A free, high-quality version of the classic solitaire (patience) game along with equally addictive variants. Features include animation, retina graphics and in-game instructions and hints. The app also includes a link to its sister app Solitaire Whizz, featuring Free Cell, Pyramid and over 20 different solitaire games.
Click the ‘?’ icon in any of the games to get full on-screen instructions. Click the light bulb icon at any point to be prompted with a possible move. In general:
* the object of the game is to build up the cards on to 4 “foundation” piles, from Ace to King;
* build one suit per foundation pile;
to help you organize the cards, build downwards on to the bottoms of the “tableau” of columns;
* initially, cards not in the tableau are placed on a “stock” pile; double-tap the stock pile to go through the cards, building them on to the tableau and foundations where possible;
* face-down cards in the tableau are turned face up when there are no cards on top of them;
* you can move whole sequences from one column to another;
* empty columns can be filled with cards or sequences, depending on the game in question.
KLONDIKE - This is the “classic” solitaire or patience game. If you’ve played “solitaire” or “patience” without knowing precisely which game you were playing, it was probably Klondike. Cards are built on to the tableau in downwards sequence, alternating color (red/black). Empty columns are filled with a King or sequence beginning with a King.
WHITEHEAD - This is an easier variant of Klondike. All cards are visible from the start of the game. Build on to the tableau in downwards sequence, with cards of the same color. Move sequences that are of the same suit. Any card or sequence can fill an empty column.
AGNES - In this variant, foundations do not necessarily start with an Ace. Instead of a stock pile, there are 8 “reserve” cards, all available for play.

Just downloaded on to my iPad today and it has crashed 3x already. If it continues to crash I will uninstall. Any ideas as to why? Would have been 5 stars if it didn't crash so often.
I have had your Pyramid game for a long time and love it even though it doesn't keep track of time accurately. Yesterday I did a game in 36 seconds and it says 42 seconds was my best time!!! Go figure!!!
This is my favorite game to play on my iPad. However, I just purchased a new iPad and it will not let me download it because it needs an update to work with ios11.......I Am on a fixed income so really like that I was able to play 3 different versions for free. Please update......
Great Card game
I like that there are clear instructions on how to play the game before you start. I also like that they give continue to give you help on playing the game throughout.
