Brrrr! Shorter days and longer nights mean just one thing: the winter season is here! Rather than fighting the bitter cold, stay in the warmth of your home, brew a cup of hot tea or cocoa, and put on your cozy clothes. What better way to spend these dreary winter months than challenging your brain and playing Solitaire! The cure to your wintertime blues is in the fun you will have playing these 9 versions of the classic card game. The snowflake cards will remind you that being anywhere but in front of your computer right now will threaten frostbite! Be mindful that the otherwise red and black suits are light and dark blue in this winter-themed Solitaire game. Thaw out and enjoy the challenges that await you.
On those early mornings when Jack Frost is at your door and all you want to do is go back to bed, wake your brain up a little with the basic version of Solitaire - One Card Klondike. You will use all four suits in this game, and will work through the tableau by building your stacks in descending order. Cards must be alternating in color, however, or you won't be able to place them on top of each other. Uncovering any Aces early in the game will give you a jump-start on building your foundations! Fill these foundations with ascending cards of the same suit from the tableau, and once all four stacks have their respective King cards, you win! Click on the face-down snowflake card in the top left corner if you get stuck; this will give you one more card to work with. Once you've beat this "beginner" version of Solitaire, challenge yourself by playing more advanced versions, like Spider Solitaire, Yukon, or Wasp! After all, what else are you going to do for the next few months while you are surrounded by the cold?
