    Default Solitaire - stacked decks!

    Like a lot of you, I play Solitaire from Windows 7 from Winaero on Windows 10. I wonder how many of you might have noticed that often when first starting the game the following?

    When the game starts The fifth column has 8 Spades and the sixth column has 8 Clubs as the top card. This happens regularly, so much so it makes me think that the decks are stacked by the programmer. It happens too often to be random. Just interested in your observations as I do not think this affects the game, just a programming anomaly.

    That is interesting. But I had not noticed it. I don't play the Windows version very often. I usually play Aisleriot in Linux, which has over 40 different games, including Solitaire and Freecell.

    How is it better? I've never had a problem with Aisleriot.
    Non-system disk or disk error. Replace and strike any key when ready.

    Tons more games (725).

    Categories, "tour" where you can play a bunch one after other as a set, their choice or make you own.

    Change decks, backgrounds and such. Small cards, big cards, whatever you like.

    Works on Windows and Linux.

    I’ll put a vote in for Kpatience where the game Patience is called Klondyke.

    The problems we face today are because the people who work for a living are now outnumbered by those who vote for a living.

    We all have our favorites, I like PGS for the sheer number of games, Klondikes, Spiders, double decks, single, you name it, it has it.
    But whatever appeals....

    It certainly does look more featured but I'm not sure I can be bothered paying for that when Aisleriot is already quite enjoyable and costs nothing.

    Also I see no Linux option, only Mac and Windows...?
