I have discovered the joy of playing games again. I’ve been working very long hours for a few years now, and I think I was starting to break down a bit (not in a good way). So I have intentionally started to set aside a period of time, when I can, to just read a book or putter on a game or two. What a difference a little down time makes!
I can’t say I was ever much of a game person, actually. (Oddly enough, my mom was the same way when I was a kid). I liked checkers and Scrabble while growing up, but I was the only one in the family who liked doing something else besides wrestling and whacking a baseball…. so I used to play games by myself and eventually got out of the habit, especially when I became a workaholic after my first child was born. I haven’t really played any games in a long time, although I have always preferred soltairy games like Solitaire and other card games. I like organizing things and I always feel like I’ve accomplished something when all those messy cards are placed in order and magically stack themselves up into perfect piles! I love the computer card games, but it’s not very fun sitting at the computer to play games when you’ve been sitting there for 8 hours working all day. Up to now, I haven’t found any really good Solitaire app for the smartphone. Until this past week, that is.
My SITS Girls pals have recommended a new Solitaire mobile app called “Solitaire Deluxe” by the Mobile Deluxe. You can see the Mobile Deluxe page on Facebook. Mobile Deluxe makes a ton of other games. I LOVE the “The Game is Afoot” game that’s a Sherlock Holmes/I-Spy kind of game. And Mobile Deluxe also makes Jewel Factory and Big Win Blackjack games, among others.
The Solitaire app is really great! The graphics are spectacular and there’s no “lag” when you move the cards (that drives me nutty on the Windows computer games). There’s an app for iPhones and Android phones. Just search the Apps Store for “Solitaire Deluxe” by Mobile Deluxe.
The Solitaire Deluxe app has Solitaire Klondike, FreeCell, Spider Solitaire, plus Tri-Peaks, Chinese Solitaire, Scorpion, King’s Corner, Yukon, and more for a total of 16 card-related games! The free app has ads or you can purchase the pro app to get rid of the ads.
Mobile Deluxe with the SITS Girls group are having a nice — a a Rafflecopter giveaway. The prize package includes a Clarisonic PLUSSonic Skin Cleansing System with charging cradle and brush heads, and trial sizes of gel cleanser and skin polish. The contest is VRY easy to enter — gotta love the SITS Girls — so click the link for more details.
So how are you coping with the new year? Do yourself a favor: take some time to savor the small moments. Talk a walk, sip some tea before a crackling fireplace, play a game or two and enjoy the little moments. It’s so worth it. 🙂
Solitaire Deluxe is an absolutely FREE download that you can “pick up and play” anywhere… even without an Internet connection.
Other fab features about the download? (1) It is 4.5-star rated app in iTunes and Google Play, (2) includes simple tutorials for all 16 games, and (3) makes it super easy to find friends using Facebook connect.
