If someone asks me what card game I know and enjoy playing? I think the first thing that would come to mind is Solitaire. I remembered very well during the early versions of the computer where the game Solitaire was already installed in the system, and once you completed it, the cards jumped around the screen. Those were the days, and that was fun. Playing Solitaire might seem difficult when you look at it, but you will realize that it was easy once you start playing it.
At present, you will find so many apps and websites where you can play this game, and since I was missing the old days, I decided to browse on the internet and found this website, Solitaire.Org.
The website is very easy to navigate—no log-in or membership is required to play the game. Once you enter the website, you can immediately play the game. And aside from the classic Solitaire, you can also find different solitaire games, each having different sets of rules should you wish for a little bit more challenge in the game.
But did you also know that playing the game solitaire has more benefits than just having fun? Yes, you read it right!
Personally, playing solitaire keeps me focused. Because your primary goal is to arrange and stack the cards based on the rules of the games, and once you start arranging it, your mind starts to focus on what to do next. Aside from that, this also calms my mind since this is not a competition game. Instead, it’s more on a chill side. And once you start the game, it isn’t easy to stop.
In addition, this keeps me out of boredom. Since there were days when days that I didn’t do anything at home. So I grabbed my tablet and went to Solitaire.org and spent 30 minutes or an hour relaxing. Just remember that it is important that we limit ourselves to playing too many games. This can be addictive so setting a schedule when to play is always a good idea.
Next, this game can help you in decision-making. Since this is a strategic game, this will definitely will help you construct your thoughts and focus and decide which card to put on the deck. So when playing this, it’s also training your mind just like in any other card game to make wise decisions. And, as we grow older, this skill will be in full use.
So here are the things that I could think of that I believed Solitaire could give us. It’s so nice that I could go back and play the game again. It brings me good childhood memories, and I felt like it somehow exercised my brain as well.
So, if you want to give it a try, call on your friends and families and try playing it together. Because aside from fun, don’t you think this can also strengthen the bond you have with your loved one?
