Many of my Patience games appear on the internet uncredited, so I'm staking my claim to them here. I hope you enjoy playing them. Preferably with real cards, but if you prefer online, try Warfield's comprehensive Pretty Good Solitaire (where they appear by permission). See also my history of patience games, and Wikipedia for a pretty good summary of my analysis of patience games in The Penguin Book of Patience (1979).
