The Most Popular and Easy Games To Play Online

Playing card games are both fun and challenging. Playing online can help with the loneliness that many are feeling with Covid-19 keeping us all at home. In this article, I’ll share with you the top three, most popular card games to play online.

Let’s dive in!

#1:  Solitaire

Solitaire is the most popular card game that you can play online. Solitaire Bliss is a great website for playing solitaire and other card games. Be sure to check it out and become the master of this game.

Here, I’ll give you a quick rundown on how to play:

  1. Piles should start with King and end with Ace
  2. Build piles in alternating colours
  3. You can either move a top card or an ordered set of cards
  4. Move Kings to empty slots to reveal new cards
  5. Move all ordered sets of cards to the foundations to win

Solitaire Bliss makes playing this game easy and simple. Enjoy hours of fun. Share it with your friends to make it even more exciting.

#2:  Texas Hold’em

Before trying your luck at poker tables online, come prepared by knowing the basics of the game. There are ten hands everyone should know. Some of them include three of a kind, a pair of the same number or two pairs of the same number. The most coveted hands in the game, starting with the most famous are:

  • Royal Flush- Consists of the Ace, King, Queen, Jack and Ten of the spades suit
  • Straight Flush- Five cards in a sequence of the same suit
  • Four of a kind- Four cards of the same rank
  • Full House- Two sets of three cards in one rank and two of another rank
  • Flush- Five cards of the same suit, but not in sequential order

In the event that no one has any of these hands, or in the event of a tie,  the highest card wins. Be sure to fool your friends with your bluffing. They’ll never know which cards you have, giving you a chance to win!

#3:   War

The game of War is played with two players. It takes time and will definitely keep you occupied for long periods of time. The rules are very simple. Each player gets dealt half of a deck, face down. Each gets twenty-six cards in total. Each player turns up the top card at the same time. The highest card wins that round and the player takes both cards to form a new stack to use when you finish the first pile.

If the cards that are played are the same rank, that starts a “war”. Each player plays an additional three cards, face down and one on top face up. The face-up card at the end determines who wins that round. The first player to lose all their cards loses the game.

Recap:

Choose any of the above games to pass the time. They are easy and fun. And you can play alone or with friends online. Enjoy!

Easy Email Migration Tool for Everyday Users

Everyone who has been working with the Outlook emailing client for a long time is well acquainted with the PST file format. This is a local copy of mail account that is connected to the MS Outlook client. It stores all messages from the post-box, contacts, appointments, reminders, notes, calendars, as well as other information necessary to restore an account. For example, it may be vital on another PC or after reinstalling the operating system.

It is important that in case of problems with the Internet connection or due to technical problems on the server itself, you will be able to connect to the mail server. Since the OST file becomes inaccessible directly from MS Outlook, it does not have built-in functionality of reading these types of files. For this reason, some users may need to convert data files to .PST format, which can be read without problems by Microsoft email client.

The Outlook Transfer

An easy-to-use convenient Email Conversion Software for Migration to Outlook can be found by visiting outlooktransfer.com where you can browse all the proper information about the developer and functionality. Using this application you can solve the following tasks:

  1. Perform fast migration from IncrediMail, Gmail, The Bat! and other mailing clients to MS Outlook;
  2.  Convert file formats;
  3.  Store files without using additional space.

Additionally, the following features of the service make the usage as convenient as possible:

  • An active Internet connection is not required;
  • To export data to a .PST file, you must have installed Microsoft Outlook;
  • No restrictions on the number and size of files.

How Does It Work?

First, you need to download the installation file of the program from the official website of the developer and follow the instructions of the wizard.

Actually, there is not always a computer or laptop with installed MS Outlook nearby. However, if you purchase an annual license for corporate usage – you will take even more from this tool, as you can use the service and convert files in just a few simple steps, having almost any device with a browser and Internet connection in your office.

