Solitaire, baby! But I also like Golf solitaire, and the one where the cards have to equal 13. :D

That's Pyramid (although the Windows Entertainment Pack version was called Tut's Tomb).
15th-Mar-2010 01:26 am (UTC)
Yeah, the one I play is called Pyramid, too, though I know of at least one other game called Pyramid where the gameplay is more like Golf (and the tut's tomb thing... seems some people/companies call it whatever they want to. XD)

But, yep, that's the one.

it's a sort of solitaire, spider solitaire. :D

I'm a spider-solitaire person as well. I haven't made it past 2 suits, though.
15th-Mar-2010 01:17 am (UTC)
I prefer spider solitaire too :D

Spider solitaire is my time-waster of choice.

And now I am facepalming over the fact that I somehow completely missed 'Spider Solitaire' as an option, even though I was LOOKING RIGHT AT IT on the list. And play it more often than, say, Free Cell.

Pinball!!!

edit: okay I realize that's not a card game but I prefer to play it, lmfao.

Sudoku. ♥

Usually solitaire, but I go for free cell occasionally.

Okay, so, "solitaire" just means a one-player card game, and Freecell is a kind of solitaire. The one that probably you're referring to (Windows Solitaire) is actually Klondike.

Which card game I play depends on what computer I'm on- if I've got Hoyle Card Games installed I like to play Spades or Euchre. If not, Freecell is generally the card game I pick, but more often than not I'll just play minesweeper or kill time online.

Now, that I did not know. I've always seen 'Solitaire' billed as that one specific version, all the others have various qualifiers in their name. Of course, I am also relying mainly on my Windows experience here.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solitaire has some good info; if you're interested in more on this topic, you might want to pick up a book on card games.

Not listed, but I also used to play Minesweeper (yeah, I know, I know), and was hooked on a variant of Mahjong (I think it came with the Windows Entertainment Pack for Windows; IIRC, it was called Taipei or something).

EDIT: Well, I'll be danged, I was right! I do have a copy of that (along with other Windows Entertainment Pack games from when I had Windows 95)... wonder if I can get it to run okay on my Windows XP machine... >.>

EDIT v2.1: ...And now I'm dying to play this again, too... >.>;;;

CHIP'S CHALLENGE! I wasted so much a reasonable amount of my life trying to figure out the harder levels on that thing! Taipei was great, too. I must find my own Entertainment Pack...

Reading?
15th-Mar-2010 01:57 am (UTC)
If I have internet access, then it's always Internet Spades!
15th-Mar-2010 02:25 am (UTC)
I usually play Spider Solitaire (the one with several packs in the game), since I actually like playing that one with REAL cards ^_^
15th-Mar-2010 03:39 am (UTC)
I like Grandfather's Clock! And if I feel like making myself angry, I play Spider Solitaire because I'm terrible at it. :(
15th-Mar-2010 05:23 am (UTC)
Euchre! Clearly I'm from the Midwest, haha!
15th-Mar-2010 10:43 am (UTC)
I even pulled the pre xp solitaire from my VM onto my computer because I don't like the new pictures for the back of the cards :P so I have a pre xp solitair on my xp pc :D
15th-Mar-2010 01:37 pm (UTC)
How come my computer doesn't have the internet? Aaaaaah!
16th-Apr-2010 08:26 am (UTC)
I also sometimes go on Pogo to play Euchre with a bunch of computer players.
Or I just pull open a Sudoku puzzle. XD
