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.

Will buy anything from Zack Gage but...

Every game needs a menu button to access to a tutorial. Whether it’s been a minute since I played (and I can’t remember the rules - which honestly happens more often than not since Zack’s games bend the rules) or I want to show them to someone else -

Everyone of Zack’s awesome games should let you run through the tutorial at any time. Maybe that’s already the case but I missed it - but I’m trying to play right now and it’s been a couple of weeks and I don’t remember the rules and cannot find a way to replay the tutorial.

So that is literally my only complaint - you want people to play in a new way? Create and amazing tutorial? Let people access the tutorial when they come back to the game.

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.

Fun game but ads are terrible

After a few trial plays, I really enjoy this game. It has good replay value. It’s not very complicated, and I usually play about 20-30 minutes a day. The games little counter says I’ve played about 2,000 times.

But $3 is a little steep with $1 being the norm for these type games. So I’ve just been suffering through the ads...until now. I have my phone silenced 99% of the time. Now if I play in bed even without an audiobook or music going the ads blare sound and (in typical ad fashion) they’re loud and obnoxious. To really twist the knife it used to be an ad after every five consecutive plays. Now that number has gotten shorter to every two or three plays.

I understand the creators wanting to make money, that pays their bills. But I won’t play if the advertising comes after every two minute game session. And I will never pay more than $1 for a card game app. So either lighten up on the ads and make less but still steady amount of ad revenue, or lose it all together.
