Selection by Game NumberSelect GameTo select a specific game, tap the Select Game icon in the toolbar as shown at left. Enter a number from 1 to 2,000,000,000 and then tap Deal Now in the displayed popover (as shown at top). The game number you enter can be duplicated on your iPad as often as you desire, and is even duplicated on other iPads, Macs, or PCs running Solitaire Plus. In other words, selecting a game number selects a specific ordering of the cards that is the same even among different computers. You can use this feature to compete with a friend by playing exactly the same deals.


When you tap the "Deal Now" button the game card piles will be cleared, new deck(s) added, shuffled, and redealt. If a game is in progress and has progressed beyond a few moves, you will be prompted to confirm the deal (unless you have unchecked Show Confirms). Remember, if you are asked to confirm, the previous game will count in your statistics.


The game number for each solitaire variation starts at game # 1 if you have not selected a game number before. Once you select a game number, then the dialog will automatically increment by 1 each subsequent time you choose Select Game.


The current game number is always displayed in the toolbar.
