DOESN'T APPEAR TO BE TIMED
This game does NOT appear to be timed because when I look at the timer it's either empty or gradually filling as I'm clicking on matched pairs of numbers. I believe that the quicker you pair the cards and get the timer filled is what provides your ending tally at the conclusion of each level.
This is similar to majhong but uses playing cards of which you have to match pairs of numbers. This game also has a nice twist to it by having a slot machine that runs and you have to find either ALL the same suits or same card from the table splay of cards matching whatever is shown on said machine -- that IS definitely timed but you DON'T lose that level, just get less of a score due to whatever cards you may have missed.
This game might become frustrating as you REQUIRED to completely clear the board so make sure that you pick up cards that are lying atop as-yet unturned cards BEFORE clicking on those cards that are standing alone -- unless 1 card is a "stand alone" and the matching is atop other unturned cards.
An issue that I had was in missing the lower stacked cards towards my left; I had to replay a couple of levels due to the fact that I honestly never saw those cards to begin with until it was too late

Beautifully illustrated and great music. The card layouts are elaborate and challenging (and I am glad I don't have to deal them myself). I like playing different variations of solitaire. My only negative is that the story is unnecessary.

Relaxing solitaire game
Soothing music (to the point of this being the game I want to play just before bedtime), mahjonng-style cardplay, good graphics, and an appropriate storyline.
This is an excellent "wind down and relax" card game. There is nothing too difficult here, just match the cards as opposed to 1 up or 1 down. I was on the fence at first, but after spending some time with it, it's grown on me. If you want to mellow out with a card game, try this one.

Not too difficult
Easy game to play. Lets you start from where you left off when you run out of all your helps. Very good time filler. Played it once and got to Chapter 6 level 3 before I ran out of helps. Got this for the $2.99 price and was well worth it. Love that you can try the games before you buy them, has saved me from getting some games that look good but just don't interest me. I would recommend it.

Relaxing game for sure
I like the story behind the game, but the music puts me to sleep so I have to turn it off. Nice game, nice graphics.

a fun card game without a lot of thinking
It is good if you enjoy card games with a slight level of concentration.

Lovely Way to Spend Time
Cards are beautiful, story line nice. Just kind of addicting. Wish there were more than a few options for changing game. Purchased this and have enjoyed playing.

Only one hour demo for me
I did enjoy the game, for the most part, and the visuals and music were very well done, not at all annoying. I usually turn down music in all my games.
I think "solitaire" is misleading, as this game is only about matching pairs, in the one hour demo that I played. It was fun for the hour, but I am not going to buy it, nor would I even use a free game coupon on it. I'm into more solitaire, especially when there is a variety.
Having said that, you must try the demo cuz you may really like this game; check out all the positive reviews above!! I did not pay any attention to the story due to time issues #demo mode, don't you know?# so no clue about storyline.
What do you have to lose by trying the demo?

Shld have tried the Free trial
I purchased this quickly for $5 and is the only reason I'm not complaining more! - Story line is not necessary and I do not read it. I wanted a challenge. This game doesn't really have much thinking for me. I'm in the 2nd chapter and so far all I've done is match card #s.
A speed game came up and it took me a little while to figure out what I was suppose to do -even after directions. But still no brain thinking. Just finding certain card #s or card face.
I can't figure out why they call it solitaire - except that it is played with cards in different positions.
- Some of you will like this game BUT Please play the Free Trial First to find out for certain if this is the type game you want.

Sheesh!! Who wrote the tripey story??..."flushed delusions"?? Blech..
This is really not a solitaire game but a matching game which I guess can be entertaining, if you like that sort of monotony. The bonus rounds are slightly more fun but still not enough to merit forking out any kind of cash.
I was only looking at this game because it's the daily deal, and now I can see why.
Don't think so!
