Summer looks to be very far away, so I thought I’d give this colourful game a try to conjure up some warm thoughts to push away this winter chill. Well, it didn’t work. It was very relaxing, too relaxing, so much so that I wanted to go out an run around in the snow, except that, even with the nation locked up tight in a blizzard that runs from border to border, even in Florida, we don’t get snow. I played a few more rounds, and the game got a little more challenging along the way, so the peaceful factor went down a bit, as tends to happen when you don’t figure out a tri-peaks solitaire game right away. The thing is, this is not ordinary tri-peaks. Some of the puzzles lay out like various mahjongg games. You still run the sequences up and down, but when tri-peaks really isn’t tri-peaks isn’t tri-peaks, but tri-peaks trying to be something else, what do you call it? I call it lame. If I want to chase flowers, I’ll go to the Chipley Lawn and Nursery and buy some marigolds and bluebells. Summer Tri-Peaks Solitaire is really not a good way to while away the winter, or any other season.
