My daughter is obsessed with the card game solitaire, and so I was really excited to teach her how to play Pyramid Solitaire, centered around finding the sum of 10. FreeCell has been popularized as a standard game on most Windows computers, so you’ve probably seen the layout at least a few times in passing. After dealing the cards, a player winds up with this face-up set of cards: A-10-3-2♥, 7-6-2♦, play solitaire K-4-2♣, 10-5-4♠. In that case, any card can be removed from the pyramids.
The interface isn’t as polished or modern as other solitaire games but remains a good, free and open-source option for gameplay on multiple platforms, including Windows and Linux. You and your opponents begin with 7 random cards each, and must try to get rid of them by matching their color or number with the card on top of the ‘Discard’ pile in the center of the play zone.
When you have moved all the remaining cards into the discard pile, turn it over and deal three at a time again to form another pile. Klondike Solitaire uses a standard 52-card deck of playing cards without jokers. Spider Solitaire is another variation that was widely popularized as a computer-based solitaire game.
However, what’s good about this classic card game is that it can be played for small wagers as well, giving you a chance to earn some side money while enjoying yourself for hours. Does not include loose diamonds, gemstones, or designer collections. The player with the lower card on their one-pile starts – or in case of a tie whoever has the lower card on their two-pile and so on.
