Derek: "This is going to be great! Harry Potter, at Hogwarts! Is there anything I can do for you? Do you need any Famous Witches and Wizards Cards?"
Harry Potter: "I don't know... what are they?"
Derek: "Oh, they're the best! They're cards you collect and trade. And you can make card combinations that create magic!"
Harry Potter: "Sounds better than playing solitaire. I used to do that a lot."
Derek and Harry Potter in 1991[src]

Solitaire is a generic term used for any card game that can be played without any other people, the most popular being Klondike.[1] Harry Potter used to play this game regularly when growing up at 4 Privet Drive.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

  • Despite patience being the more common name used in Great Britain for solitaire as played with cards, the text still says solitaire even in the European version of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. This is likely simply a localisation error, though the term "solitaire" is more apt in relation to Harry's situation.
