A very nice game to play when you have nothing else to do. It's a rather addictive game. I started playing it to get the Steam Trading Cards, but continued playing it for the achievements. Its badge is awesome! Overall, a cute game and I recommend it to people who like cards.

Play this if you like solitaire, but keep in mind that Chef Solitaire: USA doesn't offer anything new or special. If you have played any other solitaire game like Faire Solitaire, then this will be exactly the same, just with slightly different graphics. If you are looking for more of the same, go for it, the game works and looks nice. There are a few minigames which are very standard puzzle games like match-three style, as well as some sort of chef-story to serve as a background, but that's it.

as far as I'm concerned, steam could use more solitaire games, but from what's on offer, chef solitaire is one of the best. the aesthetics are nice, the voice acting is good, the levels are plentiful and it has almost everything you might need: volume sliders, windowed mode, difficulty settings, various languages, unlockable items to help you, skippable minigames, etc.

as for the negatives, well, there's food everywhere, so playing on an empty stomach is not advised. also, the intro has to be skipped every time and since there's no slider for speech volume (and editing the appropriate line in the .ini does nothing), even if you mute the game's audio you'll occasionally hear talking. options to turn off the intro and minigames for good would've been nice. oh, and I found a typo.

these are really small issues though, so pick it up if you want to play something relaxing, possibly while watching or listening to stuff.

A decent little solitaire game. It does start to get repetitive after a while, but the mini games are sometimes a nice distraction and there is somewhat of a story to follow through on.

Got this in a bundle, and in that context (<$1) it is a solid 7.5 / 10
4.99 full price is still okay though because you will get several hours of entertainment out of this casual title. 5.5/10

Chef Solitaire: USA is a card game showcasing the classic many of us are familiar with. In an effort to open restaurants in every state in the continental US, you gather money and complete services. 48 states with 10 stages in each state provide a total of 480 services for you to complete. With nice artwork, transitions, special effects, personalization and depth, CS:USA is a great addition for any casual fan of Solitaire or card games in general.

CS:USA utilizes the Golf rules (Golf Solitaire), where all building is carried out on a single waste pile. Any single, exposed card from a stack may be transferred to the waste pile if it follows either an ascending or descending sequence regardless of suit. To breakup the monotony, fun yet skippable mini-games are injected throughout the deck. A stage is completed upon achieving the required goals (1 Star, 4 Chef Hats [specifically marked cards], etc). Money and the star meter is progressed throughout the game from continuous play streaks.

There are many card/Solitaire games currently on Steam, yet CS:USA has a higher quality of production. Some of the examples of this are listed below.

Examples of high quality:
  • Great artwork.
  • Character voice-overs.
  • Undo-button - card wriggles if you had a play remaining with previous card.
  • Multiple difficulty levels (Casual < Normal < Hard (No K-A or Vice Versa)).
  • Purchasable items: reveal remaining # of cards in deck, etc.
  • Personalization: card backs/fronts, auto-finish, cursor image.

The great depth in this game doesn't leave much for improvement. The only things I would have desired to see include: ability to recontinue a game in progress, Solitaire games using traditional rules.

Score
Great
- 9/10

Another fun casual solitare game, good for a 30 minute blast to fill in some time. The mini games are fun for a while but when they pop up when chasing the end game I tend to skip it to continue with the main game.
Anyway, games like these are great to tune out with.

I give it, 7 Arm farts out of 8.

I like this game a lot, but people considering purchasing should know it's the kind of solitare where you're given a number (let's say 5) and you can get rid of the numbers on the board above or below it (4 or 6) wiith no regard given to suit. So if you want traditional solitare this won't appeal.

If you're familiar with and enjoy the many solitaire games currently on Steam, then you'll certainly find yourself right at home with Chef Solitaire: USA. With entertaining gameplay and charming presentation, for a title as reasonably priced as this you simply cannot go wrong.

Chef Solitaire: USA uses the golf rule set, which 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.

