Description:

With this collection of 96 different versions of solitaire, players of every level will find plenty of variations to keep themselves entertained for hours. Beginners can enjoy the simple Baker’s Dozen and Magnolia Tree. Those with more experience can try Alhambra, a tricky double-deck game. If a couple of card experts meet up, they can match wits playing the more complex Russian Bank, a battle for two that shows that “solitaire” needn’t be “solitary.” For each game, there’s information on its origins, the number of decks needed, playing time, and degree of difficulty. Game lovers will agree: this goldmine of games is packed with fun.
