Solisquare is a quick-moving version of solitaire. The player has a deck of cards in the center of the playing field. There are four places to stack carts and four places to store cards. The player can stack cards by either playing a card that is up one or down one from the card currently on the top of the stack. The goal is to get all of the deck of cards into one of the stacks before running out of legal moves.

Solisquare has ads and in-game purchases. The ESRB rated it E for Everyone and LW4K stands by this rating. Due to the nature of playing cards, however, the player needs to be old enough to understand simple counting and face cards.

Solisquare helps kids practice and improve the following skills:

FlexibilitySolisquare

Adapting and adjusting to changing conditions and expectations.

In Solisquare, the player only gets to think about one card at a time. This means no matter how much the player wants to plan, they aren’t going to be able to. They must use their flexibility skills and adapt their strategy with every card, based on what numbers they have and how many spaces they have that are empty. If they don’t stay flexible and adapt their choices as they play, they will be unable to win. This will keep them from earning coins and leveling up.

Organization

Arranging and coordinating materials in order to complete a task.

Because there are only eight places that the cards can be placed, the player has to be very organized when deciding where to place the cards. They then have to keep those placements in their head and know when to move—or reorganize—the cards. If they can’t keep up this process of organize and reorganize, they will run out of space and end the game without many coins or leveling up.
