Why Solitaire Should be Required in All Public Schools.....K through 12 in the U.S.A.

This type of ..."Solitaire" Has 4 Rows at the Top of the Game For the Aces..(see right below)

The across the top room for 4 Aces. As Aces come up, they are placed in one of 4 Rows..

..........row 1 ............. .......row 2 . .............row 3 . ........row 4
_____________ _______________. . ______________ . ______________

And then,...7 More Rows are below for all cards..........Below is an example:


_______ _______ ________ _______ _______ _______ ___________

cards ..... ..cards ..... cards ....cards .......cards ....cards ...cards


The game goes on until the player WINS........OR ........LOSES......Then the player plays it
again and again and again..........................................

A Good Grammar School Teacher could teach this game in a few days...AND...after a few days
everyone learns to play this game..If you play the game once, and get the hang of it, you will
play it again, and again, and again, and again..............Once learned, the game is easy to play,
and the computer shuffles the cards and sets up the game............................

...........................And the game is often played again and again and again...............................

NOW..................WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF LEARNING THIS GAME.???????????????

.....................THE PURPOSE IS TO TEACH AND IMPORTANT LIFE ABILITY.......................
.....................IN ORDER TO LIVE A HEALTHY & PRODUCTIVE LIFE.................................

.......... ............ WE ALL..........NEED ..........PATIENCE!.............................

......................THAT IS THE ABILITY TO LIVE WITH A PROBLEM AND NOT SOLVE IT IMMEDIATELY!!!!

....................... LEARNING HOW TO PLAY THIS KIND OF SOLITAIRE............................

......................................... TEACHES........PATIENCE !!!!!......

__________________________________________________________________________________
. Once a person learns this game, most of us do not forget it......
...................And, you can play on the computer, or play with real cards. It doesn't matter..
..................Here is the most important point about playing this game:.......
A player only wins about 1 in 7 of all games...If you play this form of solitaire...you learn to
be patient with yourself, and, THEN YOU ALSO LEARN TO BE PATIENT WITH OTHERS..

______________________________________________________________________________
.PEOPLE THESE DAYS ARE ALWAYS RUSHING TO EVERYWHERE...HERE AND THERE...
OFTEN TAKING SOME TIME, BRINGS MUCH BETTER RESULTS.....DRIVING A CAR
WAY OVER THE SPEED LIMIT IS AN EXAMPLE...AND RUSHING THROUGH THE STORE
IN A HURRY IS ANOTHER EXAMPLE.......IN BOTH CASES MISTAKES MIGHT BE
MADE THAT COULD EASILY BE AVOIDED IF WE SLOWED DOWN AND TOOK
TIME TO ACCOMPLISH A TASK.


IF, this is not clear, (and perhaps this is not explained clearly) other lessons be found on the internet, or you could learn this game
from a friend who knows how to play
..Yes, I believe this is worth learning....
__________________________________________________________________________________

Please think about this one and give it a chance to settle in your mind.
Yes, ...... all comments are acceptable:
Yes, "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly......and of course, The VERY VERY, UGLY


Thank You for reading this & if you wish...Pass it On To Others

3. I found your post very easy to read, my dear Stuart G, and I agree!

I play Solitaire on the computer all the time, and it's a great time sink!

It also works for all the other reasons you mention.

It's all good.

4. It gets boring after awhile......

When I played a lot . it was 50%+ winning. I am sure an algorithm could better my real world results.

5. Maybe. But reading takes patience too and heaven knows it could benefit everyone to read more

That would be my preference for myself and frankly others.

7. IIRC, the original name for "Solitaire" was "Patience"...

perhaps the Brits still call it that.
