You’re not selfish for needing to get rest, eat, sleep, and do the things that you enjoy. You’re not a machine, and no one should expect you to act like one.

Solitaire Bliss Promotes Equality in a Fun New Way

I love playing card games.  Cards are one of my favorite ways to pass time when I’m feeling bored or looking for ways to challenge my mind in a fun way.  Solitaire Bliss is a fun website with free card games for you to play any time and any where.  The newest card game mode created on the Solitaire Bliss is Equality mode.  The way it works, is the K, Q and J are replaced with 13, 12 and 11.  This was created after a new employee named Renee questioned why the King’s value was worth more than the Queen’s.  She then pointed out that Queen Elizabeth would never be stacked under a king.  With that being said, the team over at Solitaire Bliss started working on more options for players who may feel the same as Renee.  Now you can choose King First or Queen First, in Equality mode, when playing on the site.There are lots of fun card games available on the Solitaire Bliss website including some of my favorites, that I often  played in my office during downtime or when on vacation during a ra…
