What would be better than 330 games of Solitaire? The answer is 1 Game of Solitaire that you actually have a chance of winning. I'd like to win at least one game an hour! Honestly, most of the Solitaire games available here are worthless variations that I have no desire to play. During the demo, I played most of the games in the Golf category, that were similar to Tri-Peaks Solitaire. I played a few different types and didn't win any of them so I finally settled for playing Golf of Egypt, for the remainder of the demo, and didn't win a single game, nada, zilch, 0 with a capital Z!

This game is by Magnussoft, the creators of Magic Cards Solitaire, Magic Cards Solitaire 2: The Fountain of Life, and Solitaire 220 Plus. If you have played the original Magic Cards Solitaire game, you will recognize the same exact music plus one. Because there are only 2 tracks of music that I noticed, (perhaps different in other categories?) it does become quite monotonous. You can choose from 8 card themes as a matching set, if you choose a particular face card, the back of the card comes with that selection. There are a whopping 49 Background colors to choose from, and I will admit that most of them have vibrant colors and beautiful graphic designs. My only question is, why stop at 49, bump it to 50, you're driving me crazy here!

There are several categories of Solitaire, Arizona, Bakers Dozen, Canfield, Carlton, Fan, Forty Thieves, Four Seasons, Freecell, Gypsy, Golf, Klondike, Pairs, Sir Tommy, Spider, Yukon, and Others. Within each of those categories, are approximately 20 subcategories or variations of that particular type of Solitaire. Obviously some have more than others.

There is one feature that drove me bonkers, if your mouse hovers over any card on the board, a transparent bar appears at the top of the screen, telling you how many card remain. Likewise, if your mouse hovers over the foundation deck, the same transparent bar appears to tell you how many deck cards remain. (not enough I assure you) At first I thought it was a cool feature, but then it just became annoying.

You can save any game at any point so you won't lose your progress if you want to try another type of game, and there is a Statistics Page that keeps track of your progress. (my stats didn't look so hot)

For me personally, this is a whole lot of nothing, many of the games offered come stock with most computers anyway. Perhaps if I had won more games, I'd feel differently, but I'm just not digging this particular game, however, I do love playing the first Magic Cards Solitaire game.
