SoliLuxe features several versions of the popular card game solitaire. If you like to add a challenge to your game playing, you'll enjoy this program. The versions of the game included with SoliLuxe are a bit more complicated than regular solitaire. You can customize the look of the background and the cards and even add your own rules to the game.
SoliLuxe is attractively designed and easy to navigate. There are many different card deck designs to choose from, and you can also upload photos from your computer to make a custom deck. We've played computer solitaire, but we hadn't heard of the types of solitaire that SoliLuxe offers, such as "Batsford," "Spencer's Fairy Queen," and "Babette." We selected the first game from the list, "Batsford." The Info button opens instructions for uploading images into the program and other customizable options. Clicking the question mark icon in the program menu opens a brief explanation of the selected game's strategy; further instructions are in the Options menu, which is handy. Not only does it describe how to play each game, but also its difficulty. You can peruse all the games' descriptions and pick one that suits your level of challenge.
SoliLuxe is free, and it downloads, installs, and uninstalls with no problems. This is a creative and multifaceted approach to solitaire. Solitaire and card game lovers will enjoy this program.

Best collection of Solitaire Games I've ever played. Seems like I've looked for eons for a collection that had all my favorites and I've finally found it! The ultimate in solitaire !! Thanks to the creators :)
NO CONS WHATSOEVER !!!
Downloads easily, sets up easily. WIDE variety of games to play, hour and hours of fun. Easy games for when I'm tired, more challenging games for when I'm not tired <smile> Love the format used for the help/rules for each game. Best I've ever seen in my 20 some odd years of computers. Can't say enough good things. Thanks again for offering this collection.
The assortment of games is great. I like the way the instructions are presented. The graphics are absolutely beautiful.
I miss having a score-keeping function. It only tells you-if you win-how your time compared to earlier wins. There is no function to tell your point score. If there is, I haven't found it.
It loads a little slowly, but it is worth the wait!!!
I'm back to download the latest version, and if it is even better, WHAT A DEAL! I think any solitaire fan would enjoy Solitude. I'd like to give high praise to the developers. Thanks for a great deal of fun at the ONLY price I can afford at this time--FREE!
