PySol is a collection of more than 1000 solitaire games.
Project originated in 1998 and was developed by Markus F.X.J. Oberhumer, before he stopped working on it in 2003. Final original version contains more than 200 games. Several fan groups pushed on the project and with time the PySol Fan Club Edition proved to be the most successful incarnation, featuring over 1000 games. CWF decided to host both original version and PySolFC one.
Games in PySol are divided into several types (French, Oriental etc.) and tens of subtypes. They include not only card games, usually associated with solitaires, but also tile games like Mahjongg. Game is fully customizable and player can change almost everything from background theme to toolbar position. There are save and undo options and also the complex system of hints. Pressing F1 reveals the rules for the game which is currently played.
Drasir-Vel : Actually now you can't download a Windows version of PySol, so i recommend you use PySol FC instead (see link above). It keeps a lot of stuff which was removed from PySol, and it's otherwise the same.
Pater Alf : Hmm, I installed the game, but it won't start when I open the file. I tried it with the compability mode for Win 98 and Win 2000, but still nothing happens. Has anyone an idea what could be wrong. For one time I'm sure it's not because my computer doesn't have enough power.
Chroelle : Sad to say but this handled very heavy, and I found nothing that really spoke to me. We have other solitaire games that are better than this one. I really needed somewhere where I could adjust the ruleset for the individual cardgame. It played with other rules than I am used to in Klondike, and that really bugged me. Only smooth thing about this game was that it had gotten my name from the computer so it already knew what to fill in to the name field before I did anything.
I did a search, and saw that you didn't have PySol.
PySol is my all time favourite. It has a massive amount of game types. And not to mention the music. It has many different cardsets. It has hint, and demo (autoplay) functionality. Version 4.41 has some things that were removed in the later version.
The official homepage is http://www.pysol.org/. Where the newest version (4.82) is. But it hasn't been compiled for Windows.
