No, I’m not talking about the region of the Yukon Territory in northwest Canada, east of the Alaska border. This post is not about that Klondike, which is famed for the Klondike Gold Rush, which started in 1897 and lasted until 1899.
And I’m also not talking about the Klondike ice cream bar that consists of a square of vanilla ice cream coated with a thin layer of chocolate. Nope, that’s not what this post is about either.
The Klondike I’m referring to is the best-known solitaire card game, to the point that the term “solitaire,” in the absence of additional qualifiers, typically refers to Klondike.
So why am I writing about a solitaire game? Well, it’s simply because I have an app on my iPhone called Klondike Solitaire and when I’m not blogging — posting, reading, and commenting — I’m probably playing Klondike Solitaire on my iPhone.I really need to get a life!
