"The Game" is the digital single player version of the popular card game, that was nominated in 2015 for the german "Spiel des Jahres" (Game of the Year).

Play ... as long as you can! The Game is you opponent. You can beat it, but even if the rules are very simple - it will not be easy. Think carefully and plan ahead, this is the only way to succeed! During the game, four piles of cards are formed. Two piles are in ascending order (numbers 1–99), and two piles are in descending order (numbers 100–2). The player tries to lay as many cards as possible, all 98 if possible, in four piles of cards.

Play the game - or the game starts playing with you ...

"This is the solitaire game only, and it's nearly perfect [...] It's this combination of luck-of-the-draw mixed with hand management that creates a load of tension and makes The Game shine." BoardGameGeek

"The Game offers a fun and challenging puzzle game and a faithful recreation of the cardboard version." (4/5) pocket tactics

"... a solid, really enjoyable and challenging solitaire-style game [...] well worth a look."

Can't Stop Playing and Don't Want To

This is one of the funniest card games I have ever played. I tend to play the Lift Up version because otherwise it just feels like you'll never win and with that version you actually have points to strive for as well. Overall it's a great time passer and it's one of those games that makes you strategize and plan ahead. Something most of us could use some help on. The Developer did an amazing job. My only qualm is that there isn't a real leaderboard. If there were I would be striving to be at the top and I'd play even more!!!!!! Enjoy!

Glad you like it! We are currently developing an update with some nice enhancements. There also will be an additional leaderboard. Thank you for your support.


Ulimately Uninteresting

I rather enjoy the multiplayer version of this asininely titled game. However, this only includes the solitaire version. Although initially a decent diversion for a few games, it quickly becomes apparent that your failure or your success is predominantly destined by the order of the deck. Poor play will cost you the game, but optimal play may be moot if the cards are against you. I like chance, but this gets pointless. The interface can also be unforgiving, forbidding reasonable backtracking. Not worth what I paid.

Sorry you don't like it. We will add some things in the future like "solvable stacks" and "replay the same stack". Perhaps this is something for you. The multiplayer part of the game isn't easy to port well to digital devices, because it depends on the communication of the players.

Favorite solitaire game

It is difficult, but really addictive. The graphics are solid, and the inclusion of two alternate versions makes this easily with the price.
