Goodsol Solitaire 101
We have released a new game - Goodsol Solitaire 101 is a collection of
101 of the best popular solitaire games for Windows. It can be
downloaded from http://www.goodsol.com/101 .
Goodsol Solitaire 101 is the latest step in our long term plan for a
complete redesign of all of our solitaire games. The first step was Most
Popular Solitaire (see http://www.moposol.com ). Most Popular Solitaire
is a collection of only 30 of the most popular solitaire games, for people
who only play a small number of games. Goodsol Solitaire 101 expands
this to 101 games and adds a number of additional features.
For the complete list of games and features, see
http://www.goodsol.com/101/features.html . All of the games in Goodsol
Solitaire 101 are in Pretty Good Solitaire, so this is just another smaller,
cheaper collection of solitaire games for those who don't want the full
variety that is in Pretty Good Solitaire.
However there is one new feature in Goodsol Solitaire 101 that is not in
Pretty Good Solitaire. Goodsol Solitaire 101 features a new way of
playing called "Climb Mode". Pretty Good MahJongg users will be familiar
with this as it is in that game, but this is the first of our solitaire games to
In Climb Mode, the first time you play a game you begin with game #1,
and each time you play you are given the next game in sequence (#2,
#3, and so on). There are special statistics for Climb Mode and a
cumulative score is kept, so that not only is winning and losing important,
but also the number of points you score. There are new separate high
scores lists on the web site for Climb Mode.
Climb Mode will be added to Pretty Good Solitaire in the future, but for
now it is available only in Goodsol Solitaire 101 (and Pretty Good
The trial version of Goodsol Solitaire 101 can be downloaded from
The trial version is limited to game numbers 1 to 30 for each game.
The full version of Goodsol Solitaire 101 allows game numbers of up to
over 2 billion. In addition, there are 34 bonus games in the full version.
These are variations in the rules of the original 101 games. For a list of
the bonus games, see http://www.goodsol.com/101/features.html
Goodsol Solitaire 101 is US$19.95 and can be ordered at
With the release of Goodsol Solitaire 101, we are also lowering the price
of the 30 game Most Popular Solitaire game to US$16.95. Most Popular
Solitaire can be ordered at http://www.moposol.com/orderonline.html
WHAT'S COMING NEXT
Goodsol Solitaire 101 is a part of a long term project where we are
completely re-building Pretty Good Solitaire in very flexible, multi-
The first step was the 30 game Most Popular Solitaire game and the 30
game first version of Pretty Good Solitaire Mac Edition.
Next up will be the Mac port of Goodsol Solitaire 101. The Mac version of
this game will be the next version of Pretty Good Solitaire Mac Edition,
which will be released very soon.
The 101 game list at http://www.goodsol.com/101/features.html will in
fact be the games list for the next version of the Mac Edition and it will
contain all of the other features as well (including Climb Mode and the
bonus games in the full version). This update will be a free update for all
registered users of Pretty Good Solitaire Mac Edition.
After the 101 game Mac version, next we will be expanding the number of
games to 200 and adding more features. While we are going to be able
to add games quickly, this is still going to take some time. Mac users can
rest assured, though, that eventually you too will have hundreds of
solitaire games available.
For Windows users, although Goodsol Solitaire 101 is very basic
compared to Pretty Good Solitaire, you can see what the future of Pretty
Good Solitaire will look like by taking a look at it.
In the meantime, Pretty Good Solitaire as it is will still be updated, and in
fact a new version of Pretty Good Solitaire is coming soon.
