Summary

I’m on a proper Solitaire trip at the moment, I have played many iterations so I jumped at the chance of playing another one. Initial impressions were good, I like card games on the Switch that actually use touchscreen! The game builds over time adding new cards to play like wild cards or flipping cards over. Thing is most Solitaire games now have these special cards so it’s nothing new. The game never builds up to anything and instead is just a simple Solitaire game, it plays perfectly fine and does what you think it would but it just never takes a risk or add in anything unique. If you like it simple you are in good company otherwise this is not the game you are looking for.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
