Day No: 143
Solitaire Day

Today we celebrate a card game that has been around for more than 200 years... Solitaire! 

For many of us, it was one of the first card games we played. The object of the game to stack the cards from low to high in each suit sounded so easy and yet could be so frustrating.

And for those who used Microsoft in the late 90’s, you might remember the card game was used as a way to improve mouse skills...but quickly became a great way to waste time at work! It’s reported that each year 33 billion games are played with over 3.2 trillion cards dealt. 

There’s no need to be particularly productive today - as your only requirement to celebrate the day is just to play!  How you play is up to you... on your computer, tablet, phone, or “go retro” and play using real cards.

Show us the way you like best!
