Blindfold Solitaire is a fully accessible Solitaire card game for both sighted and visually impaired people, designed for rapid audio play.
Blindfold Solitaire includes Klondike 3, the typical game of solitaire where you build all four suits from ace to king in separate piles, and 28 cards are dealt into seven piles on the tableau, where the first pile contains 1 card, the second pile has two cards with only the top card showing, the third pile has 3 cards with only the top card showing and so on. Each time you draw from the deck, you get 3 more cards.
The cards are not visible; instead, you play by listening. You can flick left or right, or up or down, to hear the cards. You move a card from one pile to another by tapping on the screen twice to start the move, and then tapping twice again to complete the move. A complete guide to the gestures is included in the help.
Blindfold Solitaire tells you if a card can be moved to the foundation piles, and can be set to move the cards automatically. You can customize the game to your liking: how much extra information is spoken and how quickly it is spoken.
Blindfold Solitaire was suggested by several blind gamers who enjoyed Blindfold Racer and Blindfold Blackjack.
There is a STARTER PACK in-app upgrade that unlocks all settings features, and gives you a second Solitaire game: Klondike 1 (where you get 1 card at a time instead of 3 cards at a time), an in-app upgrade for several variants of Spider Solitaire, an in-app upgrade for several variants of Free Cell, an in-app upgrade for several variants of Golf Solitaire, and an in-app upgrade for several variants of Addition Solitaire, and another in-app upgrade for 6 more difficult variants of Free Cell. We'll be adding more Solitaire games as in-app upgrades.

Ratings and Reviews
great and thanks
Blindfold Solitaire is great.
This is the first time I've played 2deck Free Cell.
The default speech rate is great for learning the game; now I'm ready for a speech rate a little faster than the maximum superFast.
Tapping the screen in 1 of 3 sections makes it easy to focus on the foundation, free cells, and tableau without swiping, although the 2-finger swipe left works fine while learning.
Klondike works great, too, but my interest is more with Free Cell.
Here are some things on my wish list. Note that these wishes do not suggest deficiencies, since I use Blindfold Solitaire a lot already.
Re: A few of things I'd like via my Braille Sense:
1) The card name being displayed, perhaps followed (on the braille display) by the column number, although, if putting the column number on the display would require speech, then I'd rather not have the extra speech.
2) I'd like the Braille Sense to control single-finger swipe gestures because, when I plug in my USB keyboard, using the arrow keys is much more comfortable when doing a lot of swiping.
3) Especially in 2deck Free Cell, it might be interesting to have a way to use my 32 routing keys to go to a particular card in a pile.
Next: A few years ago I enjoyed what I think is a variant of Free Cell called Penguin, and I'd like that in this app.
Anyway, thanks for the great app of solitaire games.
Life would be somewhat boring without these Blindfold apps
I am a completely blind 21-year-old who attends a college university and I can't explain how much these games help me stay entertained during my breaks. Not only during my breaks, but whenever I have free time! Blindfold Games have change my life and I'm so grateful for the people who created these apps. I've been sad and discouraged with how most game apps aren't accessible with voiceover, but Blindfold Games is nothing less than absolutely amazing!!! Thank you guys!!!
Love this game!
Best solitaire I have ever played.
Superbly created app.
