Online card game platform Solitaired is upping the ante with its new and exquisitely designed trivia decks. Players around the world can discover fun facts about some of history’s most fascinating figures.

The browser-based site offers more than 500 classic solitaire games, making them the perfect opportunity to educate and entertain yourself during COVID-19-enforced lockdowns. Enjoy the likes of card-based classics such as Solitaire, FreeCell, and Spider, all with an educational spin.

On Solitaired, players can use the “Change Design” option to choose from dozens of decks, including the MIT - Inspiring Inventors and Heroes of the Civil Rights Movement designs. Learn about the incredible lives of history’s heroes, from civil rights activists like Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa Parks to suffragists such as Sojourner Truth and Laura de Force Gordon, who fought for women’s rights in the American West.

Created in collaboration with partners like Encyclopedia Britannica, the Jeopardy-winning biographers of Who2, and MIT’s Lemelson program, the educational deck designs have been created to add an additional flare to the hugely popular card games.

Solitaired founders, Neal Taparia and Darshan Somashekar previously created and sold EasyBib, an education software company that reached 30 million students annually, and looked at how games could be used to teach.

Somashekar said, “Solitaire continues to be one of the most popular games played. Millions of people play it every day as a fun way to take a break. Instead of just traditional cards, we saw an opportunity to shake things up and tell a story around fascinating figures. Now, when millions of people play this classic game, not only will they have fun, they’ll learn about individuals who’ve made a difference too.”
