An awesome game, aisleriot solitaire, is available for windows, though not as clean as it is on Linux. Not only does it have the usual klondike, freecell, spider, it has over 80 versions of solitaire total. Here’s some recommended solitaire variations:

  • Jumbo: This is a version of klondike, played with two decks. Takes a while, but it’s my current favorite.
  • Pileon: Used to be my favorite, and I also have a web version of pileon.
  • Eight Off: Similar to Freecell, but stacks do not alternate, and there are eight junk piles.
