Donald Rumsfeld (front R) sits on his C-17 aircraft on the ground at Prince Sultan Air Base, Saudi Arabia April 29, 2003. In a blog post on Medium.com, Rumsfeld wrote that he has spent the past two years developing the app of the Solitaire variant. The game, which he calls "an incredibly devilish version of solitaire," uses two decks instead of one, 10 rows of cards instead of seven, and an extra pile of "the Devil's Six" cards that players must sort as well from Ace to King.

Donald Rumsfeld signs a Baghdad road sign at the request of a U.S. soldier at Baghdad's international airport, Iraq, April 30, 2003. Rumsfeld writes that up until a few years ago, there were probably a dozen or so people in the world who knew how to play this game -- mostly people he had taught to play. "I knew I wouldn't be around forever," he wrote. "There was every chance the game Churchill so enjoyed could be lost to the ages." REUTERS/Pool/Luke Frazza

George W. Bush receives a note from Donald Rumsfeld given to him from Condoleezza Rice informing the president "Iraq is sovereign" during the opening working session of the NATO Summit in Istanbul, Turkey, June 28, 2004. The president returned the paper to Dr. Rice after writing, "Let freedom reign." After Rumsfeld was approached to turn the game into an app, he contacted Winston Churchill's family in January 2014 to ask for approval to use the family name. They approved -- Randolph Churchill, Winston's great-grandson, called it "a marvelous way to bring this back to life." REUTERS/Larry Downing
