Goal

The goal of Christmas Solitaire is like that of most solitaire games - clear the board and build up each suit in its foundation pile. In this single-player game, the player wins when all cards have been placed into their corresponding foundation piles.

Game layout

Christmas Solitaire uses a similar game board to regular klondike solitaire. Let's cover each of these areas in detail.

Gameplay

During the game, the player has to move cards around until all cards are placed into their foundation piles, wherein the game is won. All face-up cards can be played and moved across the tableau or into the foundation if the sequence and suit are right. Face-down cards cannot be played until they are turned over, i.e. when the card on top of them has been moved or played.

One by one, cards in the stock pile are turned over, revealed and placed onto the waste pile. Players can drag and place the card that is on top of the waste pile into any of the tableau piles if they are one rank lower than the card on the tableau, and in an alternate color. For example, a Four of Diamonds (red) can only be placed on top of a Five of Clubs (black) or a Five of Spades (black). In most scenarios, moving cards into the tableau is better than keeping them in the waste pile, as it is easier to access cards in the tableau.

Players can also move groups of cards to another tableau pile provided the move is valid. This is useful as it gives more opportunities to reveal face-down cards. However, do note that empty tableau spaces can only be filled with a King.

When a move is valid and doesn’t impact further gameplay, the game will automatically move cards into its foundation piles. For example, when an Ace of Hearts is turned face-up in the tableau, it will automatically be moved into the foundation pile for Hearts. This is particularly useful when playing against the clock - players must complete the level before the timer reaches zero or else the level will be failed!

Features

This version of Solitaire boasts Christmas-theme background music and various festive decorations, such as wintry game backgrounds and beautifully decorated card backs. Character playing cards, such as Jacks, Queens and Kings, are also adorned with festive pictures.

Another feature of Christmas Solitaire is the introduction of levels. The game becomes harder with each increase in level, with timers becoming shorter and less piles in the tableau on the higher levels.

The game is developed by Zygomatic. Christmas Solitaire belongs to the category of solitaire games.
