The games are not in the App Store. These are Web Games that you play in a browser. Simply open a browser of your choice on your iPad (or other mobile device) and navigate to SolitaireNetwork.com and start playing just as you would on a computer.
Game Settings are preferences that you can set that apply to all games, and persist from one session to the next. (You must have cookies enabled to use this feature in a persistant way.)
Game Settings are available at the top of each game on the right side of the game:
Winnable Shuffles are shuffles guaranteed to be solvable. Solitaire Network has been collecting the results from real players for years and when a player wins a random shuffle, the random seed is stored in a database. When you play a Winnable Shuffle, one of those seeds are obtained at random and the deck is ordered exactly as it was when the previous player won the game with it.
To play the games with the best clarity, be sure your browser is set to 100% zoom level.
When the browser is scaled larger the cards may appear fuzzy. The scaled cards may be an acceptable compromise for players that may need the larger size. You can try each of the three decks to see if one of them is acceptable.
Solitaire Network will soon be expanding to provide Mahjong games! There is no firm date yet for an official release, but you can play a pre-release version of the game here. Beyond Mahjong, Solitaire Network hopes to add other types of original games, and of course, more Solitaire games.
The ads on Solitaire Network will generally be placed as one ad above the game and one ad to the side of a game, at a sufficient distance so that you will not accidentally click on them while playing the games. Also, there may be one ad lower down on the page. The ads will not automatically play sounds, and they should not cover any content.
We can assure you that Solitaire Network does not serve any ad that pops up a new browser window or that opens a new tab within your browser. If you are seeing ads like this, or many ads that overlay the content of the site, then those ads are originating from another source and NOT from Solitaire Network. Sometimes, there are browser add-ons or other malicious software that may be installed on your computer that are putting ads over our content. If that is happening to you then go into your browser settings and disable add-ons until you find what program is serving those ads.
You can also download and run anti-malware software such as AdAware and MalwareBytes which will help find problems such as these. These are reliable and trusted products that we've used for years and we highly recommend them. They both have free versions.
We are serious when we say "NO GIMMICKS". You won't see something pop up when you are really just trying to close the browser. We won't make you jump through hoops to play our games. You do not need to sign up or install anything to play. You can go right into any game and literally be playing in about 10 seconds.
The most important thing you can do is to visit often!

On a more serious note, we'd really appreciate it if while on SolitaireNetwork.com you would whitelist us in any ad-blocking software you may be running. We are trying our best to be responsible ad publishers. Thanks!
