How the developer managed to turn a simple concept--playing football through the power of solitaire--into a game I've already invested 11+ hours into is beyond me. All I know is that Gridiron Solitaire WORKS, pure and simple.

I'd highly recommend the game and supporting the developer. Can't wait to see what comes next!

This is a card solitaire game in which matching cards allows your offense or defense to do their job in the game. Match enough and you'll have the forward motion you need for a first down on offense. On defense, you'll stop the opposing player's advance.

Having to draw a card carries the possibility of a "Big Play", a short text event that can end the play or change it significantly. And it might not end in your favor! Your draws are unlimited on offense, with a high possibility of a Big Play, but on defense you have a limited number, with a lower possibility of the play ending suddenly. This makes for an interesting dynamic, with poor play leading to even good defenses collapsing. The mechanic forces you to allow your opponent some gains, and hopefully you can hold them to less than they need for a first down without drawing.

Another mechanic has you attempting to guess your opponent's play call (run or pass, it's not complicated) before each play. Each team has stats for running, passing, special teams and the like, so you can predict somewhat how they will play. If you guess correctly, you get an extra card slot for the play, which is a big advantage.

Teams are tracked through a season and rated relative to each other. Don't pick a weak team hoping to play it up, at least not to start with. That's a sure path to disappointment.

There are three difficulty levels, which affect the basic yard totals for plays based on your play guessing, and this is a solitaire game, so no multiplayer.

The football mechanics are notional - you need forty yards to complete a first down. Why? Because this helps shorten the game so that a hand of solitaire is not an hour long. :-) There are still halves and quarters, and punts and field goal attempts.

This is a fun game of football and cards, enjoyable whether you understand football or not. Buy it! You'll like it.

I was very conflicted buying this game since I love American football but hate solitaire. Luckily, this game actually manages to capture the feel of football in a way I honestly didn't expect. This game is definitely well worth the money.

I have only played 8 games or so thus far, but I am really really enjoying it. Who knew that solitaire could be so engaging. I love the football theme. While I loved Fairway Solitaire, I think this is even better. Without even noticing, I burned through two hours of fun. It definitely benefits from the "one more game" syndrome.

What a wonderful game!

An incredibly fun solitaire game with a cool sports slant. The "Big Play" button is a huge gamble that draws me in every time and there's definite tension as the random text events are "revealed". I'm impressed by how the game captures the back-and-forth feel of football. I just had a terrific come-from-behind victory early in my league career that I felt like I really earned.

That's right. Earning it. Tension. Back-and-forth.... in a solitaire game. Not a bad accomplishment.

I was skeptical of a solitaire game that claimed the feel of American football, but this game delivers. Great fun!

I thought I'd share a summary of my full review here.

I didn't really have any expectations going into Gridiron Solitaire. I knew a little about it, but none of the details. For such an abstract representation of football, it does a great job at capturing the flavor. This is one of the more enjoyable games I've played for a game with such simple mechanics. While I thought the matching mechanics were too simplistic, managing the Big Plays was great fun. I was getting excited both when things did and didn't work out for me. Bill Harris included so many little touches that just tickled my shoulder pads - not the hideous 1980s women's shoulder pads, but the cool football ones.

Mr. Harris does have plans to continue to improve the game, but I don't have any details about what may be included in the updates.

If you sometimes like to relax with a more casual game and don't mind games with a good chunk of luck, consider purchasing Gridiron Football.

Gridiron Solitaire does a great job of emulating the rhythms of the game -- the push and pull, the big plays that are alternately exhilarating and heartbreaking. It also plays very well on a touchscreen.

I cannot recommend this game enough. It somehow manages to capture the essence of a great football game in a solitaire card game package. Besides the great gameplay at a great price, the story of how Bill Harris developed this game from no knowledge to the finished product is well woth supporting.

First impressions:

Gridiron Solitaire. How do I even begin to describe such a game? It took me quite some time to grasp just the bare basics of the game. The game is a bit difficult to explain, so please bear with me.

The game essentially combines solitaire and football. Yes, that sounds a bit strange, but it surprisingly works, no idea how the devs managed to pull that off, but props to them for doing so. Basically, you have to match cards (against the opposing team) in order to get the offense/defense to do their thing.

There's also a "Big Play" mechanic, in which you're able to draw a card during your turn, placing another card onto the field. This mechanic can tremendously change the outcome of a play, in either your own favor, or the opposing side's favor. When playing offense, you can use as many Big Plays as you wish, but you only have a limited number when using them as the defense.

The game has three difficulties to choose from. I went with the normal difficulty, which may have been a bad idea for a complete noob to the game. The game also goes deep into team customization and rankings. The teams are tracked per season and compared against each other for that specific season.

For someone who does not care for football, I thought I had figured out the game just fine during my play session. I'd recommend it only to those willing to learn how to play it, as it's quite difficult to understand going into it.

Absolutely fantastic. Casual in nature sure but utterly beguiling and one of those games that insist you play another game at 2 in the morning.

Very well developed by a guy committed to developing the game for years to come, this game is one of those very rare pieces of software that can be described as worth more money than is actually being asked for.

Get it now.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Gridiron Solitaire and I cannot recommend it enough. It was slightly difficult adapting to the rules of the game but once learned It is a very entertaining game. If anyone wants to see a Let's Look at style video of the game in action then here you go:

This was one of my favorite games, until they improved it. They improved the improvement. I am back to loving this game. Sorry it took so long to get back. I play at least twice a day. Great game, great price.

Needed to +1 this game for a while. I enjoyed it at release but the most recent patch I think has hit the nail on the head for balance. I love cards and the strategy involved with the football element is very fun and keeps you playing. Dev is constantly on the look out for any ideas or fixes. Price may seem high for what appears to be a simple card game but it really is worth the price for the effort put into it.

This is a great game if you like playing fantasy football and want to kill some time. You don't need to spend a lot of time on individual sessions, but it helps in the long run. I'm interested how the game will progress as you go through the off season mode. This seems like a game I will enjoy during the football offseason.

Coming into this game, I thought that it would be hard for a football game that abstracted out the football part out into a card-based gameplay loop. I still think that, but Gridiron Solitaire works completely. This, along with games like Civ V and OOTP, give me that "just one more turn" mentality, running a play, to a quarter, to a half, to a game, to 10 games, to finishing a season. Incredibly addicting, and surprisingly fun. Definitely a must try.

I've been waiting to play this game for a LONG time and have followed the development since it was announced. The lead designer turned me onto Fairway Solitaire long ago, and that became a favorite of mine. I'm about three hours into Gridiron Solitaire now and I'm not disappointed. I think the most interesting thing to me is the uncanny way that this card game feels like football. Something about the rhythm of it feels right. I would not have believed that I could feel a sense of tension while playing solitaire, but when I used my last defensive Big Play of the game and saw the computer drive to the end zone in disturbingly short order, I started to panic that my 14 point lead might not be enough. It was a squeaker, for sure!

I recommend this game - a great little indie title that knows exactly what it wants to be.

The gameplay of Gridiron Solitaire consists of linking cards that are opposite color and one number apart. At its core, it's a basic solitaire game. However, the strategy elements and the uniqueness of each game/puzzle brings a surprising level of depth. The Big Play feature adds a surprising level of excitement and strategy.

I was disappointed with the off-season portion of the game. The game punishes you for doing well the previous season. That part of the game just misses the mark for me.

I'd been looking for a game I could mindlessly veg out on to appease my need for stimulant while I'm doing tedious tasks such as taxes, paperwork, or when I want to play a game that I don't have to get invested in to enjoy. This one really delivers.
