Wildlife Backgrounds by Ray Hennessy

We’ve just added two new game backgrounds based on these fantastic nature photographs from Ray Hennessy on Unsplash.

Let’s take a look at the first background, shown with the popular solitaire game called Osmosis, also known as Treasure Trove solitaire:

Osmosis 1

This photo is so fantastic! And it makes a great background with so many solitaire games. The fox’s eye peeks out from between the tableau columns in Klondike. And it’s fun to play games like Pyramid where you remove the tableau and expose more and more of the fox that had been stealthily hiding at the beginning of the game! This is a fantastic photo, and I really enjoy the mood it brings to the game!

I was really surprised that my two top choice photographs were taken by the same photographer. Ray Hennessy’s work on Unsplash is nothing short of extraordinary. This is the second new background, shown with the same hand of Osmosis but a bit farther along in the hand.

Osmosis 2

In Osmosis solitaire, the stacks in the center build, but each stack may only receive the ranks that are in the stack above it. For example, in this hand, any club card can go in the top stack, but currently only the 2, A, 10 and 8 of hearts can go into the 2nd stack. For your convenience, the available ranks are shown in red above the stack, ordered by rank.

If you’d like to play solitaire with these beautiful backgrounds, download the Solitaire Free Pack or Solitaire MegaPack apps for Android today from the Google Play Store.

Would you like to play the very same hand of Osmosis solitaire shown above?  Just tap this button using an Android device and it will get you there.
