Solitaire Virtuoso is an omnibus solitaire program for Windows, designed as a
companion to the articles on
the Solitaire Laboratory website. In development now, it
will eventually include a replacement for the obsolescent FreeCell
Pro. The version of FreeCell included will support variable
columns and freecells, allow the user to play Ephemeral FreeCell
(screenshot below shows a deal in progress with two normal and two
ephemeral freecells) and other variants, as well as related games like
Penguin and Baker's Game. Solitaire Virtuoso includes the most extensive set of game
and rule variations and playing options available in any program, and a
number of games found in no
other collections. It includes support for multiple decks,
and up to eight suits in four colors. It is small and portable, loads quickly,
fits on the smallest USB flash drives, and writes no files to the
Windows registry or any system directories.
Preorder now for $8 and get a prerelease version; the first full
release should appear in August 2011. You will be able to obtain all future releases at no extra charge. The prerelease version includes the following games (click on the pictures to jump to articles with rules and strategy):
