Editors' Review

+
With more game options than a Vegas card room and plenty of help files through which to shuffle, this free program is a must-have for solitaire card sharks. Installation is fast, safe, and nag-screen free. A main menu lets you easily scroll through the 12 game options. Each game is rated in terms of difficulty and skill level, and even outlines how many decks are used and your chances of actually winning the game. Time played and game score is kept in the upper right-hand corner of the main game screen. One of the best features (aside from its great list of games, of course) of 123 Free Solitaire 2006 is its detailed help files. Clearly written, each file outlines how to play the game and even gives definitions of words that might be unfamiliar. We especially like the occasional "strategy" hint link, which gives you a secret clue to playing a game better. Cards scrape and slap on the desktop "table," yet if you're sneaking a game at work, the sound can be muted. You also can customize the card design and tabletop to your liking--choices for cards include cartoon snowmen to Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa, while bold background patterns or colors can be swapped whenever you choose. While game statistics and redo/undo are features only available in the developer's paid version, they're not critical items. Overall, 123 Free Solitaire 2006 should be a welcome diversion for card sharks and newbies alike--now if we could only quit playing and get back to work.

"Graphic is hard on eyes"

July 29, 2009  |  By drzyta

 |  Version: 123 Free Solitaire 2008 6

Pros

The game works with no glitches and allows user to play various games of Solitaire.

Cons

Unlike the built into Windows Solitaire game, this one has graphics that is hard on eyes, especially when one moves cards quickly. It's hard to distinguish instantly cards with the androgenic faces. In addition, there is no undo function in this game

Summary

I would still prefer the built into Windows Spider Solitaire over this one any day because of the much better graphics and the undo function.

"Not the Best"

July 27, 2009  |  By SherriP61

 |  Version: 123 Free Solitaire 2008 6

Pros

There were a variety of games.

Cons

Didn't let you play the variety of games enough to decide. Found others that let you play more & were cheaper.

Summary

So, So.

"Have to purchase to get full functionality."

July 15, 2009  |  By Rhinorear

 |  Version: 123 Free Solitaire 2008 6

Pros

I like the variety of game selections.

Cons

Gives just enough functionality to tease one into buying full featured version.

Summary

There are better free solitaire packages out there such as BigSol3D 1.4 which has a nice selection of games and more functionality.

"It was just okay"

July 07, 2009  |  By trip216

 |  Version: 123 Free Solitaire 2008 6

Pros

A simple choice of games

Cons

The graphics were too small which made it hard to play. I could not find a way to adjust the size. I purchased this game a few years ago, but I am not allowed to upgrade my version. I won't pay for it again.

"A good free solitare"

June 28, 2009  |  By kanghi416

 |  Version: 123 Free Solitaire 2008 6

Pros

Quick shuffle and deal. Auto play can help save time in games. Nice colors and sounds. Autoplay can be disabled.

Cons

Autoplay too simplistic and can take needed cards. Also free version does not have a "redoo" so the solution is "go manual".

Summary

It is ok for what it is. Best of all its free!

"Somewhat Simple - OK Graphics But Not Really Free"

June 22, 2009  |  By mjhawkins2346

 |  Version: 123 Free Solitaire 2008 6

Pros

It is fun to play and mildly engaging.
It offers a lot of choices in ways to play and level of difficulty.

Cons

It's annoying that the undo and other simple features are crippled in the sample-ware design.
It needs nicer graphics and at least "undo" and "hint" made active.
It could use fewer fewer options which are more than most people need or know use.

Summary

This isn't free and does have nags and closed features to encourage a purchase. The graphics are 2nd rate compared to MS Solitaire in Vista/ W7.
