If you enjoy solitaire games, Faerie Solitaire is a fresh little twist on the formula and an incredibly addictive little time-spnner. I love the randomness of the game, compared to traditional solitaire, and the objectives change things up from hand to hand as well.

I'm not a huge fan of the theme, honestly, I think the artwork and story is a little trite and the voice acting is downright cringeworthy. Some of the upgrade perks can be nice but the pets are pretty useless. I also wish I could change the aspect ratio or at least resize the window since I play in windowed mode usually.

The game itself, however, keeps me playing for just one more hand. Or 20 more hands. Or hey when did it get so late is it really 1 am?

It might also be the hunt for that last egg, which after nearly 50 hours and 4-5 complete playthroughs still will not drop. (Achievement hunters, beware!)

As a Solitaire variant, Faerie Solitaire is fairly competent. Most notably, the game measures succeeding enough to progress in ways other than simply clearing all the cards on the stage - points, combos, etc, which makes the game different from most solitaire games that have binary success/failure states, and often very difficult ones. While the plot and narration of Faerie Solitaire are pretty poor, they can be skipped.

Can be addictive to keep playing, sadly unlockables/collectables are nearly useless to the gameplay.

This is basically an upgrade for windows solitaire, but for some reason I find myself going back to it quite alot. I don't know why. I guess its because its a good background activity whilst working/watching/reading/waiting. Plenty of little things additions to basic solitaire like upgrades, challeneges and unlockables.

I think I'm just trying to justify myself playing a game called 'faerie solitaire' for such a long time.

Out of 10 I'd say it is passably enjoyable.

People mock this game and I find that to be a damn shame. Yeah, okay - the storyline is you need to free the fairies and stock up on logs and rocks so you can upgrade your (utterly useless, literally do nothing at all) pets like the Unicorn and the Chimera but the fact is, the game - a spin on spider solitaire - is indeed enjoyable and quite addicting. This is my go-to game for relaxing at the end of a long day, needing some mindless repetition to keep my mind nice and still while I work through the days events. Perfect for a bit of quiet time before bed, when you want to be occupied but not over-stimulated.

Solid 4/5, if you're a fan of Solitaire games.

Its a card game with a little twist. Ultimately, its addictive as hell. You'll keep putting hours into it without even realizing it. Overall, its a cheap way to have some fun while doing something else like watching a football game, etc.

I don't actually remember how I got this game. I know I didn't pay $10 for it; in fact, I'm pretty sure I got it for free. In any case, It's fairly entertaining.

It's easy to learn how to play Faerie Solitaire, which makes this game great for kids. I could see parents using this game to teach young children the basics of solitaire games before the child is ready for more challenging card games. There are also harder settings for more advanced players.

The story mode is okay but could be described as mostly background fluff. Your enjoyment will suffer only slightly if you decide not to pay attention. Again, it's something that would probably hold the attention of children pretty well. Overall, the story art, voice acting, and writing are reasonable for an indie game and you can tell the development team put a solid amount of effort into Faerie Solitaire.

This game has a serious lack of options and customizability. There aren't graphics options for this game, there is graphics option. A single switch labelled "high" and "low." So if you're hoping to change the game's resolution (like I was) or even turn off the card animations, you're out of luck. I also would have liked to see an option to change what the cards look like. Personally, I prefer how cards normally look as opposed to the cartoon-ish design the developers decided on.

I'd recommend it to my young nieces and nephews, as well as my mother.

I got this just to make fun of someone who I kept seeing play this, and it changed my life forever. Make sure you have a top-of-the-line P.C. to run this beast, it will push your box to the outer limits. Can't wait to play the HD Remake in 4K resolution.

The plot is some weird hugbox-y fantasy thing where you must save fairies somehow by playing solitaire. That old chestnut. But think about it: Windows comes pre-installed with solitaire usually so they have some nerve to charge people for this. They even spell it " Faerie" like it matters. Faerly Oddparents. And you usually play solitaire in a solitary manner right, so I never knew why the mechanism for entrapping the fairies knew you won a game when you could just lie about it. You play it alone. Forget it, it sucks.

Dude, solitaire on steam?
Dude. "FAERIE" solitaire on steam?
Heck. Yes.

10/10

Pretty easy game of solitare, which allows you to buy buffs to make it even easier as you progress. It is pretty long though. Took me 10 hourish to get through the adventure mode. Great game if you want to save some fairies during a lunch break or something.

Ehh, it's a fun enough little time waster worth getting when it's on sale for a couple bucks or less. Nothing world-shattering, but what do you expect from a solitaire game.

I... guess I recommend this. I mean, if you like solitaire, this is a solitaire game, and it plays well. It's similar to tripeaks solitaire. In between the solitaire you have some story bits in the form of text during loading screens, and them some sortof cut scenes, which isn't terrible and can be skipped, and maybe has some suspense to it if you don't guess what's going on. You're some kid tasked with chasing after the fairies to save them from something evil, or something like that. And you play a lot of solitaire to save them, because it is pretty apparent you have the fighting skills of Atreyu from The Neverending Story when he killed the wolf simply by holding the sword the right way as he cowered when it pounced.

I played this for about 27 hours and got all but two achievements. Then I quit, because it's a painful grind to get all the eggs to randomly drop. Then I came back after a couple months and my save game is deleted. I looked online and this is a common issue, and the game does not and according to the devs will not support Steam's cloud sync. Better find and back up your save game regularly. Maybe even before finishing each level, because some of the tasks get really annoying when you play ten rounds to find that you didn't win enough of them, so start over.

So bottom line, it's cheap, tho not as cheap as that Klondike or Spider solitaire built into your Windows install. You might see where the story is going long before they reveal it. You may rage quit when you play fifty games in a row without an egg drop. Your save game may just magically cease to exist. Your friends may tease you for playing a game with "Faerie" in the title. But if you enjoy passing the time playing card games, these other issues don't matter.

Personal rating: 6/10

PROS:
+ interesting story for a Solitaire game
+ nice UI
+ classic Solitaire experience
+ relaxing

CONS:
- can get boring after a longer while of playing
- repetitive gameplay
- two achievements that are really tedious to get

Comment:
The first 25 hours in this game have been fun. It's the concept of Solitaire combined with a story campaign. Poured into the mix are also RPG elements, challenges and some achievements. While not astounding this game is good. However I gave a point less for the tedious egg gathering which works in a really funky way. As you see above I have played about 68 hours in total, that's becuse of the totally random egg appearance combined with a bad way of generating them. And this game does not add enough fun and gameplay variations to play it for almost 70 hours (or more if you are unlucky with the egg generator) for most people. I would still recommend it as it is relaxing and fun for the most part.

Relaxing mind-number. More challenging than regular solitaire as I find it's tougher to clear the board. The story/adventure mode doesn't add much, but it's a nice relaxing play to go through.

A nice adventure twist on Solitaire, this has a small but engaging story and some nice mechanics and a fairly broad variety of layouts to make it interesting. Most of the achievements are pretty straightforward and can be unlocked just by playing through all sections of the game.

Would recommend this to anyone who wants a fairly relaxing Solitaire-style game but wants a bit more than the traditional "simulate a table with cards on it" like regular or Spider Solitaire.

Cute timewaster but that's about it. Would have been nice if other card games were included aside from just the one, as it could have benefitted from being more of a solitaire "package".

The pet system is broken. Drop rates are so low for the rarer pets that unless you're willing to put in 60+ hours (which I'm not) then you can forget about the last two achievements.
