Many portable versions of solitaire exist, including on standalone consoles. For players preferring to play solitaire on a mobile phone or game device, several versions are available as well. Many portable solitaire games include options letting players customise their play table and select different game styles.

Big Screen Solitaire

"Big Screen Solitaire," created by Rashida, is a portable game console exclusively for solitaire. The ergonomically shaped console, which includes an automatic backlight for lowlight conditions, has two styles of solitaire: Vegas and Klondike. The Big Screen Solitaire system runs on four AA batteries.

Mega Screen Solitaire

"Mega Screen Solitaire" is another handheld console only playing solitaire. Users choose between draw one and draw three Klondike solitaire modes. Mega Screen Solitaire includes an auto-off feature after two minutes of idling to conserve the two AA batteries.

Nintendo DS

Portable gaming system Nintendo DS can also be used to play solitaire. In one title, "Solitaire Overload," more than 100 versions of solitaire are included. "Solitaire Overload" includes multiple versions of Klondike, Field and Spider. Some lesser known game types are also featured, including Yukon and Forty Thieves. Players also have greater ability to customise game elements like backgrounds and card types in "Solitaire Overload."

Mobile Devices

Other solitaire options are available on mobile devices. For iPhone and iPod touch, many versions of solitaire are available. One title, "Top 3," combines the top three most well known solitaire titles -- Klondike, Freecell and Spider. For Android phones, "Solo Plus Max" includes an open mode -- a unique approach to solitaire. By laying all cards face up, what is normally a game of chance becomes a contest requiring significantly more strategy.
