Looking for a unique solitaire game? Have a great time with Fairway Solitaire Blast, the fun-and-free-to-play golf-themed solitaire game published by Big Fish Games! In this game, you’ll have to perform matches to clear the board of all cards. Rack up those combos to trigger a super streak and keep filling the meter to earn more free cards! Each level contains 3 “strikes” and you’ll have to complete all 3 successfully in order to go to the next level, or as the game calls it, “hole”. The game also provides a nice variety of special cards that will drastically change your perception of a classic online solitaire game as well as your gaming experience! For any of the more difficult levels or “strikes”, thankfully, the game offers you a range of power-ups to purchase (with real money), though you may even get them for free, sometimes, when you draw a new card! So, get into that golf cart of yours and head towards Fairway Solitaire Blast for a unique solitaire experience today!
The game starts with a simple tutorial to teach you the basics of the game. Although experienced players may want to jump right in and skip the tutorial, you may want to hold on to that thought for the moment. This is because Fairway Solitaire Blast is no ordinary solitaire game, especially after you’ve been introduced to an integral part of the game – its special cards.
But first, for those of you who have not played an online game of solitaire before, well, to play, you’ll need to use up 1 life from the 5 lives given (once all of your lives are depleted, you’ll have to wait for more lives to play). Then, start chaining up card matches by collecting the match-able cards from the board to the one in your hand. Select cards one value higher or lower than the card at the bottom of the screen. Take note that you can only collect cards that are face up on the board and are not covered by any other cards. Also bear in mind that the cards’ suits are not taken into account in Fairway Solitaire Blast.
Ran out of matches? Well, double confirm that you didn’t miss out any matches before you draw a card by clicking on your deck! You can also use spacebar to draw new cards quickly. There are limited cards on your deck and the number of cards is always 29 (with 1 in your hand, so actually it’s a total of 30)… no more, no less. These 29 cards will have to last you for all 3 strikes in each game.
“Well, hold on now”, you may think, “What is a “strike”? Isn’t this a solitaire game?” Why yes it is, but Fairway Solitaire Blast is a golf-themed solitaire and hence the inclusion of golfing terms like “strikes” and “holes”. In this game, each level you play is call a “hole” while the 3 stages of games you play in each hole are called “strikes”. Thus, to win, you’ll have to get through all 3 strikes successfully in order to proceed to a new hole. Considering that each leftover card you have will provide a nice bonus to your final score, it isn’t very hard to get 3 stars per hole as long as you have a good eye for matches (and not waste the cards in your deck).
Furthermore, Fairway Solitaire Blast also has a nice combo system in place to help you out, provided that you can keep those combos coming! Get a streak of 14 cards consecutively in order to trigger a super streak! Keep filling the combo meter near to your deck to earn a free card, which will be added to your deck. Be warned though – you mustn’t draw a card in between combos or you’ll lose your streak! It’s also great to know that unbroken streaks can be brought over to the next strike from the previous one too! If you’re truly a solitaire pro, you can try to play 52 cards in a row without mistakes to enter flawless mode whereby you’ll be getting a nice 2x multiplier to all score points earned in the game! After all, long runs make long drives and like golf, long drives help make better scores!
The game objective in Fairway Solitaire Blast is very straightforward – you’ll need to clear all cards away from the board to win. There are sometimes side objectives as well that you can view by clicking on the slide-down handle below your game objective, which is at the top left corner of the screen. Completing the side objective/s will earn you extra special cards that are randomly added to your layout!
What are special cards? Well, they are a vital part in making Fairway Solitaire Blast a very unique game! Special cards in this game include wormburner, skyball and explosive shot. Worm burner clears playable cards horizontally while skyball clears playable cards vertically. Playable cards are exposed cards that you can collect and they don’t include the cards beneath the cards being cleared, by the way. Explosive shot, on the other hand, blows surrounding playable cards away. These cards are what that spiced the gameplay in this game up a fair bit!
There are also power-ups that you can buy using real money in Fairway Solitaire Blast to help you get those combos up as well as to help you get through some of the tougher holes. The game also gives you some power-ups in random when you draw a new card from your deck. These power-ups include shuffle, mulligans, bullseye and many others, and certain power-ups can only be used in certain holes! Shuffle, like the name, allows you to shuffle all of the cards on the board, which is great for extending a streak run without drawing a card. Mulligans can be used to undo a move, but you cannot use it consecutively in a game. On the other hand, bullseye shoots a card off the board and is the perfect power-up to use when the card you need is buried under another card. You are only allowed to hold 1 free power-up at a time, so be sure to use them before you can collect anymore free cards from the deck.
As you progress in the game, you’ll definitely encounter a whole lot more challenges that mimics the challenges that are present at a golf course. This includes rough, sand traps, and water hazards make you play each hole differently. You can also add irons to your golf bag to be used as wild cards when you need the right “club” (a.k.a. card) to keep a long run going! Not to forget, the game even allows you to customize the pattern at the backs of your cards for free. There are up to 10 different types of cardbacks that you can choose from, so if you’re bored with the old, default cardback, feel free to change it!
The game boasts of having over 100 thousand monthly active users even though Fairway Solitaire Blast is a rather old game as it is launched in 2012. The game also has almost 180 thousand likes on its Facebook fan page and it is a great way to meet with your fellow players and solitaire enthusiasts. You could even add new friends so that you can gift each other lives in the game!
The visuals in Fairway Solitaire Blast are absolutely amazing! Granted that the cards are rather plain, the background images for the game are stunning to say the least! Not to mention, its cartoony-type graphics that look hand-drawn are very appealing as well! In terms of music, the game has a quirky-sounding piano-based background music that can be deemed as “okay”. However, the intro music that plays when you are brought to your new game is amazing! Love the sound effects for the cards too as most games usually don’t bother too much with that! It’s indeed the little things that matters!
In conclusion, Fairway Solitaire Blast is a very entertaining yet challenging golf-based solitaire game that allows you to enjoy a unique solitaire experience! Get a streak of 14 cards consecutively in order to trigger a super streak and keep filling the combo meter to earn a free card! Complete all 3 “strikes” in each “hole” by clearing all the cards from your board as well as any side objectives that are required of you! Have a blast with the many special cards that certainly spice up the gameplay by a fair bit! Hit a snag in any of the “holes” in the game? There are also power-ups that you can purchase to help you out! So, are you ready for tee time? Throw your golf bag in the backseat and head on to the golf course in Fairway Solitaire Blast now!
