Description

Hoyle Solitaire is the Windows version of the MS-DOS Hoyle Official Book of Games: Volume 2 with the 28 solitaire games found in that old release, upgraded with new looks, sounds and mouse control. A Card Flick game has been added, the object of which is to accurately toss as many cards into a hat as possible in the time allowed.

Two versions can be installed on your computer at the same time. The Hoyle Solitaire HD (hard drive) game can be played without the CD in the drive, sacrificing only the music. Sound effects (shuffling and dealing cards) can be heard in either the Hard Drive or CD version. It plays in all versions of Windows released thus far, from Windows 3.x through Windows XP.

Most of the gameplay is "drag and drop" but playing a card in some of the games simply requires a right click to send it to the correct spot. Easy and Difficult settings can be chosen per game and you can undo moves as often and as far back as you desire.

Options allow you to replay the current game from the beginning, choose backgrounds, music and card decks. Up to 4 players can save their statistics separately.
