------A WORD FROM THE DEVELOPER
Klondike and FreeCell Solitaire are great games when all you have is a deck of cards, but you have more than that, you have the computer phone of the future! Our phone screens aren't the size of a table (yet), so why do we have to play solitaire games designed for tables?
Isn't it time we had a solitaire game where the cards were big enough to see and easily touch? Shouldn't there be a solitaire game light enough to play casually, yet deep enough for swapping strategies with friends?
At least that's what I think.
I hope you enjoy Sage Solitaire.

Sage Solitaire is like a satisfying mix of solitaire and poker. By combining solitaire’s familiar card-stacking gameplay with poker hands—pairs, straights, flushes, and the like—Sage Solitaire creates a novel and surprisingly strategic twist on a beloved classic. Whether you play the basic single-deck game or one of the variants (Fifteens Mode is a favorite of ours), it’s a fresh and challenging reboot of one of the oldest card games around.
Thanks for the update!!
The 2.0 update with newer device support is very much appreciated! I’m excited to be able to play this game again with it taking full advantage of the new screen sizes!
One other feature I’d like to see added: darker colored backgrounds for day mode and/or the ability to switch the card front color separately from day/night mode.
The night mode feature is super useful, and I love the dark backgrounds it includes, but I prefer the white card front color for my normal game play. Given the OLED display of the newer iPhones, I know the darker backgrounds of night mode are also better for battery life so I’d love to be able to compromise a little and have a darker background with the white card front, whether that be by adding darker backgrounds to day mode or by allowing the card front color to change separately. Perhaps it could even be implemented so that all backgrounds are available regardless of the day/night mode, a switch exists for the card front, but the night mode switch remains available too. That way, users can customize their main game day mode however they want with any combo of dark/light background and black/white card front, while still having the convenience of the night mode switch to instantly get the dark on dark combo when desired!
PERFECT GAME...Challenging+No Stress
This is my favorite game; my 'go-to game. It's unique, a different breed of solitaire that I've never seen before. It's deceptively simple to play, but quite a challenge to win (by clearing the board, beating your highest score, or if you want, competing against the leaderboards and other challenges). It offers tons of backgrounds, card backs, ways to play, and fun 'awards' with a sense of humor - all in a seamless, simple and uncluttered format. Brilliantly done!!
There are different options of play, like "Vegas Style", "Single Deck", "Double Deck" and a couple more. I've been playing Single Deck all along and still not bored! I look forward to trying the others.
UPDATE: Aug 2016
Wanted to review again, after the latest update. Everything I said in original review still stands, and then some! I still play this game all the time - still my go-to game after all these months! I Never get bored of it. Since my last review I tried out the 15-mode game, and I am addicted! I also tried Vegas style, and definitely have a lot of room to grow on that one :-o. I love the challenge of it. I am also very glad the game lets me reset my bank back to where it started. (I wasn't doing so bad, but my husband tried and he really put me in debt!). I can't say enough about Sage Solitaire! Thank you, zac (i think that's the right name for who created this game)... you are a genius!!
