3.0.0.61 (See all)

“Great Escapes Solitaire Collection” game is a cards game to play alone, as you sure guess from its name, but it’s different from others games alike since it has twelve-in-one solitaire games which is great in order not to get bored any soon. If you like playing cards and you are alone at the moment, go ahead and try this game out to see if you like it. If you are asking yourself why to play cards on the computer instead of using real cards, there are several answers that come up to my mind. For example, if you are a laptop user, you can play during a trip or a waiting room without the need of carrying a deck with you.
So, let’s briefly describe the solitaire collection:
