Wind Down W/ Solitaire.Org (Online Free Games)


I coincidentally found this webpage while searching for some web based games to play during a portion of my breeze down time, I went over a website named Solitaire.org. It has enormous selection of some cool and fun games to browse that are straightforward, simple to-work, and easy to use.

First game I played was Golf Solitaire


How To Play Golf Solitaire

The game features seven rows of cards. Thirty-five cards are laid out in five columns, face-up. 

The remaining cards are placed in a pile, or deck. The top card of the deck is placed face-up in a new pile, called a Talon. The object of the game is to get all cards into the Talon pile. 


You can move a card to the Talon if it is one number above or below the card showing on the Talon pile. You can't move the card if it is covered by another card. If you can't move a card, then you can turn-up another card from the deck and place it onto the Talon pile. 

The game is won when all cards are moved to the Talon pile. If the player is stuck and can't make another move, the game is lost. 


The game play is straight forward, smooth and easy game play with the option of sound playing some relaxing classic jazz piano playing in the background.

Game Scoring
Ten points for each card you clear from the tableau, for a maximum of 350 points. 
One hundred points for each card you have remaining in the draw pile when you complete the game, for a maximum of 1,600 points.
Bonus based on a quick game completion time.
This bonus is only granted if the game is completed in under 5 minutes.
The max time bonus is 300 & each second you play takes away from the time bonus.
If the game takes you over 5 minutes this score is set to zero rather than running into negative numbers.
If you beat the game (350 points) in a minute and 33 seconds (206 points) with 8 cards left in the draw pile (800 points) the total score would be 1,356 points.


Treasures of Atlantis

Another game I really like which had a retro feel was Treasures of Atlantis, it reminded me of a game I used to play during high school at the arcade called Bubbles.


How to Play
Swap 2 items to match 3 or more of the same items in a vertical column or horizontal row. Valid moves require you to complete a set of 3 or more.

This game has 25 levels and each level is timed.

The goal of the game is to get each part of a picture or map to the bottom of the level by removing the pieces underneath it by making matches.

As you advance through the game some pieces are locked in place. You can unlock them by using them to make a set of 3 or more in a row.

The left side of the screen offers sound control, music contorl, pause and full screen buttons.

The right side of the screen shows your current score, level, and remaining time.

If you lose any level of the game you start back at the first level on your next play.


The Last Game I tried out that I like as well was Play Pirates and Treasures a great game that keeps your mind, memory and focus up to par...

Pirates and Treasures


Scoring
This game has 8 levels which are timed. Your score on each level depends on how quickly you complete the puzzle.

Each object, number, and image outline item you find is worth 200 points, and each second you have remaining is worth 3 points.

Timing
The level timer is shared as a single countdown for all 3 portions of the level.

The first level starts with 10 minutes and each subsequent level is 30 seconds shorter than the prior level, with the final level being 5 minutes and 30 seconds.

Random click guesses are punished by removing 5 seconds for each click.

Level Structure
Levels contain 3 stages:

find ten objects in the picture matching the objects shown at the bottom of the screen
find the numbers one to thirty in the same level
find 8objects based on their outline
Each time you play a particular level the selected items and item order changes. At the bottom of the screen 9 items to find are shown for the hidden objects portion of the level. The hidden numbers portion of the level shows the numbers 1 to 30 and removes them as you find them. Then the bonus round shows you how many of the differences you found out of the 4 that exist.
