One of favorite new solitaire games is called Free Flow. A layout of dots is presented. The goal is to connect all the colored dots together. Sounds easy, but it can be hard. Each game only takes a few minutes — either you win or can’t solve the problem. According to Star Trek during one of the BORG episodes, Data discusses the attractions of solitaire. Like the challenge, it would be boring if people won all the time. But this one is easy enough I win often. Perfect for those late nights and early mornings where I can’t think, am exhausted, yet unready to sleep. Thanks Liz for introducing me to this game. Wonder what other ones might also be fun? Guess that’s part of the brilliance of apple products–make it easy and cheap for people to buy new toys.
