I have had the older version of the Radica Big Screen Solitaire, the blue one with the pointed bottom, for many years. Unfortunately I lost it, so I ordered this one. I am a solitaire maniac, having first played when I was 4 and couldn't shuffle the cards. I'm a lot older now. This is a good replacement for the old Radica Big Screen Solitaire. The only real difference is the appearance of the cards themselves, they are not the classic old design. But everything else, including the sounds, is the same. Once all the cards are out, it solves itself, and you don't have to push the buttons to conclude the obvious. There is a timed version, and it lights itself if it's too dark. It has a high score button. The screen is large, and easy to read. This version takes 2 AA batteries, as opposed to the 4 AAA batteries of the older version. This was a wise move for Radica, as the old version was a good, solid, enjoyable game, and this one is too. An insignificant drawback is that it is heavier than the older version.

If you get this game, you need to know how to turn off Vegas mode (switch to Klondike mode). The instructions don't tell you this and after trial and error I figured it out.

1. Hold down the New Game button for 2-3 seconds till it resets. At this point the "New Game" message will be flashing in the top of the screen.

2. Press New Game button again to toggle back and forth between Vegas mode and Klondike mode. This only works if you did the first step and have "New Game" flashing at the top of the screen.

My mom really enjoys this game, but there are a few quirks. The suit of all the cards uses a black light, which makes it easy to see. But in the top right corner where you stack the aces, the suit isn't in the black light. Instead, it is a faint gray color and you can barely read it. She has to tilt the screen around to catch the light perfectly to read which suit belongs with each card. I suggested that she put a piece of tape at the top of it and write the suits on it with a black pen. But after a couple days of tilting the game, she has the order memorized and it doesn't matter anymore. But it was definitely frustrating at first.

Radica makes the best handheld solitaire games. I have two of these, one for upstairs and the other for downstairs. I use both on a daily basis. I find these games very hard to put down. This particular handheld game has a larger display, it's easy to see and a backlight comes on when the sensor says it's getting a bit dark in the room. By the way, these games last and last........the batteries are replaceable and taken good care of, you will have these for years.

I love this game- It's getting old though and I was looking to replace it. I paid a cool $10 for mine and now it's $179?? I'm baffled, why so expensive? I don't love it THAT much.

3 Stars max. I need a magnifying glass to read the buttons names and that is not helpful. The screen has a glare problem causing me to have to adjust the way I am holding the unit as I play. The auto light feature helps eat your batteries and needs an on/off switch because it lights up at times when you do not need the light. Radica has been putting out sub par solitaire units for several years now and I sure can't figure out why. The programming for this unit is a little strange but I can get a win approximately every ten games. My high score is currently 745 with this unit.

Radica's two best units they produced are 1) Model 2320 and 2) the 'Metallic Blue big screen circa 2000' model. I have bought twenty of each and have one left of each model. Radica, I need a quality handheld electronic solitaire game again!!! I have played on average 20 games a day since 1997 when they Model 2320 came out.

All time high scores of 760 on 02/20/07 and 750 on 01/01/10 with the 'Metallic Blue big screen circa 2000' model. I am still playing it while my model 2320 is getting a long deserved rest.

I was looking for a hand held game for my mother that she could see with no trouble. You had it. She has trouble with her eyes and was having trouble seeing the other games. This one is great.

I have owned all the Radica solitaire games and this one is terrible. I hope it's just mine, but it's like it's set to lose all the time--VERY different from every other version. I have played this in Vegas mode for 6 months and have never gone over 1,100 points. I pick up one of the former games (sticky from overuse) and build up points right away. I don't get it...
The undo feature is new; nice if you want to "cheat" and see what is under 2 different cards when you have a chance. The auto play when you finally do win is handy. It's much heavier than any previous model and runs through batteries much quicker.
I've never written a review before for a product; I'm just frustrated.

My husband and I play many hand-held games. After losing a good solitaire game, I purchased this model. On this particular game, you almost never win. I don't expect to win every game, but one once in a while to make it worth playing would be nice. The game is a dust gatherer now because it is not fun.
