I've recently tried most of solitaire packages for Puppy. I want a small and "smart" cardgame (Small and smart - That's Puppy). Seaheaven Solitaire works well, looks ok, visual effects is nice, and the size of dotpup is only 40 k.

tksol & xpat2 also offer several patience games. also you can download 100k card game extensions for firefox, or mozilla.

Dear Muggins

May I recommend Bubble Laughing

Seaheaven is hard in the beginning, but after a few games the brain is getting clearer. My sucsessrate is 43%, but that's not perfect at all. When it stops for me I click the autoplay button. Only twice of many the program wasn't able to finish the game (Seaheaven gave me victory for these 2).

Better luck in the next game.

Sigmund

i foound that also , and the lack of help hindered my understandiing, and then i clicked autoplay but it went so fast i coouldnt understand how it figured things ooout.
but then i hit autoplay, followed by undo multiple times, followed by redo and it stepped me thru how it moved cards, and blocks so i could see the programs successful approach ....and i acheived enlightenment

Hey guys!

I'll guess we agree that there are even more sophisticated solitaires than Seaheaven. But for its size, I find it "the best I've tried". To find other ordinary solitaires with nice gui and effects I nearly had to double the size.

Since I'm a really Puppy-fan, - Size matters. Very Happy

lior,

i checked the solitairecraving website, but found it a bit "clunky". this could be due to my sub-sub-56k dialup, or my ram challenged machine.

or it could be that the games there are written in java. if so why is java always such a resource hog? i hear of java being used in microcontrollers yet every java app i've ever tried works in slo-mo!

also the advantage of seahaven on your own 'puter, or firefox card extension, is you don't have to be online.
