Apparently when it comes to gaming, I have the soul of an 80-year old. An 80-year old who lived 50 years ago. My two favorite game apps are solitaire and mahjong. Candy Crush? Jelly Dash? Fruit Ninja? Pah. Not for me.
My solitaire app has 160 (be still my heart!) different versions of solitaire. 160! I could never download another game ever and be completely content with life until the day I die. It costs $3.99, but I’m pretty sure I got it on sale. I love this app so much. (I have a smaller version on my phone, that one only has 50 versions. It’s pretty great too.)
My second favorite game app is mahjong, specifically Shanghai Mahjong. This costs $0.99, and I do believe I paid full price for this one. I like this version because it has a very large number of board layouts; a previous mahjong app I had downloaded had too few and I got bored very quickly. You can customize your tiles and backgrounds, but I prefer the classic look.
I do have several (ok, five) Angry Birds games, but while I do genuinely enjoy playing them, they don’t pass the longevity test the way these two do. I haven’t open an Angry Birds game in at least six months, but I played solitaire two days ago.
