    solution for update problem

    I too had a problem loading the program after the Dec 2011 update. I contacted Astraware and they gave me the following work-around which solved the problem for me - maybe it will also help others:

    -turn the Nook completely off
    -remove the SD memory card
    -turn the Nook on, wait for everything to load, then open Solitaire
    -if it comes up ok (mine did), then it's ok to put the SD card back in.

    btw - I received the solution from Astraware within just a few minutes of emailing my question - so my 5star rating stands - enjoyable program with quick and accurate technical support

    Works great for me

    This is a really good set of solitaire apps. Totally worth $5, maybe more, if you suspect you'll play it a lot.

    Almost every game is customizeable. For intance, Spider can be 1,2 or 4 suits, you can allow any card to start a new tableau, or just kings. You can be allowed to move any pile of cards, or just cards in sequence, or just cards in sequence with matching suits.

    You can learn almost any game by turning on "Highlight useful moves", which will show you which cards are legitimate moves. It'll generally move them for you when you tap, and the moves are rarely wrong, and you can always undo and move manually if you want to. There's an AI which will warn you when you've reached a dead end, it seems to be accurate (except for Spider, the AI doesn't seem to consider the usefulness of moving cards in mixed-suit in-sequence piles onto new tableaux to straighten out the suits, but if this happens, you know that you have almost won)

    Occasionally, you'll break away, and come back to see that the card backs are white. Renavigating to the Apps screen and reopening it fixes that. And some of the navigation buttons to tap are in the corners of the screen, where sensitivity seems poor on the Nook. I've had it crash maybe twice in several months, and I play it a lot. Powering down and back on fixed it. But really, that's the absolute worst problems I've had with this app, and those are pretty minor problems.

    Awesome

    Love this app. Yes I needed to remove my sd card after the update and reboot but no big deal. Astraware has always been helpful with the very few glitches I have ever had with any of their games. I love this one and the Mahjong too.

    DO NOT UPDATE!

    This game was expensive but functional and enjoyable. After an update, however, it has stopped working completely. Totally inexcusable, I can't believe a "professional" software developer would let something like this happen. If I could rate it zero stars, I would.

    Not very happy

    This app worked fine until I updated it, now it won't load at all. I have archived and unarchived and it still won't work. I will definitely be contacting the developer because this is the 2nd game of theirs that has stopped working after an update.

    Kills My Nook, Repeatedly

    The games are good but the last four attempts to use this app have frozen the nook completely. It can't be shut off or restarted. The display goes blank, with an almost undetectable glow. It then overheats as it discharges the battery. After the battery is totally discharged, it will take a new charge and the restart is similar to the very first start. It works okay until this app is engaged again and then the same scenario occurs. Same thing happened to a friends nook, caused by the same app. I'll try to get my money back but given B&Ns previous responses to nook issues, I'm not optomistic.

    The best solitaire game available!

    This is one of my favorite games. I first bought it on my HP Touchpad and totally loved it. Then I found it on my Nook Tablet! So happy. I love the way that you can totally customise it. And there are so many configuration choices. The games themselves are wonderful and it has my favorite - Canfield! I like that there is the challenge of winning the elusive golden deck. Just a great app!

    A Number of the apps don't work now

    I am angry becasue a lot of the apps that I have no longer work since the layest nook came Out. I paid for the apps an d now they are worthless! I really Liked playing this app a great deal. and was in the process of a winning streak. When my Nook was upgraded, I was unable to use this one as well as a number of others. One would think that B&N would have at Least gave credit that was spent on the now not working apps, so that people could have at least used it towards a book or an app that WOULD work with the upgrade.

    I enjoyed the game but it caused my Nook to lockup. I contacted

    I enjoyed the game but it caused my Nook to lockup. I contacted the developer and they had be try some things to make it work but It continued to lockup my Nook. It has something to do with the SD card.
    B&N refunded my money.
