What can Cube Solitaire teach you?

Cube Solitaire seems like any ordinary card game. Right? You’ll be surprised to know that it is not. 

When you first download the Solitaire Cube app, the game will appear deceivingly straightforward. You might even be fooled to think that randomly arranging the cards will fetch you a win. Surely, you can try that. You will quickly realize the game has its unique challenges. For instance, each match session is timed and fast-paced. You have five minutes to arrange the decks and transfer them to the foundation pile before your opponent. Also, you have to take note of the game’s rules and place cards in alternating colors according to their suits. What’s more, you can only move the exposed cards while the hidden cards cannot be used in the play. You need to free more cards and turn them upside to use them. 

However, the game isn’t overly complicated, and you can quickly get the hang of it. Play a few practice games, and you’ll be able to learn a few strategies that can improve your winning chances. When you are confident, you can participate in cash contests and tournaments to win cash prizes. 

Besides offering mental stimulation and entertainment, the game teaches players these important lessons. You can implement these lessons in your real life. 

The obvious play is not always the best option

In Cube Solitaire, there’s no guarantee that the best play is the best option to help you win. Unless the play puts the Ace to the top stack, there is never a guarantee that you will win the game. There might be times when the King card is laying somewhere uninvitingly, and you are holding on to a Queen card. Therefore, you must not assume that the move you think is the best is truly the best. You always need to analyze and assess the game board and execute a move. 

Also, try to look for moves that are not too obvious. Even the subtle ones might fetch you the results you seek. 

You can apply the same logic to your regular life. When an option or solution seems viable, you might be eager to act on it. But have you considered your other options? You must assess the pros and cons of your decisions before going ahead with them. Sometimes, the seemingly subtle solutions might surprise you. It might even be the best play and help you get what you desire. 

Always think ahead and consider the consequences 

Randomly placing cards is one of the primary mistakes that can cost you the game. Whenever you move a card, it is a gamble. You need to think about the consequences before executing a move carefully. You must think three steps ahead so that you win the game. 

Even in life, you must not rush to make any decision. You need to take your time and assess all aspects of your decision. You must ensure the consequences of your decision are worth it. If the decision is not viable in the long run, you must look for other solutions. Short-term decisions can throw you into a state of crisis, and you might find it hard to come out of such situations. 

You cannot always win 

Cube Solitaire is a puzzle card game. All decks are not solvable, and you cannot hope to win each match. You are going to lose a few of them. It might be that your opponent’s strategies are better than yours, or you are distracted. No matter the case, it is impossible to win every game. 

The same rules apply to life. No matter how careful you are, you might not win every time. There will be a few losses your way, and you need to take it sportingly. You cannot give up on life because you have hit a few roadblocks. It is important to assess your losses and find out where you went wrong. Once you do that, you will be capable of making better decisions next time. Also, don’t think that you have lost in life or the game because you are not smart or intelligent enough. Sometimes, losses are inevitable.

It doesn’t matter if you’ve won many times; you can always do better 

So, you have won a few matches in a row. That’s great news. You might have also won a few cash contests, and you feel confident. While you should continue feeling confident, know that you can always do better. For instance, you can beat your high score every time you solve a deck. It will reflect your personal growth and enhancement of your skills. Therefore, no matter how many times you have won, you might not let your wins go to your head. It would be best if you had a calm mind and always tried to do better the next time. 

In life, people often get over-confident when they keep having several wins. But there is always room for improvement. It would be best not to stop improving yourself because you have had a few wins. 

The bottom line 

The lessons taught by Cube Solitaire will remain with you throughout your life. The more you play this game, the more skills and strategies you will learn. You can implement all of them to improve your life in the real world. So, download and install the game right away.
