Aces Up

Aces Up Still loving it after 1000 hands!   There are many great solitaire games, but few are as easy and fun as Aces Up!  I’ve easily played a thousand hands of Aces Up, and it’s still one of my favorite go-to games.  Maybe it’s the thrill of dealing out those 4 cards again and

Monaco and Monte Carlo

The layouts look the same, but the strategy is altogether different. Both games start with a 5 x 5 grid of cards.  Adjacent cards are removed and you win if the entire board is cleared.  Now for the differences… In Monte Carlo, cards are removed if they are have rank.  For example, two 5’s that

Casket

Don’t be discouraged by the complexity of this game – it’s easy to play and one of the most fun games I’ve seen yet. Cards are played from the deck (right side) onto the “Casket” tableau (center) or foundations (left).  The “Casket” builds down in suit and foundations build up in suit. The “Jewels” play

Intelligence

A double-deck version of La Belle Lucie, this game indeed requires “intelligence” to master. Foundations build up in suit. The Tableau builds down in suit but only the top card of a pile can be moved, so any move you make will limit your future maneuverability. Although challenging, you cannot lose too quickly and the