They went on to captivate the entire world with the July 21, 1987 release of Appetite For Destruction, which remains the best-selling U.S. debut album ever, moving over 30 million copies globally. Appetite features such indelible tracks such as the No. 1 single “Sweet Child O’ Mine,” “Welcome To The Jungle,” “Nightrain,” and “Paradise City.”

The band’s ongoing success of the ‘Not In This Lifetime’ worldwide tour has elevated it to the 4th spot on the list of the most successful tours in music history, from its first two years alone – with no sign of slowing down.

Film Review: “It’s So Easy And Other Lies”

“It’s So Easy And Other Lies”
Starring: Duff McKagan
Director: Christopher Duddy
XLrator Media
Runtime: 86 minutes

Our score: 3.5 out of 5 stars

Based on the New York Times best-selling memoir and featuring exclusive archival footage “It’s So Easy And Other Lies” is an authorized music documentary of Duff McKagan- founding member and bass player for Guns N’ Roses, Velvet Revolver and other bands. The film chronicles Duff’s meteoric rise to fame and fortune, his near fatal struggles with alcohol and drug addiction, and his remarkable life transformation.

One half performance footage from Duff’s book reading at The Moore Theater in Seattle, WA and one half documentary consisting of archival footage and new interviews with former/current band members and friends. “It’s So Easy And Other Lies” is a unique spin on your standard biographical documentary. I really enjoyed the clips of Duff reading passages from his book backed by a band performing melodic renditions of such classic GN’R songs as “Rocket Queen” and “Paradise City” as it was a really cool addition which makes the film stand out from other films in the genre that I have seen recently. With interview from Duff, Slash, Mike McCready and others acting as segues to the performance material you really get a nice balance of music and dialogue.

Though I found some of the editing to be a little awkward at times as the performance footage tends to start and stop without the viewer really knowing where we are at in Duff’s story. At times it’s as though large portions of Duff’s story are either not expanded upon or just plain left out as is the case with some of the earlier days of Guns N’ Roses. Because of this gap and a few others it made things seem as though Duff one minute is a struggling young musician and the next he’s in the biggest band in the world. Obviously when a book is transformed to film parts are going to be left out or trimmed down but this seemed to be a really large piece of Duff’s story that sort of just got skirt around. That aside whether you are a fan of Duff and his countless successful projects or not “It’s So Easy And Other Lies” is an enjoyable film that keeps the viewers attention throughout its entire run time however, If you want a more in-depth experience I recommend picking up a copy of the book first and then check out the film.

There is no film that I think about Christmas more with that “The Muppet Christmas Carol”.  It is one of my all-time favorites.  The music, the Muppets, the Christmas cheer…couldn’t ask for anything more.  This film has also never looked better on Blu-ray.  Disney really gave this film a really nice 20th anniversary edition release with this “It’s Not Easy Being Scrooge Special Edition”.  Although, this release only included the theatrical version and does not include the extended cut with the song “When Love is Gone”. I am sure this is going to upset many folks but it is what it is.  This does though include a very sharp digitally remastered 1080p transfer with 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio.  I really though this was a nice upgrade for such a wonderful film.  If you are looking to get into the holiday mood, then cuddle up with some hot chocolate and get ready to sing-along with the Muppets.

I am going to turn this review over to Gonzo to give the official premise: “Greetings, holiday movie fans and culture lovers, I am the Great Gonzo.or as I am better known to fans of this classic motion picture-literary legend Charles Dickens.

I am a big fan of this special featurets included on this Blu-ray. One of my favorite extras on this Blu-ray is the “Disney Intermission”. This is a brand new bonus feature, which activates when the film is paused and leads into five classic holiday-themed songs performed by the Muppets Chickens and chums. There is an all-new audio commentary with Muppets including Kermit, Rizzo, Gonzo and many more.  Highly recommended. “Frogs, Pigs and Humbug: Unwrapping a New Holiday Classic. A Behind the Scenes Look” is a vintage featurette hosted by director Brian Henson, Gonzo and Rizzo and gives a nice behind-the-scenes into the making of film. There is a funny blooper reel included form the the set.  “Pepe Profiles Gonzo: Portrait of the Artist as a Young Weirdo” is a funny featurette on Pepe the King Prawn. Lastly, Gonzo and Rizzo take the lead in showing us how the holiday is celebrated in “Christmas Around the World” feature.

