Before we come off sounding too smug, we had no idea either. EA-owned PopCap recently launched its own take on social card games, Solitaire Blitz, on Facebook. It's been doing quite fine for itself, according to AppData, garnering 240,000 daily players in the past week alone.

For all we know, someone at PopCap could have made them up on the spot today, but it's still neat-o. Think of it as a way of getting to know PopCap's newest game that much better.

Just so you know, those names are listed according to the image above, left to right. Our personal favorites? Hercules the Clownfish, Cuddles the Pufferfish and Noodles the Octopus. What can we say? We're suckers for irony.
