The Origin | Popular Solitaires | 

Solitaire Today

Both solitaires and reasons why people enjoy playing with these patchworks of cards have, of course, changed since the old times the solitaires appeared.

In the contemporary world, we sometimes need a break from an everyday hustle and tedious treadmill.

Solving solitaires is not only a way of time-killing distraction; it is also a sure way to relax after work. Long winter nights, it helped Jack London's characters to amuse their leisure. A great musician, Nicolo Paganini was also in favor of solving solitaires; his best-liked solitaire was later called after his name.

A good solitaire not only helps you relax and kill time; it is a great mental gymnastic as well. This is why solitaires were appealing to mathematicians like Martin Gardner and Donald Knut. As his contemporaries witnessed, Prince Metternich, an eminent 19-century diplomat, used to sit and ponder over knotty solitaires before starting most difficult negotiations.

Here you will find free solitaire, or patience games' downloads on four different platforms, to various tastes, for relaxed time spending and for concentrated pondering over tricky cards combinations. Odds of solving some of our solitaires depend entirely on chance, whereas the rest of them require some serious thought.

But, of course, there are too many different kinds of solitaire and it's impossible to embrace all of them. To enrich your collections of patiences visit the solitaire pages of the Arkadium Gamedek, Silver Creek Entertainment, 123 Solitaire, Google Solitaire, Goodsol.com, Solitaire Central, Solitaire.com, SolSuite, Real Arcade, Game House, BigFishGames.
