Kotaku's review called Fairway Solitaire "the real deal...a damn good game." It's also rated 5/5 on iTunes in Australia. Why? Because this isn't your average solitaire app. It reimagines the familiar card game into an addictive strategy experience with golf theme and power ups. Developer Big Fish Games knows it has a hit, so for a limited time, is celebrating by giving away free iTunes codes to download the FULL version. Free stuff FTW!

How To Play Fairway Solitaire
In Fairway Solitaire, each deck of cards that you play through is a ‘hole’ you pass before moving onto the next. The number of cards you’re stuck with at the end become your score for each ‘hole’. Finish a course under its par goal and you’ll win trophies and unlock new courses to progress through the tournament. But that's just the basics...
Play six cards in a row without going to the deck and your ‘great shot’ will rack up extra Golf Bucks that you can use to buy extra features and power ups.
You can also grab golf irons (card numbers) to help you shift a card when all else has failed. Miss an obvious move, however, and you’ll hear the disappointment of the crowd.
You’ll also need to negotiate special water hazard and sand trap cards, and shoot from the rough at times (for these, you’ll have to play the card twice).
Add in 'Wild Shot' mini games, the continued fun threat of crazy-eyed gopher mascot Gutsy McDivot — plus daily challenges — and you've got stacks to you explore as you make your way through the game's 70 unique courses.
