"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
"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."
