FREE TO PLAY CHRISTMAS KLONDIKE SOLITAIRE, January 2023.
During the holiday season, we’re all staying at home, enjoying the snowy background and thinking about Santa and his presents. It’s cold outside, and we’re too busy being cozy and warm inside. In general, the Christmas spirit is everywhere, but it could get a bit boring sometimes. Thankfully Christmas games can come to the rescue!
Christmas Klondike is a Christmassy take on everyone’s favorite Solitaire game. Instead of playing on a gameboard, your cards are on top of a snowy backyard with a snowman. The cards themselves all have a Christmas theme too. The cards’ backs have a Christmas-colored background, and all cards’ fronts have Christmas-themed elements: polar bears, penguins, decorations, Christmas trees, you name it.
Challenge is the fun part
The Christmassy theme isn’t the only aspect that differentiates Christmas Klondike from most other versions of Klondike Solitaire. Christmas Klondike Solitaire is actually quite challenging and a good choice for more experienced players to hone their craft. Unlike most other Klondike games, Christmas Klondike Solitaire doesn’t have an Undo button. This means that if you make a mistake, or you’re not happy with your move, you’ll have to play around it regardless.
Another element that makes the game challenging is that there’s a points penalty. The game features a -8 points penalty every 30 seconds, so if you’re taking too long to make your moves, you’re decreasing your final score. You not only have to be good at the game, but you also have to be quick.
The goal of Christmas Klondike is to build your Foundations up with all the Christmas cards in Ascending order: from Ace to King.
