All it takes to play the old fashioned way is a deck of cards. The modern way to play solitaire only requires a download of Solitaire Legend.
Gameplay in Solitaire Legend is a matter of using the touch screen technology to drag and drop cards where they belong. When all of the cards are in four stacks, in their proper order according to suit, the player wins the game. The game gives users the option of a one or three card draw to play each game. If all the cards on the screen are laying in the proper order for stacking, a double tap will take care of it automatically, finish the game and offer hearty congratulations.
Users can choose from a supply of background themes or use their own photos to dress up the screen and personalize the look of the game.
