offline enjoyment. Visit the Solitaire home page for a complete index or select a game below. These games are built with Rajeev's Solitaire Engine which will be
covered in upcoming articles.
Take a break! Play a game of Solitaire
The oldest and most loved of all Solitaire games. Gained worldwide notoriety
when it was released with the Windows operating system, creating a whole
new generation of glassy-eyed zombies in offices around the world.
A popular variant of Klondike without a deck. Moderately difficult. Requires
some planning ahead.
Popular game in which all cards are initially face-up, making it more a game
of skill than chance. The game is moderately difficult as group movements
of cards are not allowed.
A rarer variant of Yukon. The layout is the same as Yukon, but the
allowable builds are different. Same level of difficulty as Yukon.
A two deck variant of Klondike. Easy to play but difficult to win.
A classic game with horizontally built piles. Since the original game is very
difficult, we have included a simpler variant.
The original 10 tableau game. All cards are face up from the beginning, so
you can tell if you have a shot at winning. Very difficult.
A variant of Fortress, with a similar layout, but with a slightly different build.
This game is not so heavily dependent on luck as Fortress. Moderately difficult.
The classic two deck game. Very very difficult. Recommended only if you have
lots of spare time and patience.
A cross between Yukon, Freecell,and Klondike. All cards are face up at the
beginning, but because you can move only the topmost card in any pile,
the game is quite difficult.
