Get a deck of cards. Take out the jokers. shuffle, then draw 4 cards. You can only use + - * / to make the total 24. The value of the cards are as stated on the card, so T is 10, J is 11, Q is 12, K is 13, but A can be used as either 1 or 11.

You just keep drawing 4 cards at a time until you run out of cards.

This can be played single player or multiplayer. In multiplayer it is best if you place the cards overlapping each other, then the person who gets it first must place their hand on the cards covering the cards before stating the answer. This is to prevent cheating, because once you get good at this everyone will be shouting "got it" the moment the last card is shown, you can't allow people to use the time between claiming to have the solution and actually speaking it out to work out a solution.


Another good solo game is microsoft minesweeper. Try to do the default large map as fast as possible. The fastest person I have seen did it in 110 seconds. That is incredibly challenging. The fastest solitaire I have seen is 53 seconds, but I think that is more luck based while minesweeper is definitely skill.
