Ears Skipbo Solitaire

Description of App: 

Ears Skipbo Solitaire is a fully accessible card game inspired by the Skipbo card game, for both sighted and visually impaired people, designed for rapid audio play.

The objective of the game is to be the first one to empty your stock pile. You have a stock pile with 30 cards, 4 discard piles, and your hand of 5 cards. Your opponent has the same. The deck consists of cards from 1 to 12.

The game starts by playing a 1 card from your hand onto a build pile. Then if you have a 2 card, you play it, then a 3 card and so on, until you play a 12. The build pile is cleared off, and you start again. If you cannot play a card, you discard a card, and your opponent goes. There are other rules, but that's quick summary of the game.

You can play with up to 3 computer opponents, and change their skill level.

Ears Skipbo Solitaire was suggested by several blind gamers who enjoyed Solitaire and Hearts.

Ears Skipbo Solitaire comes with coins to learn how to play, with additional coins available as an in-app upgrade.
