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.

Fun but can’t play without connection

This game is extremely fun for those who like solitaire and want to switch it up a bit. It’s a creative twist on the classic game. That being said, here are a few of my complaints.
1) If you aren’t connected to the internet and able to watch ads, the app stops you from playing. I get that ads are where developers make their money, but games like solitaire are the ones people want to play on the road, on planes, etc where having connection isn’t possible. It basically makes it so that I can only play the game at home because let’s be honest, I’m not using data that I pay for just to watch ads I don’t want to see.
2) The app has been a bit glitchy lately and I see this stuff isn’t getting fixed since the games been abandoned for over a year. Nothing too bad, but the sizing of the screen and border gets messed up, the menu buttons stop working until I restart the app, etc.

Worth the $2.99

If you really like solitaire, in all its varieties, this version is really worth playing. It’s a very interesting remix of the game, infinitely replayable. I play it when I want to relax, I’m bored, anxious, whatever. It’s just fun, and makes you think just enough.

To the people complaining about the price - I understand that mobile games are generally considered to be less-than, and not worth more than $1 to get rid of ads. I’ve played many of Zach Gage’s games and they are are thoughtfully and beautifully made, with a lot of intention behind the design. This guy is an indie game developer, and paying him makes it easier for him to keep making new games or improving the ones you already like. I saw one review say they’d played over 2000 rounds of this game, but still thought $3 was ludicrous for a card game. I think that actually is an insanely good value for all the time they’ve spent with it! All that’s to say, consider changing the way you think about pricing and value for mobile games, and maybe get to know the makers a little better too!

Tutorial only for Apple Arcade version?

I do enjoy the game, but it feels like the non-AA version was never finished. There’s no tutorial - that I can find - and the rules aren’t intuitive. I learned how to play the basic game via Apple Arcade, (yours was the only game I kept after I canceled the subscription) but I don’t understand the concept of opening 5-suit and above. Will I ever get full access, or will it always be something to be won? I don’t understand how you earn any of the 5 points needed for 1 free-play - is it random? Score-based? I hate all your ads but I can’t find an option to buy the game. (Not sure I would, but I’d like to know the cost.). Finally, will you *please* include only those ads that let the user turn off the sound? I like to play while listening to podcasts, and it is really annoying to lose the sound when I win a hand. I understand that ads are where you get your revenue but they are very often repeats and I don’t like being stuck listening to the same stupid music over and over again.
