Zachtronics combined tarot with solitaire, and it’s my new daily jam

  • by

Since I drifted away from Wordle and Knotwords earlier this year I’ve been looking for a new game to play in short sessions every morning or evening: Just a little something to puzzle over during coffee and again to unwind with at the end of the day. I wouldn’t have expected to find what I was looking for in a solitaire game, but Zachtronics proved me wrong.

Part of The Zachtronics Solitaire Collection (opens in new tab), which contains eight different solitaire games, Fortune’s Foundation is a bit like Freecell… but without the free cells. In addition to the expected 52 playing cards there are also 22 tarot cards mixed in. Thanks to a few interesting rules and the fact that it’s a heck of a challenging game—I’ve been playing a few times each morning and night this week, and I’ve only won a total of three times—Fortune’s Foundation has quickly become my new daily jam.
