When you look in the games section on your computer you’ll see solitaire. It’s a game that can be played alone and is a great way to pass the time. It can be frustrating when hand after hand you lose but almost magical when you win. Solitaire dates back more than 200 years with records showing 1783 as the date it originated in Germany. When the French started playing the game its popularity soared in the 1800’s and became even more popular when it made its way to England in the late 19th century.
