Uniquely Decorated Eggs
This is one of the coolest images I’ve seen on Unsplash, and I’ve really looked forward to adding it to our solitaire apps. I thought the colorful, creatively decorated eggs would be perfect for Easter. Here it is shown with the solitaire game Peek in our Solitaire MegaPack.
Some images, like this one, make great wallpapers. The warm tones and energetic nature colors are pleasing to the eye and refreshing to the spirit. The subtle contrast allows you to focus on the game, but the delightful details draw your eye and engage the artistic side of your mind.

Peek solitaire is played just like Osmosis, but the tableau cards are face-up, thus allowing you to “peek” at them. I should admit, I chose this game because Easter is coming and the name reminds me of those cute little marshmallow chickens.
The piles on the right build in suit BUT the rules for the rank are unusual. The stacks must start with the base rank (in this case, 7) and they can only build with ranks that are in the row above.
So here, I can build any ♦ on the diamond row, but only the ♣ A, 2, 4 and K in the club row, and only the 7 of hearts or spades in the 3rd and 4th rows. Cards are turned up 3 at a time from the deck. The strategy, much like in Klondike, comes from playing or not playing cards from the deck so as to reach the card you really need during your next pass through.
Now you, too, can celebrate Easter with lots of Peeks and pretty decorated eggs. Here’s the easy way! Play the very same hand of Peek Solitaire shown here, for free, on any Android device, just by tapping this button:
