While solitaire is such a perfect card game that it never gets old, this variation manages to be interesting and engaging, too. Working in reverse, Destination Solitaire deals out a bunch of cards -- some face down, some face up -- and then gives you one to play with. If any of the dealt cards are one up or one down from the card you're playing, you can tap on it and make it the card you have to play next. In other words, if you're playing a 7 card, and there's either a 6 or an 8, you can tap them, regardless of their color or suit, and then you next have to play the 6 or 8 (this also may reveal the card below it). If you don't have a 6 or an 8, you then play the next card from the deck. You'll also sometimes take a card that will let you remove all the cards of that color that are face up from the dealt section. There are even times when, because you've cleared a bunch of the right cards in a row, you can get a bonus if you then clear a specific card before time runs out. Regardless, the objective remains the same: clearing all of the dealt cards before you run out of the ones in your deck. None of which makes this as effortlessly fun as normal solitaire, but as computerized card games go, Destination Solitaire is still an interesting and engaging take on a classic.
