Solitaire Games

Hello, everyone. I'm back with another "different" (as I do from time to time) but somehow connected piece.

If you follow Given To Rock, you know that I'm a huge fan of the 80s and the 90s, not just in terms of music, but also in terms of movies and video games. In regards to the second category, everything began back then, as I'm sure you are aware if you are a video game enthusiast.

My first console was the Nintendo NES, yep, the very first one (I know, I'm old!), which I received in 1988 if my memory serves me well. What was the name of my first game? Super Mario Bros, of course, is a must-have for Nintendo (and is included in the packing, so you can't even avoid it) and is still highly regarded and discussed everywhere. Then there are games like Mega Man, Rad Racer, Ducktales, Track and Field II, Street Fighter, and Tetris that come to mind. What a fantastic time in the history of video games. Well, it's also pricey! Even back then, they were quite expensive, and I had to wait months and months to receive a new one.

In the 90s there were the first Windows and what do you do when you have 10 minutes to spare? Solitaire, of course. Here to tell you that there is a website just for that called, offering not only Solitaire games but offering you games of logic, words, puzzles etc. As I already mentioned the solitaire on Microsoft Windows, I enjoyed playing with Klondike (see screenshot below) which is exactly that one but with the addition of the score (if you are slow you will lose points!) and the possibility to choose between 1 card or the 3 card format.

Among other categories I mentioned, there are crosswords too, if you are a fan (I have a friend obsessed with crosswords!) 

Of course, we're not talking about last-generation console games here; rather, we're talking about pleasant and entertaining retro games that you (or your kids) may play on your phone when you want to unwind for ten minutes, wait for a buddy, and so on. The website is also really speedy and minimal, and it's all about gaming. It's also absolutely free, so take a look.
