maybe

Solitaire is always a good way to kill time. Graphics look nice, considering downloading it.

I've played the free version. Very similar to fairway solitaire in gameplay. I'm not so fond of the cutsy pictures on the cards, but the game play is good. I may actually have to buy the full version. It also does not crash like fairway solitaire.

@Dazzlemi: Glad you like the gameplay! We spent a long time testing the game so it wouldn't crash If you purchase the full version via IAP, it means you won't lose your progress.

@tabs Thanks for supporting us! Glad to see you liked it

Hi Greenfly Studios! I just picked up Ski Solitaire thanks to the #BecauseWeMay sale and am having a blast!

One comment, I finished the first round and had a bunch of cash (the sweet smell of victory! ), so I went to the store and spent it all! Then I found I needed cash to enter the next event (the agony of defeat! ). Maybe you could warn the player in this case? E.g. if you buy this diamond-studded toothpick you won't have enough to start the next event. Anyway, now I know...

Also, any plans/possibility for a retina update? I'm getting spoiled on my iPad3 I know
