Simple Simon: part of the Spider Solitaire family of card games!

A new game has been added to Solitaire Collection Free, the 100% free collection that includes 9 challenging Solitaire games.

Simple Simon is a game of American origin and it's part of the Spider Solitaire๐Ÿ•ทfamily of card games.

To win this game, you have to remove all the cards from the Tableau to the Foundations, and this is obtained by building descending suit sequences from King to Ace. 

Being similar to Spider, you will be able to build down regardless on suit on the Tableau piles:

Build down, regardless of suit. For example, a 3 ♥ can be played on a 4 ♠♥♣♦. 

But to move a card sequence from on the pile to another, the sequence must be build down in suit:
Cards of the same suit and in a descending sequence may be moved as a unit
As soon as a suite is completed, the cards will be automatically removed from the tableau.

Game hint ๐Ÿ’ก
Preferably, build on the tableau in a descending suit sequence as opposed to a descending non–suit sequence.

How to play Pyramid Solitaire

Pyramid Solitaire is a classic solitaire game of French origin, also known as Egyptian Campaign or Pile of Twenty-Eight.
On the video we show the two different variations of Pyramid included in both Pyramid Solitaire for Windows 10 and Pyramid Solitaire (online version).
The first one is Pyramid Easy. The object of this game is to discard all the cards that form the Pyramid in pairs totaling thirteen.
To win this game you have to give preference in discarding the Pyramid's cards, and it can be won even if you have some cards left on the Stock pile.
The second variation of the game is Pyramid, and it's a little bit more difficult because to win, you have to discard all the cards from the Pyramid AND the Stock pile.
Strategy tip: be careful not to block plays by leaving cards at the top of the pyramid that can be matched!
You can get ๐Ÿ‘‰Pyramid Solitaire from the Microsoft Store or you can play Pyramid Solitaire๐Ÿ‘ˆ online, on any computer or device!
