From the creator of Sage Solitaire, comes a new Solitaire variant that breaks all the rules!

100% of deals are solvable!

Like its footwear namesake — Flipflop Solitaire is unrestrictive, creating a new game for fans of spider, klondike and other traditional Solitaires.

In Flipflop you can stack down, up, or even both ways on a single stack!
Need to stack an 8 on a 7, or a club on a spade? No problem!

- but -

Be careful, you can only move a stack of a single suit!
It's fun and freeing, but still challenging and captivating.

It's Flipflops for your brain.

Flipflop Solitaire is sort of a sequel to Sage Solitaire in the sense that it's my second crack at the design problem of making a Solitaire game that feels like it was designed for your phone and not for a table.

To be honest this is how I wish everyone approached sequels. Usually a sequel takes the solution to a problem and duplicates it. This is why our expectations of game sequels are often more-of-the-same-but-better. I'd rather see more sequels that brought a renewed level of surprise and novelty, and I'm hoping that's what you find in Flipflop Solitaire.

While Sage was all about trying to capture the feeling of a tight, easy to play, tough to win, zen solitaire game, Flipflop is about knots.

In a typical Solitaire game, like Klondike, you're taking a knot of cards and untying it into sequences. Then you reverse those sequences into clean ordered stacks.

In Flipflop you take your knot of cards and tie it into other, hopefully better knots. Then you untie those knots into the final ordered stacks. Having so much control over the way your intermediary knots are constructed led to a lot more depth than I expected.

I hope you enjoy this game as much as I've enjoyed discovering it.

Great solitaire game

Once I got my head around the unique gameplay, the game itself rocks. This is now pretty much the only solitaire game I play. The reason I docked it a star is because some times, close to 50%, when you tap on a card it moves where it’s supposed to and the other 50% it just wiggles at you - frustrating when you’re trying for a quick game.

Better than good

One of the great things about this game is the size of the cards. With only five columns this is a great game for "older" eyes even on a smaller iPhone such as the 2020 SE.
The UI is visually pleasing anyway as is the whole game.
This is a totally original and refreshing take on traditional solitaire with levels of difficulty allowing almost unlimited challenge levels as you improve your gameplay.
There are numbered as well as standard games, great music, interesting backgrounds and really useful range of preferences.
I've found this and other games by Zach Gage to be totally addictive and I'm sure you will too.

I was dubious on reading the App of the Day writeup for this. After all, most solitaire games that aren’t the classic tend to fall flat. But this is great fun! It’s got enough similarities to the classical “solitaire” to be quick to pick up, but it adds a whole other dimension. The card and UI designs are fun yet uncluttered, and the game feel (that’s totally a thing) is brilliant. Every movement of the cards and the haptic feedback is well tuned (I can’t vouch for audio as I play on mute). Really good job, dev. :D
