Solitaire comes in many traditional forms. Thanks to the creativity of App Store developers, there are now all new forms of Solitaire to be challenged by. These games move beyond Klondike, Freecell, Golf, Spider, Pyramid, and the likes to offer all new ways to play solitaire.

Card Thief

Guide your thief through the dungeon as stealthy as possible with specific cards.

The board game is composed of three rows and three columns of cards. You try to move your thief past guards, through traps, and to collect gold. The game gives you limited stealth, and every move costs stealth points, so you need to be careful with every card you move to.

One Handed Solitaire is a card game played with a traditional 52 card deck, minus the jokers. It can be played in one hand and does not require a flat surface to arrange the cards. After shuffling the playing cards, hold the deck face down in your hand. Draw four cards from the deck and place them on top of the face down deck of cards. You will fan out the cards so that the suit and face value can be seen at all times for the last 4 cards.

The object of the game is to discard as many cards as you can, in the least amount of shuffles of the deck. To start discarding you must have at least four cards drawn from the deck and face-up in your hand. To discard cards, you need to match either the suit or face value of the cards in the first and fourth position (from the most recently drawn cards in your hand). If you match the suit, for example both are Hearts or Diamonds, you discard the middle two cards. If you match the face value, for example both are Aces or 9s, you discard all four cards. After you discard, if you still have at least four cards face up in your hand, look for another match before drawing one card. Repeat these steps until you draw all the cards or discard all of them. If you run out of cards to draw, you may keep playing and reshuffle your remaining cards and continue to discard when you find matches.

Along the way you’ll earn points and achievements for discarding in Apple’s Game Center, so make sure to log in or create your free account.

One Handed Solitaire is a fun way to pass the time and compete with friends for the best score! If you enjoy the game please leave a star rating and review. If you’re having problems with the game please email support or tweet us first before leaving an App Store rating and review.

Outline Development

"The Game" is the digital single player version of the popular card game, that was nominated in 2015 for the german "Spiel des Jahres" (Game of the Year).

StackJack Free: Blackjack Meets Solitaire in an Arcade Casino Card Game

Lost Island Entertainment

•• Blackjack + Solitaire = StackJack ••

If you enjoy card games, then get this game!

Easy to learn, yet addictive to play!
Instead of playing just one hand of blackjack at a time against the dealer, you are playing five hands at once, racing the clock, and trying to get enough points to move on to the next round.

You are shown one card at the top of the deck. Choose which of the five hands to which you wish to add the card, getting each hand as close to 21 as possible without going over (or “busting”). If you don’t want to play a card, you can tap “Pass” to discard it and get the next one, but you only get a limited number of passes per round, so use them sparingly.

If you are playing multiplayer mode via the Apple Game Center, you are also trying to beat your friend’s scores round by round using the exact same deck, until one of you doesn’t make it to the next round.

Features:
• Play on iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch, with iOS version 5.0 or higher.
• Play solo or compete against your friends through the Apple Game Center.
• Leaderboards and achievements.
• Easy to learn, yet difficult to master.
• Great if you like solitaire and card games.
