They say solitaire is a loner's game. I wonder why... Maybe because it is a game one can play by oneself. I refer to it as the card game and I would usually play this to while away the time. I really enjoy playing this game and even learned some variations along the way. Some people call the card game as "Patience". It involves placing the cards in a layout and sorting them according to some set of of rules. I am unable to explain the rules clearly though because I just learned it. It is quite easy though and once you get the hang of it, you can play on and on and on.
There's even so many variations to the game already and there are many free solitaire games available on the internet. It is amazing how the simple solitaire game has evolved: from the simple solitaire card game to other variations like the mahjong solitaire and even the peg solitaire, which seem more like a puzzle since once it is solved, it is repeatable. There's one interesting free pyramid solitaire game that I found on the net, whose aim is to remove all the cards from the pyramid. The rules are simple but it is quite difficult to remove all the cards from the pyramid. One can only remove two cards at a time, and they should add up to 13. If they don't add up, you can draw another one from the deck of cards. The King can be removed as it is by clicking on it with a mouse. It is indeed a challenging game. I have been playing it for a while now although I haven't had any luck in removing all the cards yet. I guess I just have to have more patience and pray for some luck.
Try it and see if you can win! It may be a loner's game but there is still some fun to it. :)
