10 best solitaire games for Android
Solitaire is one of the classic card games. It’s around 300 years old if not older. The game has changed very little since its inception, but there are several variants, like FreeCell and TriPeaks. Luckily, it’s a relatively easy game to code. There are an absolute ton of solitaire options in the Google Play Store. As such, most of them aren’t very good. Only a few really stand out. Here are the best solitaire games for Android.
Best solitaire games for Android:
250+ Solitaire Collection
Price: Free / $2.99
250+ Solitaire Collection is a collection of solitaire games. It has the basic solitaire along with FreeCell, TriPeaks, Klondike, Canfield, Golf, Spider, Scorpion, and many others. The UI isn’t the best, but it’s highly funcitonal and reasonably easy to use. There isn’t much to complain about really. The controls are decent, it has every version of solitaire I’ve ever heard of, and it’s reasonably cheap. The free version contains ads and the full version removes them. It’s also free via Google Play Pass if you have it.
AI Factory Limited’s Solitaire
Price: Free / $3.49
AI Factory Limited is a developer on Google Play with a bunch of old school games like chess, checkers, hearts, spades, and, of course, solitaire. There is a free version with ads and a separate premium version without them. In terms of gameplay, it’s pretty decent. It’s the classic solitaire experience with some extra options. Those options include difficulty choices, three different scoring options, and whether you want one or three card draw. The game isn’t packed full of a ton of extras. It just executes the game in a pleasant manner. It’s also free on Google Play Pass.

Brainium Studios solitaire games
Price: Free / $4.99-$11.99
Brainium Studios is another developer on Google Play. This developer has three decent solitaire games. The first is your standard solitaire, the second is a FreeCell variant, and the third is a Spider variant. All three of them are pretty decent. Each one has a healthy selection of options like a difficulty mode and some customization options like one card or three card draw. The regular solitaire game even has a left handed mode. The FreeCell and Spider editions are notably less expensive than the regular, but otherwise all three games play pretty well.
CardShark is a collection of many, many card games. It includes a few different variants of solitaire along with things like gin rummy, poker, hearts, and others. This is actually a pretty decent deal for people who want more than just solitaire. Each game has a few options here and there. There is also an online guide you can access through the app. It won’t blow your mind, but you get dozens of card games for $2.99. The app hasn’t seen an update since 2019 so we hope the developer intends on updating it again soon. Otherwise, aside from some bugs, it’s pretty good.

Classic Solitaire Klondike
Classic Solitaire Klondike is the best free solitaire game that we could find. It has no in-app purchases, no ads, and no nonsense. It’s just your basic, classic solitaire. The game has some basic settings. You can switch from one to three card draw. undo and redo a move, and adjust the difficulty. That’s about it but do you really need anything else? It plays offline as well for those times when you’re stuck with no signal. It’s basic, but it’s serviceable and fun.
Microsoft Solitaire Collection
Price: Free / $1.99 per month / $9.99 per year
Microsoft Solitaire Collection is one of the most popular solitaire games on mobile. It’s a mobile port of the popular solitiare games from Microsoft Windows. This one has a ton of extras. It includes regular (Klondike) solitaire along with FreeCell, Spider, TriPeaks, and Pyramid. Each game has its own set of options to adjust things like difficulty. The game includes things like daily and weekly challenges and integration with Xbox Live profiles where you can earn actual Xbox achievements. It has a subscription price and we’re not fans of subscription prices for card games. However, you can play all the solitaire you want without it as long as you don’t mind some ads.

MobilityWare solitaire games
Price: Free / $1.99 per month / $9.99 per year with in-app purchases
MobilityWare is a developer on Google Play with a few decent solitaire games. The main solitaire game is pretty good. It has the usual stuff like one card and three card draw, but adds things like leaderboards and online competition. It’s a pleasant experience overall with the possible exception of the unskippable ads. The developer also has games for Spider, FreeCell, TriPeaks, Pyramid, and Castle variants of solitaire. The subscription is not great, but you can play the game for free with Google Play Pass if you have it.
Solitaire by Lezigame
Solitaire by Lezigame is another good and also free solitaire game. It has the basics like most of the solitaire games on this list. There isn’t much else to it, but some people don’t need a ton of bells and whistles. That said, the game has a few things like challenges and themes. However, other than that, it’s just a good, simple solitaire game. The ads can be a bit annoying and we wish there was a premium version for a couple of bucks. Otherwise, it’s one of the better free solitaire games.
Solitaire Free Pack
Price: Free / $9.99
Solitaire Free Pack isn’t technically a free pack since it has a price tag, but you can get all of it for free with ads. It boasts over 120 variants of solitaire, although most of them are just the basic versions with some fun mechanics. For instance, you can play regular Klondike solitaire with two decks of cards instead of just one. The game is a bit more difficult than most and it deters some players, but it’s an overall solid game with plenty of other ways to play solitaire. The ad-free version of it is a bit expensive, though, so only pay for it if you really, really like the game.

Yukon Gold Solitaire
Yukon Gold Solitaire is the last solitaire game on our list. It’s a mashup game like Solitaire Free Pack and 250+ Solitaire Collection. The game has a bunch of different variants of Solitiare, including Canfield, Klondike, Spider, TriPeaks, FreeCell, Golf, and many others. The game’s controls are a bit clunky at times, but I managed to complete a few games without too much of an issue. The game is reasonably cheap at $1.99 with no additional ads or in-app purchases, so it’s a good, cheap options for a lot of different solitaire variants.
