Solitaire Arena review

Solitaire Arena"Solitaire Arena is a fun take on traditional Klondike Solitaire. The competitive element gives this normally rather sedate game a feeling of urgency and provides a welcome twist on an old classic. While it's not the most innovative game you'll see on Facebook, it is at least one that a lot of people will be able to pick up and play without having to learn new, complicated sets of rules – anyone who has used Windows has probably played Klondike Solitaire at one point or another."

Solitaire Blitz: fishing for chump change, catching chumps

Solitaire Blitz Chump Change"The rub is that I am supposed to spam my friends, whether they play or not, doing PopCap's marketing work for them – and I don't want to. I hate receiving notification spam, and even though I know that I am quite restrained in my use of social gaming, I feel embarrassed by it. It's begging, isn't it? Did the casual and mid-core industry simply forget we exist, in its bid to jump on the lucrative-looking social and micro-transaction gaming bubble?" [link]
