Hello Fishies...I hope everyone had a blessed Christmas, and a beyond blessed 2016 Let me start by saying Im a Hidden Object/Adventure girl, but I do at times like a good solitaire game. As even big fans of solitaire know...just as in other genres..some can leave you a little underwhelmed. I got this game...demo unseen by using a free coupon that was about to expire and let me say this game does not let you down!! Its elves and magic and crystals to collect to help them rebuild their city which has been destroyed by an earthquake. After playing and collecting so many crystals you are able to restore one building or area. Its fun and engaging with lots of puzzle games and missions to accomplish that give you even more rewards. Some of the non solitaire puzzles are skippable. The colors and graphics are great, but what I really loved is the music. Its uplifting and appropiate, and moves up and down in crescendo depending on where you are in the game or how close you are to your goal. Give the demo a try...even if you dont have a coupon its well worth the price IMHO. Happy Gaming!

Thanks for the great review. I generally skip Solitaire games but after reading what you said....I'll give it a try. I have lots of coupons to use.

Thanks, mystine for recommending this card game. I, too, love hidden object games but when I need a break, I play card games. My favorite was Chronicles of Emmerland Solitaire but I think this will surpass Emmerland. I wish every one a joyous and prosperous New Year.

I did get this with a coupon. I like this type of solitaire much more than matching pairs.
It is pretty much the same as any of the others.
I am enjoying it, but have a couple of negative comments...

Although the game remembers which design you use for the front of the card - it does not remember what you like to use for the backs.

It seems a bit easy. When getting pieces for your magical items, it does not seem to matter how many cards you have left - you still get it. In fact you never have to reply a level. I liked it much better when you were allowed a maximum of 4 cards left or had to replay.

Also - I wish it kept track of how many cards were left on each level - so you knew you which ones to go back and replay.

I don't think this is anywhere near as good as Emerland. But I am not sorry I got it. Nice mindless play.

Rehashed but pleasant solitaire game.

After playing several solitaire games with a similar storyline I was underwhelmed. Give the demo a whirl & see for yourself it this game is a new/exciting adventure for you.

I actually don't mind this game - yes, somewhat mindless, but then it is only a solitaire game. If I don't get a "perfect" on each level, I will replay the level until I do. I always play in windowed mode, have no problems in either windowed or full screen. And since I have no new HOPA games to play (have been re-playing some older ones this past week) - hopefully there will be a new one tomorrow (Thursday !!)

anyway - graphics are really clear, I like the music and I just find it a quite relaxing way to spend an hour or so and I can come back to it whenever I feel the need for a few minutes of relaxation.

Best wishes from me in Canada to everyone for a very Happy and Healthy New Year. And for the 1st time in years, we are going out to celebrate and, alas, my poor Koko will have to spend NYE alone.

Happy News Years from CA.

I enjoy this game as well. Sometimes I replay levels to get perfects. Most of the time its not necessary to do so as far as I can tell it doesn't impact anything unless you didn't get all the crystals on a level. And the crystals possible are either 50 or 150 (if you get the 100 crystal card). So if your summary at the end of a round has 50 or 150 crystals on it. You don't need to play again.

My only grip with this is that you can't buy wild cards, and there some levels you just have to have them. So those yes I end up replaying some times many times before I either luck out and get a wild card or 2 or just the cards are good. These types of levels require combos of over 6. And if you have a combo of 9 or 10, you best have at least 2 wild cards.
