Classic solitaire game on your Palm

I play cards with some seriously lucky people. As a result, I prefer to play on my own and have always liked the game of solitaire. Again though, because I have about as much luck as a turkey at Christmas I still end up losing most of the time.

This is why I'm so drawn to Freecell, because this version of solitaire relies much more on skill than just the cards you happen to get dealt.

The object of Freecell is to move all the cards to the home cells, using the free cells as placeholders. Because all the cards are visible from the start everything is based around strategy and your ability to manipulate the cards in your favour.

The game is perfect for playing on your handheld because each round doesn't take too much time and it's a good workout for your brain while you're sat on the bus.

This version for Palm is executed fairly well, and includes a couple of useful tools in the shape of a Hints option and the ability to undo a move.

However, there's nothing too special in the way of extra features. It would've been nice to be able to customise the game board or choose some music and sound effects to accompany your movements.

Ultimately though, Freecell is a highly addictive pastime and its strategy element ensures that you're not always relying on the luck of the draw to get you through.

Freecell is one of the most popular solitaire games, which is included in Windows. It's fun and even addictive. Because all cards are visible at the start of the game, it is almost entirely a game of strategy and skill.
