Happy Birthday and thank you for creating World Of Solitare. You'll laugh, but when I'm stressed out, the first thing I think of, is play a quick game of 'Relaxed Golf'. It makes me slow down and allows me to think again. So you have done more than just create a place for games.

Robert, For the last 10 years, my career has taken me to many international destinations.Relaxing with one of your games has been much appreciated when wide awake on a 12 hour-off time zone, in a hotel with only one English language TV station. I add my thanks to the many previous comments.

Robert said...

Thank you EVERYONE for all the nice comments! I really love how much everyone likes the website and it brings me a lot of happiness to know that so many folks out there enjoy what I created :)

I hope you all continue to enjoy playing for years to come :)

I'm addicted!!! Can't have an online session without a visit to WoS. I wish I'd found this site years ago. It's amazing Microsoft included solitaire on machines to teach people how to use the mouse. And now we have WoS.

I like to play Russian solitaire. After your last changes, I'm not having any fun playing it. How often is there a solution to this game? It seems as though the per cent of a possible solution has gone done a lot, making it mostly frustrating instead of pleasurable.

@Anonymous:

As per Russian Solitaire being more difficult, I haven't made any changes in regards to shuffling or anything like that.

On World of Solitaire every hand dealt is entirely random. I do not manipulate the shuffles in any way whatsoever. That just wouldn't be cool!

Being entirely random, some hands won't be winnable and sometimes you'll have a run of bad luck :(

So it should get better once your bad luck streak runs it's course!

Some other Solitaire games are much less luck based and you can win almost 100% of the games if you are skilled enough.

Spider and FreeCell are both available and are more skill based games.

You can also try the 'Challenges' in the Solitaire menu. These deals are guaranteed to be winnable and the Easy rated ones can be a good thing to play when you feel like you need a win, although I do not have a Russian Solitaire version of challenges :(

I hope this helps :)
