With four styles of solitaire to choose from, card buffs may squeeze some fun from this cart. Most won't.
Solitaire involves complicated piles of cards, and in this game herding cards between stacks is frustrating. With more fluid controls, moving a red Queen from the deck to a black King in the leftmost stack wouldn't require you to flip slowly past every other pile.
The cart does offer some useful options for displaying huge spreads of cards on a small screen, and the on-line Help clearly explains the more arcane styles of solitaire. But its graphics and sound don't add much spice. Skip it.
- Clear out the smallest piles first so that you can replace them with Kings early on in the game.
- Before playing Calculations solitaire, turn on the Hints in the Options menu. The numbers next to each pile of cards tell you which cards you need.
