Solitaire - ideas

I have been obsessed with writing a rules driven solitaire program for years. This is where the actual games are NOT hardcoded, but are 100% driven by a predefined set of rules stored in a flat file or database. For now I have decided to take a simpler approach, and start off by doing games that can be played by selecting individual cards as opposed to grabbing and dragging stacks (like you would in standard Klondike solitaire)

I currently have 34 games defined (variations of Golf, Pyramid, various matching pair games etc)…

Does anyone have a favorite Solitaire where to play you simply need to select a pair of cards that meet a particular criteria (must sum to 13 or must be +/1 in rank)

  • APOPHIS
  • BLACKHOLE
  • CHEOPS
  • CRISS CROSS
  • DOUBLETS
  • FIFTEEN RUSH
  • FIVE PILES
  • FIVE STACKS
  • FOURTEEN OUT
  • FOURTEEN UP
  • FRIDAY
  • GIZA
  • GOLF 6
  • GOLF 7
  • HERCULES
  • KING TUT
  • KLONDIKE 13
  • LAKE VICTORIA
  • NESTOR
  • NILE
  • OPEN DOUBLETS
  • PATIENT PAIRS
  • PUTT PUTT 6
  • PUTT PUTT 7
  • PYRAMID SEVEN
  • PYRAMID DOZEN
  • PYRAMID GOLF
  • PYRAMID
  • SQUARES & PAIRS
  • TENS OUT
  • THREE PEAKS HIDDEN
  • THREE PEAKS
  • TRIANGLE
  • XV

Shouldn’t you be doing this by yourself?

(I’ll show myself out…)

was that supposed to be a play on “Solitaire”? but not “Solitary” :slight_smile:

Thank you ladies and gentlemen, Kem will be here all week.
