Google Solitaire is a simple, addicting version of the classic Klondike Solitaire card game that is conveniently built right into the Google search engine.
To play Google Solitaire, simply search for “Solitaire” on Google, then click the “Play Solitaire” card that appears at the top of the search results page. The game will then open and deal out the cards onto the virtual tabletop.
The goal is the same as regular Klondike Solitaire – use logic and strategy to stack all 52 cards into their foundations from Ace to King in their respective suits. You click and drag cards to columns and foundations as possible according to the rules.
Handy features in Google Solitaire include unlimited undo to reverse moves, automatic redeal when stuck, statistics tracking for win rate and fastest time, and optional card draw animations.
For players looking to squeeze in a quick solitaire game on a work or school computer where games are normally off limits, Google Solitaire provides a handy way to get your fix without downloads or installs. The simple graphics and sounds make for uncomplicated fun.
One warning about Google Solitaire – it can lead to lost productivity thanks to how effortless it is to immediately start playing right from the search bar. But sometimes a little procrastination pays off when you finally clear that table after minutes or hours of trying!
With Google Solitaire, a familiar solitaire challenge is never more than a quick web search away. It delivers that feeling of satisfaction when the last cards stack into place just right to complete your virtual card shuffling journey.
To move cards in Google Solitaire, you can click on them to select them. You can then drag them to another pile. You can only move cards that are one rank higher or one rank lower than the top card of the pile you are moving them to.
You can also use the keyboard shortcuts to move cards. The following table lists the keyboard shortcuts for Google Solitaire:
- Classic: This is the classic version of solitaire. The goal is to move all of the cards from the tableau to the foundation piles.
- Freecell: This is a more challenging version of solitaire. In Freecell, you have four free cells that you can use to temporarily store cards. This can be helpful for moving cards around and making more moves.
- Spider: This is the most challenging version of solitaire. In Spider, you have to move cards in alternating colors. This can be very difficult, but it is also very rewarding.
- Start by clearing the top cards of the tableau. This will make it easier to move the other cards around.
- Use the free cells to store cards that you can’t use right away. This will free up space on the tableau and make it easier to make moves.
- Be patient. Solitaire is a challenging game, and it takes time to master. Don’t get discouraged if you don’t win every game. Just keep practicing and you’ll eventually get better.
