This is a fun solitaire game, it’s different and it’s weelll spite-ful!

You play with 2 decks, and you can play against the computer, or play 2 people via the internet or LAN connection. Each player has 5 hold piles, and a side pile, and 3 center piles that you share [darn] with your opponent. The object of the game is to empty the side pile. Play is by putting cards on the center piles, from one [ace] to 12 [queen] kings are wild. As long as you have a play, you can keep going, if you use all the cards in your hand, and are still going, the game will give you 5 more. When you can’t play anymore, you must put a card in one of the hold piles, that will signify the end of your turn. Play continues until one of you empty the side pile.

There are 3 skill levels, “Take it easy on me”, “I Can Take It”, and “Ruthless” There is a peek function that tells you what is in your opponent’s hand; and while there is no undo function per se, there is an auto save button, which auto saves after each turn, so you can restore your game if you MUST undo.

This shareware game is good for 30 days, then it disappears. During the 30 days, it is fully functional. To play on the internet, both players must be registered.

This game was a lot of fun and the rules were pretty easy to understand. Check it out and see if you like it, I did!
