Solitaire, FreeCell and Spiderette – all in one app! You know them, you’ve played ‘em , but do you have them on your mobile app? These are games you can play against yourself when you are bored or simply waiting for something or someone. In fact, before these games were called Solitaire, they were called “Patience” – going all the way back to 1765!
There’s something strangely hypnotic and soothing about any of the different versions of Solitaire. This was even recognized by Microsoft which started including Solitaire as part of the Windows Operating System starting with Windows 3.0 back in 1990. Solitaire is the kind of game that helped people intimidated by computers to warm up to them – easy to play, requiring attention to detail – and a lot of luck!
The game has been so popular that it was even referenced by The Statler Brothers in their 1966 song, “Flowers on the Wall” which spent four weeks as Billboard magazine’s #2 Hot Country Singles chart and #4 on its Hot 100 – but the Statler’s version was “a card short of a full deck” —
Counting flowers on the wall
That don’t bother me at all
Playin’ solitaire till dawn with a deck of fifty-one
Smokin’ cigarettes and watchin’ Captain Kangaroo
Now don’t tell me I’ve nothing to do.
