Below are five of your favorite classic games with a mobile twist:

Really Bad Chess (iOS, Android)

Really Bad Chess takes one of the most popular games in the world and adds a fun twist that ensures a new and challenging experience with every game. All of the rules of chess that you have come to expect are still in play, however, all of the pieces are random, you could find yourself playing with 5 queens or only one castle every game is different.

Due to the random element of the game, it is a game that is not just enjoyable for chess lovers but also for new players who aren’t confident with the rules and just want to have a quick and fun game. Really Bad Chess quickly becomes addictive and leaves you curious as to what pieces you’ll get in the next game.

Flipflop Solitaire (iOS)

Flipflop Solitaire takes the traditional card game spider and breaks all the rules to create a new and slightly crazy version that quickly becomes addictive. All of the normal rules for stacking cards are gone instead you can stack up, down or even both ways, meaning that stacking a 3 on a 2 is no longer a problem that could stop you from winning the game. There is, however, one limit you can only create stacks that contain one suit and remember you don’t want to trap cards that you might later need to win the game.
