Solitude for Windows box cover

Solitude for Windows is a superb freeware collection of 91 solitaire card games for Windows 95/98/NT. The games include many familiar favorites like Klondike, Yukon, and Poker Solitaire. But the highlights are modern or rare solitaire games that are rarely found in most solitaire programs, including an excellent version of Bowling Solitaire invented by Sid Sackson and described in his book "A Gamut of Games". Other notable new solitaire inventions or rare versions implemented in Solitude include Icicles, Tam O' Shanter, Black Hole, Carpet, Moojub, Sultan, and Windmill. In addition, there's three new card games invented by the designer. My favorite of these is Four Kingdoms, which uses cards to represent various elements in a fantasy kingdom in an interesting way.

With so many new or rarely documented solitaire games, Solitude is a must-have for every solitaire fan. A nice user interface and concise Windows help file that explains the rules of every game nicely rounds out this cool underdog. Two thumbs up, way up!
