From the creator of Sage Solitaire, comes a new Solitaire variant that breaks all the rules!
Like its footwear namesake — Flipflop Solitaire is unrestrictive, creating a new game for fans of spider, klondike and other traditional Solitaires.
In Flipflop you can stack down, up, or even both ways on a single stack!
Need to stack an 8 on a 7, or a club on a spade? No problem!
- but -
Be careful, you can only move a stack of a single suit!
It's fun and freeing, but still challenging and captivating.
It's Flipflops for your brain.

------A WORD FROM THE DEVELOPER
Flipflop Solitaire is sort of a sequel to Sage Solitaire in the sense that it's my second crack at the design problem of making a Solitaire game that feels like it was designed for your phone and not for a table.
To be honest this is how I wish everyone approached sequels. Usually a sequel takes the solution to a problem and duplicates it. This is why our expectations of game sequels are often more-of-the-same-but-better. I'd rather see more sequels that brought a renewed level of surprise and novelty, and I'm hoping that's what you find in Flipflop Solitaire.
While Sage was all about trying to capture the feeling of a tight, easy to play, tough to win, zen solitaire game, Flipflop is about knots.
In a typical Solitaire game, like Klondike, you're taking a knot of cards and untying it into sequences. Then you reverse those sequences into clean ordered stacks.
In Flipflop you take your knot of cards and tie it into other, hopefully better knots. Then you untie those knots into the final ordered stacks. Having so much control over the way your intermediary knots are constructed led to a lot more depth than I expected.
I hope you enjoy this game as much as I've enjoyed discovering it.

Ratings and Reviews
Fun game but ads are terrible
After a few trial plays, I really enjoy this game. It has good replay value. It’s not very complicated, and I usually play about 20-30 minutes a day. The games little counter says I’ve played about 2,000 times.
But $3 is a little steep with $1 being the norm for these type games. So I’ve just been suffering through the ads...until now. I have my phone silenced 99% of the time. Now if I play in bed even without an audiobook or music going the ads blare sound and (in typical ad fashion) they’re loud and obnoxious. To really twist the knife it used to be an ad after every five consecutive plays. Now that number has gotten shorter to every two or three plays.
I understand the creators wanting to make money, that pays their bills. But I won’t play if the advertising comes after every two minute game session. And I will never pay more than $1 for a card game app. So either lighten up on the ads and make less but still steady amount of ad revenue, or lose it all together.
Great, with some bugs
This isn’t a good game to play before playing normal solitaire. It’ll mess you up. However, it’s also super fun. The undo error seems to have been fixed, thankfully. The ads integration is great too. I was happy to watch ads for now to earn free plays of the harder modes until I could buy the full game. However, something that messed up my win rate on 2-suit: if you tap the top (with the title) and haven’t purchased the full game, it’ll take you to the purchase page, and if you cancel, it takes you out of your round and counts as a loss. Was not amused upon encountering that. Also, if the game crashes while you’re playing a round, it counts as a loss and will also mess up your win record, ruining my 1-suit record. Another thing to address: it should ask for confirmation if you click new game while playing a round.
You’re still a 5 Star Rating BUT...
I absolutely love your version of Solitaire on the single suit and ex-single suit (even the two suit) versions I think it’s brilliant!! BUT...I start to dislike the 3,4 & 5 Suit Modes because it becomes increasingly un win-able. I promise I’m not being bratty about never winning; my hope is only to fall more in love with those playing modes by wondering/requesting if you can enable difficulty modes (just an example) that enable card recycling back into the deck so that our chances of succeeding the 4 & 5 Suit levels increase!!?! Please? I’ll pay extra for this feature too. I like playing games that truly allow me an opportunity to “win” because it just feels sooo GOOD to win 😉 Thanks Dev! Love your game!
