Most Popular Solitaire
We have released a new game - Most Popular Solitaire is a collection of 30 of the most popular solitaire games. It can be downloaded from <http://www.moposol.com>.
We've been getting a lot of requests for a solitaire game from people who are a bit overwhelmed by the number of games in Pretty Good Solitaire. Some people just want a small number of games.
Most Popular Solitaire is a small collection of only the most played and classic solitaire games. The games were carefully chosen as the games that people play the most. You can see a summary of the features in Most Popular Solitaire at <http://www.moposol.com/features.html>. Most Popular Solitaire has almost all of the features from Pretty Good Solitaire for its 30 games.
If you already have Pretty Good Solitaire, obviously you won't be interested in Most Popular Solitaire. Most Popular Solitaire is intended for those people who don't want the full selection of games that Pretty Good Solitaire provides. Every game in Most Popular Solitaire is in Pretty Good Solitaire, except one. Most Popular Solitaire contains the new game Crazy Quilt, which is not in Pretty Good Solitaire (but Crazy Quilt will be in the upcoming new version of Pretty Good Solitaire).
Most Popular Solitaire can be downloaded from <http://www.moposol.com/download.html>.
Most Popular Solitaire regularly sells for the one time amount of US$19.95. As a newsletter subscriber, you can get 20% off Most Popular Solitaire by using this special newsletter coupon code: GOOD-NAMS-MPSX

A number of people have been having trouble submitting their solitaire statistics lately. They are getting "code 0" errors.
A code 0 error occurs when the game cannot access the internet. This can happen either because there is no working internet connection or because a firewall is blocking the game from accessing the internet. As people get more concerned about computer security, more people are installing firewalls on their computer (in fact, the latest update of Windows XP includes one).
With most firewalls, you will need to tell the firewall to allow the game access to the internet before it will be able to submit scores. This applies to all of our games that allow you to submit statistics, which includes Pretty Good Solitaire, Pretty Good MahJongg, Action Solitaire, and the new Most Popular Solitaire (Most Popular Solitaire scores are posted on the regular Pretty Good Solitaire scores lists at <http://scores.goodsol.com>).
If you get a code 0 error when submitting your scores, please first check to see if your firewall is blocking the game access. Most firewalls make it fairly easy to give individual applications access to the internet. Note that you can view submitted scores without giving the game access because the scores pages are regular web pages viewed in your internet browser rather than within the game itself.
Featured Game - Osmosis
This game is at Osmosis.
