Fairway ? Collector's Edition
Can't Stop Playing!
I?ve played many variations of ?quest? solitaire games, and for me, Fairway Collector?s Edition is hands down the best!
This game is similar in play to ?Faerie Solitaire? but it centers around a golf theme, so if you know a bit about golf, the way this game tallies your score will make immediate sense and it will hook you ? even if you don?t know anything about golf, you?ll pick up the idea pretty quick.
You earn a number of stars depending on how well you fare on each ?course?, which is made up of a series of card layouts (or ?holes?), and you can go back and try to improve your score for a particular course (of which there are tons). Holes can have different challenges, like ?water? and ?sand? hazards, adding a good amount of variety and interest to the game. The courses come in different sizes, from 3 to 9 holes, so you can play for a few minutes or for long stretches. You can even save your progress on the current course. These aspects greatly increase the replay value of Fairway.
Players also earn Golf Bucks which can be spent at the Pro Shop for items that make the game easier to play, but you can choose to soldier on without any of these tweaks. Really cool.
I love the artwork design of this game, and it looks awesome in full screen mode. You can change the faces and backs of the playing cards.
The game even includes ?Fairway Fever,? which adds a timed element, if you?re into that.
The humor in the commentary can get a little grating if you play for really long stretches, but you can always mute this if you wish.
The more I play this game, the more I appreciate the thought that went into its design ? and it?s just a blast to play! Many thanks, Big Fish Games!!!

Relaxing round of golf!
I love this new version of fairway solitaire. It is more fun than the first one and has more options and different setups on the cards. Very relaxing even with the challenges, helps me fall asleep each night.

Love This Game!
This has to be the card game of the year. It's great fun, even for someone who has no knowledge of (or interest in) golf. It's challenging without being impossible. Love it - more please.

This is a phenomenal game, and I would love to buy this one just like I did the previous version; however, I find it to be just a little too expensive. If the price was dropped a bit, there would be no doubt in my mind that this game would be worth every penny!

I like the announcers as they are very much like real announcers on a real golf course and it sets the atmosphere!
I tried it as soon as I saw the new one and now I don't even want to play the old one!9course BF was giving it away so nothing lost) But there is no comparison this is one excellent game!
