‘Flipflop Solitaire’ Review: Possibly the Most Relaxed Version of the Game

Flipflop Solitaire By: Zach Gage I've never been that into the original solitaire, especially when I have thousands of more exciting games in my pocket.

Onirim - Solitaire Card Game By: Asmodee Digital **Update: See my thoughts on the new Crossroads and Dead Ends expansion and scoring system.** A lot of board games have been making their way over to iOS lately.
