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.
Forty Thieves
The classic two deck game. Very very difficult. Recommended only if you have lots of spare time and patience.
King Albert
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.
