Who isn’t familiar with the 90’s sensation, Solitaire, which came in-built with a Windows PC? It was a stress buster and boredom releaser. Everybody could play a few rounds without much difficulty. But where is the challenge in a game when you know you’ll win?
Such monotony and dreariness of the game kept one Zach Gage awake at night. This eventually led him to create Sage Solitaire a few years back, which was his version of Solitaire meets Poker. This year he’s created Flipflop Solitaire which is in a way a sequel to Sage Solitaire. His twisted take on solitaire has been called disorienting yet simultaneously familiar. It is fun, addictive and breathes a new life into the traditional card game that we’ve all grown up playing.
As with all kinds of Solitaire, the goal of Flipflop Solitaire is to also move all the cards into four ordered stacks, starting with the Ace. However, the twist in the game is that unlike other versions, you can stack your cards both in the ascending and descending order. It gives you the freedom to create a sequence of cards as you please. So, this means instead of stacking them in the descending order so Queen can be placed on King, in Flipflop you also can stack it the other way around. If you have a stack beginning with 7, you can build on it by 6, 5, 4 but can also build it with 8, 9, 10 or 6, 5, 4, 5. It opens up a lot more options for moving cards around but there is a catch. You can only move stacks of a single suit. This dynamic where you can constantly change sequences of cards makes the game challenging and interesting.

It’s definitely tougher than before but now it also has an undo button that keeps you from getting overly frustrated. It also lets you start easy by offering a single suit mode. Once you master single-suit play, you can try your hand at two through five suits or even try the ex-single mode where you sort five stacks of one suit instead of the regular four.
Flipflop Solitaire is designed only for the iOS and fits perfectly on both the iPhone screen and the iPad.
Try out this new FlipFlop Solitaire by Zach Gage and you’ll know that this game developer stands true to his reputation for messing with the classics, in a good way.
