Warning: This is not your grandma's Solitaire.
Play online multiplayer live with other players or offline.
Objective: To play all your cards first.
How to Play:
-Each player is dealt five face cards to form a hand, and each player is dealt 15 cards face down to form a draw pile. If you are playing with jokers, you use them as wild cards and give each draw pile 16 cards. A stack of five cards, placed face down on each side between the players, serves as a replacement pile. Finally, two cards are placed face down in the center between the replacement piles.
-You may play a card in your hand by discarding it in the "Play Pile" if the card is 1 number/value higher or lower. (e.g. 5 can be played on a 6 or 4, a Queen can be played on a King or Jack)
-A 2 may be played on an Ace and a Ace may be played on a 2.
-You may have up to 5 cards in your hand at a single time. When you have less than 5 cards in your hand you may draw from your "Draw Pile"
-First player to play all of his/her cards wins!
Multiplayer mode's ranking system is the ELO ranking system: The Elo rating system is a method for calculating the relative skill levels of players in competitor-versus-competitor games such as chess.
After you play speed, multiplayer card games like blackjack, solitaire, or poker will feel slow.

Ratings and Reviews
Fun, easy to use, nice graphics...
Fun, easy to use, nice graphics, and good variety in levels of difficulty (useful for when you only play one-handed while taking a quick lunch break). It has an online & local play option, but internet service is not required to play the other options (I have not played the online game options). It is a great time-filler when you just have only a few moments to fill - but also for when you have a lot of time to fill. It is very addictive, so don’t start playing when you are heading to bed for the night and need to get some sleep! I’ve only had this app for a couple of weeks or so, but I haven’t noticed any glitches with the app in that time and I use it for a few minutes a couple of times to several times a day. I have really enjoyed this app and am glad I finally thought to search to see if it was available for my iPhone. Works just as well on my iPad, too.
FAST but - - -
It seems that support saw my below review as problem is fixed. Give it 5* again although faster levels are nerve wracking.
I gave this a 5 previously but have to downgrade it to 3 at best. No app support- goes to a developer owned promo page.
Here’s the problem. When it has an add pop up at least 50% of the time there is a broken link and I get this google page saying 404 the requested url was not found. Then I have to close out the app and reopen to play. If a developer sees this PLEASE fix or I’ll be deleting.
Lack of Diversity
The game itself is great. Gameplay is smooth and the various challenge levels are a nice feature. My 2 star rating is for the lack of diversity in choosing an avatar. It costs 50g for a white long-haired or short-haired figure yet 250g for the only person of color; and there is only one, not even a long/short hair option. Additionally, there are many (white) occupational avatars at the 250g level, including a criminal. I find it sad that the cost of a criminal avatar is the same for the only person of color avatar.
While this is a simple, enjoyable game, the lack of avatar diversity is representative of a drop in the bucket of an overall systematic issue of people with certain skin colors having more options than others.
