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.....

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!

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.

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.

Updated Review--

Below is my original review but here's an update. I talked with Kindle Customer Service today on the phone, told the problem, that the game worked very well with my Touch but doesn't work at all with my new Paperwhite. The rep was very helpful and polite, and refunded the purchase price of the game even though I'd bought it a long time ago. Wow, that is good service!

For those of you with a Touch, EA Solitaire is a great game. I never had problems distinguishing cards with the black and white screen. It takes a little getting used to, but after awhile I didn't notice the color issue. You can move one card easily or a whole stack. Its a great game for killing time when you don't feel like reading but just need something to do, like waiting in a doctor's office. I highly recommend this game for the Touch.

Original Review--

I loved this game for my Kindle Touch. It worked very well on the Touch. I just "upgraded" to the Paperwhite so I could see the screen indoors easier. How disappointing that EA Solitaire is not compatible with my Paperwhite. I had wrongly assumed everything that works on the Touch would also work on the Paperwhite, thinking they were both E-ink devices. I wish Kindle made it easier to figure out which active content games and apps worked on which Kindle devices.

I bought this game in late December and played it a number of times on my new Kindle Touch before I started experiencing problems. Touch response became slower and less reliable, making it more and more difficult to play at a reasonable speed. This game also used a lot of battery power - more than using wifi for a comparable period of time. Then I noticed that page turns during reading were also slowing down and searches, highlighting, etc. also slowed way down. Finally the game got hung-up initializing and would not load. I decided to take the game off my Kindle. This didn't fix the slow page turns and very slow searches, so I reset the Kindle (holding the power button in for 20 seconds until the reset screen appeared) and it now works without problems.

Although I bought this at a reduced price (promoted in an email from Amazon), I am disappointed that Amazon is actively marketing a game that can negatively affect the performance of Kindle devices. I'm a long-time Kindle owner (bought my K1 in December 2007) and have been very pleased with the hardware performance. I'm glad that removing the game and resetting it resolved the problem, but I'll be staying away from any more active content.
