"This is a computer solitaire game that doesn't play just one version. Pysol comes with more than 200 different varieties, ranging from simple matching-pairs games to the two-deck behemoths that can take over an hour and have you tearing your hair out. Whatever your particular fancy, brain-dead entertainment or serious mental stimulation, you will find a game for you here."

"The menus are broken down into the different game types or you can select a random game. This is great for those times when you don't know what to play. My favourite of the games is Pyramid. You have a pyramid of cards (hence the name) and have to remove pairs that equal 13. It's not as easy as it sounds."

"The game comes with a handful of card packs, but I highly recommend you download the add-on card sets. It's quite a big download for those of us still mired in the dark ages of dialup Internet connections, but it's most certainly worth it."
