Bid goodbye to your free time because Microsoft just brought Solitaire, arguably its greatest creation, to Android and iOS.
The game has been a staple of the Windows operating system for 25 years and boasts 119 million players on Windows 8 and Windows 10 alone. Now it’s jumping to third-party platforms for the first time ever.
Remember the days before high-speed broadband and photo-realistic graphics, when the best games you could get on PC were things like Win Pool, Brickbuster, and Gopher-It? Now you can go back in time and relive them right inside your web browser.
Elevens is a solitaire card game in which players lay down cards, face-up and in a grid of 3X3. They then remove the cards in groups when they add up to eleven, and go until they can go no more.
Cassandra’s 11 is based on this game, in that you must tap cards from a grid when they add up to eleven. Tap a Nine and Two card, for example, or a Five, a Four, and a Two. What takes this universal app from developer Plexonic to the next level is the puzzle aspect.

Fairway Solitaire is a fun mix of the classic card game, Solitaire, and golf. While teeing shots, putting balls and clearing courses, a pesky gopher pops up occasionally to laugh at the ineptitude of the card-turning, 8-iron swinging player. The antagonistic gopher, McDivot, is a sworn enemy of all golfers. The game is rated 5/5 stars on iTunes.
