Valentine Solitaire is a free online solitaire game that's 9 card solitaire games in one.
Yes, in this one game you can play Klondike Solitaire (1 card and 3 card), Freecell, Spider Solitaire (1, 2, or 4 Suit), and Scorpion, Wasp, and Yukon versions of solitaire.
All with a Valentine's Day holiday theme. Fun in February or any time of the year.
To begin, click the Small, Medium, or Large link or PLAY GAME button under the picture at left. This opens the game in a pop-up window.
HOW TO PLAY. Wait until the game loads in the pop-up window. You'll then see the card solitaire selection menu, with 1-Card klondike displayed first.
There are 9 different card solitaire games you can choose from. A picture is shown of each version, with the name above.
To scroll through the list, click the big right and left arrow button on the screen.
From left to right, you'll scroll through 1 Card (Klondike), 3 Card (Klondike), Freecell, Spider Solitaire (1 Suit), Spider Solitaire (2 Suits), Spider Solitaire (4 Suits), Scorpion Solitaire, Wasp Solitaire, and Yukon Solitaire.
Simply click the picture of the solitaire game you want to play. This loads the game and deals the cards. To move cards around the game table, drag them with the mouse.
As you'll see, this valentine solitaire game has valentine hearts and other Valentine holiday images all over it. The background has hearts, and even the cards themselves have the Valentine's Day theme.
Following are the rules for each of the solitaire games. You can also access this imformation by clicking the gear button at the bottom of each game.
Stack cards into piles of descending order (Queen on King, 9 on 10, etc.), alternating the color of each card (red on black / black on red).
In 1-Card Klondike, flip through the deck (draw pile - top left) one card at a time for more cards. In 3-Card Klondike, flip through the draw pile 3 cards at a time for more cards.
Place Kings on empty spaces that open up in the table. To win, fill all suit-specific foundation piles (top right) in ascending order (Ace to King). Get all cards in foundations to win.
ONLY pull cards from the deck when they help you reveal more cards in the table, or get more cards into the foundations.
Like regular (Klondike) solitaire, in Freecell Solitaire stack cards, alternating color, in descending order on the table.
Store unwanted cards in one of the 4 empty "free cells" (top left). ALWAYS have an exit strategy for any card you place in a free cell.
Place ANY card (not just Kings) on empty space that open up in the table. Fill all suit-specific foundations (top right) in ascending order (Ace to King) to win.
Unlike regular (Klondike) solitaire, in Spider Solitaire stack cards of the SAME suit in descending order.
In 2-Suit and 4-Suit Spider Solitaire, AVOID stacking cards of different colors.
Try to reveal as many cards in the table as quickly as possible.
Click the "stock cards" (bottom right) to add them to the table. Stack a pile of cards from King to Ace to remove it from the table. Remove all cards to win.
Like Spider Solitaire, in Scorpion Solitaire stack cards of the SAME suit in descending order. Unlike Spider Solitaire, you can move around any flipped cards in the table.
Try to reveal as many cards in the table as quickly as possible. Stack cards (of the same suit) from King to Ace to remove them. Remove all cards to win.
Note: The rules ("Strategy") explanation for Wasp solitaire seem to be missing.
Play Yukon Solitaire just like regular (Klondike) solitaire.
Stack cards into piles of descending order, alternating color (red on black). Click the "stock" cards (bottom right) to add them to the table.
Try to flip as many cards in the table as quickly as you can. Fill all 4 foundations to win.
Each of the individual solitaire games has additional options you might find helpful. These include Autoplay, Sound On/Off, Statistics, Undo, New Game, and Reset.
Most of these options are self-explanatory. I'll just mention that Autoplay causes available cards to automatically fly to the foundation piles as appropriate so you don't have to drag them.
There is also an automatic timer in the lower-left of the game screen. This keeps track of the length of time it takes you to complete the game.
Card games like this 9-in-1 Valentine Solitaire collection are great brain games. They train important mental skills like memory, visual perception, logical thinking, and concentration.
