Videogames are something that I already blogged about.
If you have been following me for a while now, you know that I am a big fan of Yoshi, the green dragon who helps the world-famous videogame star Mario in his adventures.
But just like the 99% of the world population, I enjoy from time to time taking a break from work by grabbing a cup of coffee or tea and play a solitaire match against my computer.
What is Solitaire?
For those people unaware of what Solitaire is, I will take a minute to explain it to you.
Wikipedia says that Solitaire is any tabletop game which one can play by oneself, usually with cards, but also with dominoes.
The term “solitaire” is also used for single-player games of concentration and skill using a set layout of tiles, pegs, or stones. These games include peg solitaire and mahjong solitaire. The game is most often played by one person but can incorporate others.
In the collective imagery, Solitaire is the game where you have a pile of cards.
Some are in front of you, and you have to make a descendant one-red-one-black line of cards until you finish all the cards available.
I honestly can’t remember the first time I played with the popular mind-game.
But I have memories of doing so on my dad’s laptop back in the mid-nineties, and since then, I grew quite a love for this card game.
One of my favorite websites where to play Solitaire is the website Solitaire.org.
I saved it on my shortcuts on my Google home page, and to start playing with it, I click on it, and Solitaire.org starts a match right away.
It shows you the points, time, and option to restart the game.
I use it also to play matches against my partner and play one move each, and it can be challenging to play in this way!
Try to find these objects!
Among the games that I love to play with, there are also the click-and-point adventures where you have to find objects to pass the level.
They absorb me right away, and they are the modern version of finding the differences that we used to play in the newspapers.
It takes time, and though you have the chance to use a few hints to find those objects that you can’t see, I always try to avoid using them to reach the top points I can get from that level.
Of these games, my favorite is The Palace Hotel with its decadent and vintage theme, but also Hidden Kitchen because of the culinary theme.
Between The Palace Hotel and Hidden Kitchen, I find more way more difficult the second one.
As you can see from the screenshots I took from my screen while playing, Hidden Kitchen starts right away with a high level of difficulty.
I have to be honest with you: it takes me several minutes to finish one level.
Being in a kitchen, most of the objects are in grey tones, and so are the furniture and kitchen appliances.
Finding something grey on a metal greyish background requires quite an eagle eye.
And I use the hints a lot with Hidden Kitchen.
But hey, you should try this game, and you will totally understand me!
Therefore, I mostly play those with a more vintage vibe.
This website has a wide selection of mind games and solitaire games that can help you relax while having fun.
And the best part is that they don’t use annoying ads.
I hate when I am playing a video game and every fifteen seconds it gets interrupted by ads.
I would love for you to try some, and let me know which one you prefer to see how many of my readers match my tastes!
