Now I have seen everything! A card game as a CE! I did a beta on this and cannot see how this is justified at all. The only difference is, that we see the gopher plotting underground on how to disrupt play
I WILL NOT pay CE price for one card game. Sorry BF.

What on earth could the extras be? Very bizarre intro video by the way.

Don't think I'm going to have a choice, the first is my husband's very favoritest ever game and not buying would be sacrilege!

Seriously? A CE for this type of game? I don't know what to say except - it's just another game I won't buy.

Happy Gaming and no offense intended,
Joy

Been waiting for this since I played it at the BigFish convention. My mother & I both loved the original game.

I remember that there was an optional hyperspeed play mode. Guess I'm about to find out....

Interesting...The trial is 120min instead of the usual 60.

Just so everyone knows, this one is not made by Gray Alien Games like the last one was, so different commentators & totally different graphics.

I wish we could disable the tutorial; people who know how to play shouldn't be forced to go through it.

I played "Fairway Solitaire" and loved it! I'm playing "Crime Solitaire" and loving it! Both are SEs, BTW. I'm having a tough time grasping anything that makes this one a CE--none of the add-ons that we're used to--just a promise of "Extras."

That said, it does look really enjoyable and entertaining, but I'm not sure about a CE price tag.

And I agree with cll1950 about the intro video--could just as well have been a commercial for some computer company (except in one of the shots, a lady has "Felix" perched next to her!)!

Regards, elldee

I'm a huge fan of golf and golf solitaire. But, I can't see paying CE prices for it. But when there's a CE sale, I'll get it.

Not a golf fan, so I may be just a bit confused but WTH is hyperspeed golf play?

Good morning, PeglegAnn...

I was thinking pretty much the same when I saw TGT. I was looking forward to Monday`s CE, and couldn`t believe it`s a card game. *sigh*

I only really like "Avalon Legends Solitaire" and "Faerie Solitaire" and own those 2 card games plus the new "Crime Solitaire", which is actually boring. LOL

Anyway, rather disappointed to see we get a card game for Monday`s game.

Happy day, everyone.

Ok, in trying to be fair. there are
Courses, there are 16 pages of courses - 9 on each. Can anyone tell me how many on the previous version?
Golf Shop, more items than before
Trophies, none before?
Records - not by any one I know
Movies, = short clips, from what I can see.
Fever - play against the clock.

Still not convinced that this should be sold this as a CE........................
Whatever you decide have a happy Sunday and have fun

I have an unreliable memory, but wasn't this a Big Sea game? I do have the old d/l version which I think was gifted to me and it's pretty fun.

Certainly might appeal to some "armchair duffers" however.

There are 70 courses in the original; quite a long game for the money, and good replay value.

This is one of my favorite card games too, but to me I think it would be sacrilege to blow money like that. We all have choices and if hubby isn't up yet, I would wait and ask him. This is NOT worth $13.99. These CE's like I have said in the past are becoming overrated, and some of these devs want the cut of the all mighty dollar.

Good morning Ann,

Totally agree. This is one of the reasons I stopped buying CE's 3 weeks ago. Some devs are getting to money hungry.

It doesn't matter to me who made the game, the bottom line is it still isn't worth $13.99.

Couldn't agree with you more MsFreddie. Like everyone else I was giving an opinion not whining. Like Ann said, this is the comments thread, and I was stating a comment.

This kind of game for me is well worth the CE tag and price. It has so much replayability and this new edition updates the graphics, keeps the fun and adds new dimensions to keep you on your toes. Love it.

Thank you for this.
If I remember, the last version (that I love) had both 9 holes or 18, this one only appears to have between 3 and 6, in the first few games anyway Not a golf course to me! LOL!

i don't know, I might like a CE of Farie Sol. with the story and all the cute little side aspects of the play.

Seems like i've been waiting for quite a while for the 2nd one.
