    "V for victory"


    This 'most diabolical version' of the classic game is a two-deck take inspired by British Prime Minister Winston Churchill's version of the card game - and it's been developed by none other than the 83-year-old former US defense secretary, Donald Rumsfeld. Big names aside, Churchill Solitaire is a smooth and impressively fiendish variant.

    The game features two decks of cards rather than one, 10 rows of cards instead of seven, and an extra pile of six cards called “the Devil’s Six” for the player to work into their strategy.

    It really is a pleasure to play: devilishly difficult, and also very stylish, backed by some tense wartime-style music and footage. Churchill Solitaire is free to download but includes in-game purchases, the proceeds of which are going to charity


    The game is a genuinely novel and challenging twist on the classic, with free trial deals of easy, medium and hard levels of difficulty. You can also ask for hints, which proved helpful as I was learning as I went.

    Collect badges and ranks, as you progress from a Sandhurst Cadet through Prime Minister. We love the war-time footage, and evocative video and audio of Winston Churchill.

    The game let you play against your pals, and you can pit yourself against online players with Game Center integration, achievements and leaderboards.


    The in-app purchases are pretty pricey - but proceeds do go to charity.
