Thank you to Mobilityware for sponsoring this post.
My grandmother always had a stack of cards on her kitchen counter. Whenever she had a spare moment, she would play a game of Solitaire. She said it was to keep her mind sharp.
It must have worked because my grandmother was a smart lady and she kept her wits about her for over 90 years.
Now, whenever I see a deck of cards, I think of her.
That memory of her playing Solitaire to keep her mind sharp so she could really be there for her kids, grandkids, and great grandkids is one that I’ve treasured. I remember her in moments I’m tempted to waste time because I know she never let a moment go by without making the most of it.
This holiday season, I’m rediscovering how much I used to enjoy Solitaire with the launch of the new Solitaire app by Mobilityware. The familiar Windows Solitaire game you used to play on your computer is now available on the go!It encourages me to play daily with its Daily Challenges. Solve the Daily Challenge and you get a crown. You earn trophies by winning more crowns.
The app even has a multi-player option. My son is always now always asking me to play “solitary” with him. He is too young to understand the irony in that request.
I have to admit, I had never considered playing Solitaire against other players but this app makes it fun. This app allow you to play by yourself or challenge other players. Solitaire can deal the same hand to multiple players at the same time so they can compete against each other in real-time. You can have your choice of playing with your close friends or testing your solitaire strategy against a computer-selected random player.
Another thing that really surprised me about this is app is that you can play the Daily Challenges on the Apple Watch.
It actually works pretty well on the small watch screen so it is easy to sneak in a game while I am waiting in the long retail lines this time of year. The Draw 3 option works great on the Apple Watch.
The app also has themes that give it a nice touch this time of year.
I currently am playing with a deck of snowmen cards as I am dreaming of a white Christmas. I will be changing to the New Year’s theme, right after the holiday.
Merry Christmas and I hope you enjoy this app as much as I do.
