5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent game package for Kindle 2 October 17, 2010
I bought this game pack despite initial concerns about how well it would perform on my smaller screen Kindle 2. It is superb. The design team at EA has triumphed over the constraints of the Kindle format. The cards are easy to see, and the games are intuitively designed. Since I already know the rules of Klondike Solitaire and Freecell, I was able to start playing the games immediately, without the tutorial. There are a few ways to move the cards in play: using the 5-way toggle or keyboard shortcuts (love those). For example, in Freecell the columns of cards to be played are each assigned a letter of the alphabet; if you want to move a card from, say, column Q to column T, you just press "Q" on your keyboard and then press "T." There is a quick reference guide to keyboard shortcuts in the Controls menu. It is a pleasure to play something so well thought out. Bravo, EA! -- now, would you please create a MahJongg for Kindle?

4.0 out of 5 stars EA Solitaire Review October 15, 2010
Verified Purchase
Yeah!! I'm the first to review EA Solitaire!

I just bought this game today...Haven't yet played all 12 versions of Solitaire that the game boasts but I HAVE
played one (Klondike) and it is very easy to manipulate and move the cards. Very entertaining. The ONLY thing I wish they could improve on is that its somewhat difficult (due to the black and white e-ink display) to discern which cards are "red" or "white." But that is not EA's fault..just sometimes wish the Kindle was a color ereader...maybe someday in the future it will be.

I give this game **** stars!

5.0 out of 5 stars Kindle 2 Review of EA Solitare October 15, 2010
Verified Purchase
What a deal for 4 bucks. Easy to use. I used to play Freecell at work during my lunchbreak but then the "Inappropriate Use of Company Resources Even If On Break" Nazis (IUCREIOB-SS) took the game off our PCs.

But now (cue woman singing the Marseilles - no I did not mean 'marsupial' Google - ) a resounding blow for workplace Freecelldom has been struck!

Kindle Solitaire - the latest way to irk your anal retentive control freak pointed haired Boss. Buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Hand-Held Solitaire Ever! October 16, 2010
Verified Purchase
After owning this game just one day, I can safely say that there has never been a hand-held version of solitaire that matches up to EA's Kindle version. And if you are one of those people who love FREECELL, then you won't be disappointed! Any other portable version of Freecell I have ever tried has been somewhat lacking in ease of playability. Not so with this masterpiece! The Freecell game alone is worth more than the price of all twelve games.

I have already tried many of the games in this collection, and not one has let me down yet. If you enjoy solitaire, and you have a Kindle, you might as well throw your other portable solitaire games in the garbage. This one beats them all, hands down!

Now, if we could just get EA to produce a Kindle "Texas Hold-Em" game of equal quality.....

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Done! October 16, 2010
Verified Purchase
Thoroughly enjoyable. Within minutes, you are intuitively flipping cards around like the Solitaire so many of us grew to love on computers, cell phones, and, yes, REAL cards! Only things I can add to the other fine reviews here is that this worked (and looked) terrific on my Kindle DXG (9.7"). One quickly gets over the lack of "visuals" as far as black and red cards (shades of grey instead, of course). The software is gentle but firm if you accidentally try to play a "black" card on a "red" card. Love the feature to back-up a couple of plays now and then. Well Done, EA and Amazon!

3.0 out of 5 stars games are fun when they work December 4, 2010
Verified Purchase
I bought this for my kindle--the games are fun and it worked fine for a few weeks. Then it started to make the kindle reboot or lock up when I played it. Now I can't even load it--it locks up every time I try to load it. I noticed that its not being offered in the kindle store anymore---I wonder if that's why? Also, it would be nice to get a refund for something I can't use, and to get it removed from my kindle.

Okay. For those that give Kindle "games" low reviews, remember this important fact: The Kindle is NOT a gaming device. It's an e-reader, first and foremost. That being said...

EA has done a superb job programming Solitaire card games for the Kindle. Personally, I had zero trouble distinguishing among the red and black cards -- the suits are enlarged in the card center, and red is replaced with a light gray color. Cursor movement takes some getting used to, but -- admittedly -- I did not read the instructions prior to playing the game (was too excited to waste time between books).

Go figure. On an e-reader, I don't READ the rules. Silly, eh?

Not sure the product (only a few of the 12 games are ones I like and play) is worth the price, but come on... I've paid ten times as much for crappier games on actual gaming devices.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great games but keeps freezing and / or rebooting December 29, 2010
Verified Purchase
I would give the games 5 stars - so I wasn't sure if I should rate the game only 3 stars. I'm having so many problems while playing it, I'm certain that this game has a glitch or something.

First of all, the games are very fun. I love card games and it's very easy to manipulate and play. I don't think the colors are difficult to differentiate. I like the instructions, etc. The games are crisp and fun to play. I can easily get addicted to card games like this! At the holiday price, I'm still glad to have downloaded it.

However, each time I've played - and I've even tested it multiple times to make sure that it was the problem - it messes up my Kindle. I'll play a game or two and it'll freeze up, then usually start rebooting, sometimes multiple times. When it gets back on, my categories are empty or they're missing a bunch of books. I tried hard-booting it again two more times and my stuff has come back. However, it's still acting strange because if I try to pull a book out of the archives it doesn't end up on my home page at all. I'll go back to the archives and there it is again. I wonder if anyone else is having the same problem as I am?

If this problem disappears I'll gladly come back and give it a higher review. Otherwise, I can't say it's perfect when it's not.

It is OK but a little lame in card movement. Took a little bit to figure it out because instructions were vague.