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=601334369
The game is divided into the 48 continental states, each with 10 boards to complete. As you clear the boards, you'll earn money to purchase power-ups that will help you play cards much easier. 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 board. But what I found most interesting is that the board objectives do not necessarily encourage you to clear all cards, which adds a bit of strategy to the play. Completing the requirements ends the stage regardless of whether or not all cards have been removed. So, if you're aiming for Perfects, many times you'll need to make a decision call on whether you should risk failure and pass over a winning card in the hope that the right cards are in your deck to get you that full clear, or simply play it to finish up and move on. Of course, luck plays a factor in the draw with particularly bad layouts often requiring several retries if you don't have enough power-ups to get through them. But that comes with the territory in solitaire.

Sprinkled throughout the decks are mini-game cards that reward extra money. These timed games range from a Match-3 board to Memory Cards, but are fun little diversions that help mix things up as you play. There's an option to skip them if you choose, which I found myself doing from time to time as I zoned out to the less hectic pace of the solitaire boards, but I'd recommend doing them to build your cash for achievements.

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=601334383
There are three difficulty levels with the hardest having a low chance for mini-games, less points awarded per board and no King to Ace conversion, which substantially increases the difficulty of the game making achievements harder to complete. However, if you're looking for a more "pure" solitaire experience, this may just be the thing for you. Normal should strike a good balance for most players, with Easy offering a more zen-like experience as you clear the boards with ease.

The presentation is charming with beautiful hand-painted backgrounds and character art. Music is a highlight with jazzy piano selections serving as backdrop to the restaurant-themed levels. Well-written and entertaining journal entries are intermittently placed between states which detail the struggles and successes of the game's heroine as she conquers the US with her delicious cuisine. Altogether, this recipe makes for one tasty little card game.

Fans of solitaire, do not pass on this gem. For just $5, I clocked in 25 hours to 100%, and there's plenty more here if you decide to play it over again on Hard (or Easy if the mood so strikes). This is one of the most well-rounded solitaire experiences I've had on Steam and will certainly find myself back again when I need to scratch that solitaire itch.

Bottom Line: Highly recommended to all solitaire and casual gaming fans.

Chef Solitaire: USA

What a wonderful relaxing casual card game this is. The game is easy, and very addictive as I have found, I just cant stop playing when I get started. This is a great game for when you have a few minutes to spare and want something simple and relaxing to play to help pass some time, or you can make an evening of playing this card game. This is my kind of game, and I absolutely love it. Sorry no spoilers from me, you'll just have to look the store page and take peoples words for it. Look If you really enjoy card games, then you will enjoy this game as well.

Price wise : I believe its a decent price and at the moment its 25% off so even better. It has Achievements to earn and Trading Cards as well. I'll give this game a 10/10

There are many nights where I come home from work and just want to play something casual. A game that doesn't require full screen mode, sounds, or my full attention to play...allowing me to stop without enduring countdowns or a permanent death in game. A perfect fit while I watch/listen to a tv show that aired that night. Stopping gameplay here and there when something crazy goes down in the show.

Chef Solitatire: USA fits my needs perfectly. It is by far my favourite solitaire game/casual game on Steam at the moment. Not only is it visually appealing, but the story that goes with it is great too! It even has trading cards and achievements as well which is always a plus in my books.

The levels themselves are pretty straight forward. Some are easier than others. This game does have a star system where you try to obtain three stars per level. You don't have to get the full three to continue onto the next level but you do have to meet a certain quota of stars to open the next restaurant. If you enjoy casual games as I do, you won't mind doing levels over and over to get the perfect three star score.

The $5 you spend on this game is well worth it. Plenty of gameplay, mini games, and twists on certain levels. Who would of thought trying to figure out what cards to use in order to get get bacon, grease, or other antics off your cards in order to use that row would actually be fun!! xD

Kudos to the husband/wife dev team from The Revills Games. Steve and Kylie, you two have created an outstanding game for us gamers who enjoy playing games in this genre.

Casual gamers & friends, don't pass this title up. A++

Very similar to all the other solitaire games out there, and that's a good thing. If you like those games, this is a safe purchase. It doesn't disappoint on any aspect. No bugs, so far as I can tell. Fun and relaxing.
