This is a pretty nifty solitaire game, it is wrapped in a visual novel shell, and has a basic storyline, and some fairly attractive art both in the VN section, and in the solitaire card game section. You advance the story, and collect special items for the storyline by making combos or fulfilling other side objectives. It is simpler in mechanics than Faerie Solitaire, but has the advantage of seeming like it offers an additional layer of polish.

Charming little solitaire game with some extra tricks and Jane Austen flair

This game was made by just 2 people and there's no denying they are huge fans of the Jane Austen novels. The scenery, themes, characters and dialog feel like they're straight out of Pride & Prejudice or Mansfield Park, down to the use of the word "beau" (for a good looking bachelor).

I hadn't played solitaire before, but it's easy to pick up with this game and there's some tricks which you can unlock such as being able to take away the top card of a stack taking a peek at what's below the top card of your deck. The animations, backgrounds and portraits are done well. Can't say much about the music because I mostly listened to my own during my playthrough but the little I heard sounded very fitting.

My biggest complaint with the game is that each stage simply takes too long. Playing 5 instead of 10 rounds at each stage would have kept the experience less monotonous. The objectives don't really help here since they are mostly stuff that you'll be doing anyways and complement each other. I had also purchased all the upgrades and was floating lots of gold near the end. As you can see I spend around 9 hours completing the story line, but doing so in 4 would have felt less tiring.

My other complaint is that the story is too much straight forward in the sense that there isn't really any internal struggle for any of the characters. Bella's (main character) friends and relatives even encourage her to engage with the right guy. I disliked the puny and descriptive names like "Mr Bleakly". The idea of gathering accessoires to furnish up your room fits very well thematically though.

Fortunately the game doesn't fall into the trap of having the story make up all kind of excuses to play solitaire. It would have been really lame if every other scenario was along the lines of "Fine, you'll get to have your ball on our premises, *but only if you can handle 5 perfect rounds of solitaire". Instead the devs wisely decided to separate gameplay and story in this point.

All in all a pleasant experience. As long as you know what you're going into you should be fine. If you've never read Jane Austen than all the references will be mostly lost on you. Watch a video of some gameplay if you're undecided as of yet.

I was pleasantly surprised by this game-- I loved it!! Levels were fun, beautiful art, great powerup mechanics, challenge felt just right, and definitely got my money's worth in time played and achievements. And it very much appealed to the Austen lover in me. :) Thanks so much for a lovely game!

Regency Solitaire is a totally charming take on the single-player card game by Grey Alien Games. A variation on the golf solitaire play style, this fast-paced version of the classic game will have you addicted before you can say "tea and biscuits!"

Golf solitaire involves playing cards in ascending or descending order until all have been removed from the board. There's a bit more to it than that, but it's a very easy to learn version of the game that will appeal to those looking for a more relaxing experience. While there is indeed some thought needed in play, once you get the hang of things you'll be a solitaire pro in no time.

The game is divided into 20 chapters in which you have between 3 and 10 tableaus (boards) to complete a set of objectives. These objectives get progressively harder with each chapter, but are never unfair in their requirements. As you successfully complete each tableau, you'll earn money to purchase power-ups that will help you clear cards much easier. You may also bank up to 11 wild cards which can be used to extend combos. Chaining combos is the meat of the game play as bigger chains increase your score multiplier, thus rewarding even more money at the end of each chapter. Of course, luck will play a factor in the draw, with particularly bad layouts often requiring several retries if you don't have enough power-ups or wild cards to get through them. But that comes with the territory in solitaire. At least there are ways to overcome it here.

While there are several different versions of solitaire out there, this is the first Regency era themed game I have come across, and it's absolutely charming. Everything in the presentation has an air of gentility to it, from the beautiful hand-painted artwork to the elegant music and charming character dialogue. The simple yet enjoyable story that plays out between each chapter feels as if it was pulled right from a Jane Austen novel, which is a compliment in its own right. Altogether, it's a pleasant experience that will transport you to early 1800's England when elegance and sophistication was prized above all else.

If you are a fan of solitaire, I cannot recommend Regency Solitaire enough. Between the enjoyable game play, amusing story and lovely presentation, there's very little I can complain about here. I only wish it were a bit longer, as playing through Bella's tale of courtship was an absolute joy that didn't last nearly as long as I'd have liked.

Bottom Line: Recommended to all solitaire and casual gaming fans.

It's like if Jane Austen made Faerie Solitaire.

Set during the Regency era in the UK, you play solitaire through a romance story set in sumptuous manors in the English countryside. The solitaire is solid, and there are lots of obstacles and power-ups to keep the game fresh as you progress through the story. Winning hands earns you cash as you progress through the game, allowing you to decorate your manor for a fancy ball. Each of the items you purchase can be used to remove cards, speed up wild card appearance, etc. With a hard and easy mode and lots of twists to the standard solitaire game, Regency Solitaire is pretty challenging and hard to stop playing.

The art is pretty and fits the setting well, but I wish the game supported higher resolutions.

Basically, if you enjoyed Faerie Solitaire, this offers a very similar experience with a very different theme.

When the black sheep of the family gambles away all of the family's estate, the entire family is at risk....of being slightly less wealthy? Will Bella be able to reclaim enough of the family's fortune during back alley solitaire money matches to marry the man of her dreams?

The trappings around this game are definitely unique, original and just silly enough to put a compelling narrative behind a series of solitaire games. The balance of power ups, combo bonuses and special actions keeps the experience fresh and worth playing.

I have accidentally played this game for nearly 100 hours of my life. I have no regrets I was sick, I had no voice and I was dying inside. BUT this game proved to be a mega great time-waster and to be honest was really enjoyable to mindlessly run through. Not gonna lie, I payed no attention to the story (which is probably boring af) but the game itself is actually really good and on hard the later levels prove to be somewhat of a challenge.

story and style was not really my cup of tea, but the game itself is fun and addicting. it is the dazzling story part I just cannot stand. I do not like visual novels and found it too boring to read all. to be fair there is skip story button to get past those conversations. I had fun playing it, but only for the core gameplay that I could have gotten from any solitaire, so I cannot give my recommendation. 2dazzling4me
