The government should put COMPUTER SOLITAIRE on its list of addictive substances. The three games offer the compulsive obsessive card dealer all the variety and challenge you can handle. SPIDER is a tricky deal, the nearest thing to a solitaire strategy and skill game. Played with two decks, it's easy to learn but hard to master. You'll recognize KLONDIKE, today's most popular solitaire game. But you'll be taunted by three skill levels and a unique scoring system. CANFIELD, a voice from Saratoga's past, will haunt you. Originally, you bought a deck for $50 and got $5 for every card played in the field.

This game is played with two decks of cards which are easily manipulated on the computer screen. Spider is easy to learn but difficult to master. This game is entertaining, challenging, and addictive. KLONDIKE - This is probably today's most popular solitaire game and is known by many different names including Fascination, Demon, and Small Triangle. Three levels of difficulty are available and a unique scoring system has been added to accurately reflect how well each game is played. CANFIELD - This game was made famous by the owner of a Saratoga gambling saloon in the 1890's. Mr. Canfield sold a deck of cards for $50 and then paid the player $5 for every card he played to the field. Our computerized version gives you the chance to see if you could have beaten Mr. Canfield at his own game.

The poorly formed ASCII characters are not used. - The games are played by using the cursor keys to point and the function keys to execute the desired action. - You can choose from 48 different screen color combinations. - All of the games have complex scoring algorithms which accurately evaluate how well a game has been played even if it is not won. - On-line help is available at all times. - Complete error trapping and automatic error messages if desired. - Multiple levels of difficulty. - A complete instruction manual.
