Editors’ Notes

Wage war by sea, land, air…and a card table? You may think you’ve played solitaire before, but this fresh take on the venerable classic was invented by none other than Sir Winston Churchill, and the game’s lush presentation is imbued with historical flavor. Using two decks of cards and some challenging rule tweaks, it’s a wonderfully strategic reimagining of a familiar standard. And if Churchill’s design weren't enough to give the game a military pedigree, the app is the brainchild of former U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld.

Fun and addictive but lost the fifth star

Ever since Churchill solitaire was released, I’ve been an enthusiastic player. I remain baffled, however, by the omission from the rules of an explanation of how bonus points are earned. I typically play random deals. After I win a challenging game, I’m disappointed to see that I earned no bonus points, but after I win an easy game, I’m surprised to see that I earned 100. How are bonus points calculated?

Lately, (or perhaps after the last update), the card layout on my iPhone 7 Plus immediately switches to portrait mode after the deal. Previously, I could play in landscape mode and turn to portrait mode after my rows extended beyond the view. I miss very much the capability to switch modes back and forth, especially when I have difficulty distinguishing a spade from a club in portrait view.

Except for these annoying issues, Churchill solitaire is indeed a five star game.

Anti-entertaining

There are two metrics in which a game can be objectively evaluated: implementation quality and how much fun (or entertaining) it is.
Implementation quality is awful. Try and tap the cards for them to move. You will think you are trying a move that is not allowed. Besides, It lacks indispensable features. For example, it has no pause. You are playing against the clock and your dog asks you to go for a walk. Guess what? No pause. I will leave the lack of proper undo and hint for the other metric.
How much fun is it? Not at all. Playing a game is something we do for fun. It is that break time we give ourselves. Playing this game? You’d better pay attention because you make a bad move, your undo will cost you. You are tired, want to play a game to relax a bit. You want to hit the deck but you are unsure you have done all moves you could. In a proper game, you ask for a hint. In this game you shouldn’t, it will cost you. Yes, instead of entertaining yourself, you have to worry about spending more money, probably one of the things you wanted to forget in the first place when you decided to play a game.
Finally, have Churchill’s surviving family members really authorized to put his name on a game where money gets you promoted? Really? Is this Churchill’s model of climbing the military ranks? In this game, once you give them some money, you will get promoted. That’s a shame. Apple should not have approved this low quality rip-off scam of a game.
