Guess who established National Solitaire Day? Microsoft. Once they included it in Windows 3.0 (back in 1990 kids) it was used to train people how to use that new-fangled mouse on your desk. At least that was the excuse used. Now-a-days kids are coding at 5 years old which leaves us older folks in the digital dust.
Your assignment for this national day is to use a real deck of playing cards to play a tactile game of solitaire. Consider it homework you may actually enjoy, even if you no longer remember how to efficiently shuffle that deck. And be sure you’re playing with a full deck of 52 cards. I’ve been playing with less than full deck for many years and for some reason have never won a game of solitaire in all that time.
