Most of us think of computer solitaire as that simplistic card game available via Microsoft Windows' default games collection. But did you know that the game was packaged with the first release of Windows 3.0 back in 1990? The Windows game was based on a solitaire variation called "Klondike" and was included in the OS by Microsoft as a way to acquaint text-based DOS users with the newfangled graphical user interface (GUI), introducing now-ingrained behaviors like drag-and-drop and double-clicking.

Scads of Windows users still play the default Microsoft Solitaire game, but if you are looking to take the solo card action up to another level entirely, check out SolSuite Solitaire 2013. With 570 (and counting) different solitaire games, 80 card sets, and 300 card backs, you can drag-and-drop and double-click to your heart's content, all at a now-discounted price of $9.99--a full 50 percent savings off the MSRP.
