Subject: Place to donate/collect new Patience games? rss

Perhaps I've strayed a bit too far from the Solo forum, but, I am new here so I don't know. Patience doesn't seem to be too marketable a game these days, so I figured maybe we could compile our own collection? There are hundreds of versions out there, but I just unintentionally invented a new one (I was originally just going to use the cards for dummies, but they kinda took over. Still want a better way of scoring for it, though...) Is there enough interest for this to become a thing we can post somewhere? A recurring thread? Just seemed like a decent idea. While I'm being the new guy who suggests everything, how about a collection of the 9-card contest games. That's the coolest contest I've ever seen. And, for one last question, since I can't seem to find the info-- is the 9-Card Nano contest over for this year? Thanks to all!

'Patience' is the card game(s) commonly referred to as 'Solitaire', however, 'Solitaire' is the title of a classic/traditional board game. The terms are usually confused. ('Solitaire's actually a pretty darn good game, btw, if you like going solo every now and then. Would highly recommend it, should be easy to find it cheap. You don't know true solo AI until you've played this game.)

Ah, thanks, wasn't familiar with that alternate name for solitaire card games. I've played dozens of varieties. The only one I'll still play is the two deck game called spider.