DVD Review “Drinking Made Easy: Season 2”

Actors: Zane Lamprey, Stephen McKenna
Number of discs: 4
Rated: NR (Not Rated)
Studio: Magnolia Home Entertainment
Release Date: October 2, 2012
Run Time: 614 minutes

Season: 3 out of 5 stars
Extras: 3.5 out of 5 stars

I was a fan of Zane Lamprey and his crazy drinking madness since the days of “Three Sheets”. “Drinking Made Easy” is a fun show but it definitely is not for everyone. This DVD contains all 24 episodes from the outrageous second season. I never thought I would say this is possible but after watching this show, I personally have no desire to drink ever again. If you are a fan of this show season three has already started on HDNet on October 3rd. There are thirteen new episodes airing from October 3rd. So the madness continues…if his liver can survive.

Official Premise: Join the “Indiana Jones of drinking”, Zane Lamprey, with his buddies Steve McKenna and Pleepleus as they tour the U.S. looking for the best drinks, drinkers, and watering holes. Each week Zane and Steve visit a new city and explore its history, nightlife, and the local drinking culture. They are on a mission to show what libations and drinking lifestyles this fine nation has to offer and, of course, to make drinking easy!

It is hard to believe that one person is able to do as much drinking as Zane does. This season he made stops in the following cities: Maui, Kauai, Monterrey, Key West, Miami, Tampa, St. Augustine, Savannah, Washington D.C., Baltimore, Newport, Cape Cod, Portland, Memphis, Nashville, Asheville, Charlotte, Charleston, Seattle, Vancouver, Spokane, Missoula, Santa Barbara and Aspen.

There is also no shortage of special features on this DVD.  There is a commentary track from Zane and the crew of the show.  There is the one-hour special included as a bonus episode, which is called “Ultra Premium Imperial Reserve Platinum Epsecial”.  Fun stuff, definitely worth checking out for sure.  Lastly, there are additional bonus scenes from a few episodes and also some extended interviews.

DVD Review “Drinking Made Easy: Season 1”

Starring: Zane Lamprey, Steve McKenna
No. of episodes: 24
Original channel: HDNet

Overall Score: 3 out of 5 stars

This show is about comedian Zane Lamprey explores the United States and the local drinking culture of their various cities. The format of the show is not too complex as he drinks pretty much anything. The show isn’t just drinking though as his friend Steve McKenna usually focus on eating challenges throughout this cities. After 24 episodes it gets a little bit repetitive but luckily each city has different options to offer. The show is entertaining overall but I still prefer the show “Three Sheets” which is currently airing on Spike.

Season one consists of Zane and his crew visiting the following cities Phoenix, Sante Fe, Austin, Dallas, New Orleans, Florida, Atlanta, Virginia, Philadelphia, New York, Boston, Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Louis, Kansas City, Denver, Salt Lake City, Boise, Portland, Napa, San Francisco, Las Vegas, San Diego and Los Angeles. Some of the highlight stops on the season come from New York, New Orleans, Florida and Vegas. The show also features Zane and Steve in a competition called “Six Six-Pack Challenge”, these were typical lame. Zane also tries to learn the history behind each location.

The special features on the disc great and jam packed. The first feature is almost an hour footage from the “Drinking Made Easy” Comedy Tour. If you are looking for deleted scenes you are in the right place as this has over an hour of deleted scenes. Unlike most deleted scenes they are worth watching. Lastly each episode has commentary from Zane and his crew, this is really funny stuff and adds a different aspect to the show.
