3 Peak Deluxe: This game makes the player think quickly to score the most points possible. The game is won by clearing the three "Peaks" by playing a card one value higher or lower than the exposed hole card. Touching the "Wild Card" takes the place of any card. Double Take: Double Take is all about clearing pairs of cards. Get more points by matching cards of the same value. To help clear the field, the player is also given the ability to match cards of the same suit regardless of face value. Suits are worth fewer points than pairs, so try to use your suits wisely to expose more pairs. Go Wild: Using a single 52-card deck, the player tries to get rid of all their cards by using three discard stacks. Players are given a choice of five cards at a time to place on top of any discards with the same suit or face value. Four 'Wild' cards are placed randomly in the deck to help if the player gets stuck. Phoenix 13: In this game, 13 is a lucky number. Select a combination of illuminated cards that add up to the sum of 13. Use the hole cards sparingly to make the highest score possible. Wild cards will bail you out when you're stuck. Power Cell: Power cell plays like a hyper version of Solitaire. Use the four "hold" cells up top in addition to the slots for each suit and clear all the cards off the board. Solitaire Classic: All the solitaire fun without having to shuffle! The game is played like a standard game of Solitaire. The less time it takes for you to finish, the higher the score you'll receive. Target 21: Target 21 is a new spin on the classic game of blackjack. The player uses the cards in the upper left corner to try and make each of the five columns total 21. If the player scores 104 or 105 in a round then they are awarded with a bonus round. Triple Elevens: The goal of Triple Elevens is to select a combination of illuminated cards that add up to the sum of 11. Use as many cards on your board as well as the exposed hole card. If you get stuck, you can touch the deck of cards to expose a new card, but the current hole card will move to the board. Uplift: Calling all Aces! The goal of Uplift is to get all four aces "lifted" to the top level. Remove cards of the same suit by touching the "lesser" of an exposed suited card.
