What is PySol ?

PySol is a free solitaire card game written in 100% pure Python.

Why yet another solitaire game ?

Good point. What do you think about this:

  - based upon an extensible solitaire engine
  - currently supports more than 40 different solitaire variants
  - very nice look and feel including multiple cardsets and background
    table tiles
  - unlimited undo & redo
  - load & save games
  - player statistics
  - hint system
  - demo games
  - support for user written plug-ins
  - integrated HTML help browser
  - PySol is fully portable across Unix/X11, Windows 95/98/NT and MacOS
  - distributed under the GNU GPL with full source code

Yeah, I know. But what's new ?

  * As compared to the previous stable version 2.14 this release
    includes more than 20 new solitaire variations and an
    incredible number of other improvements.

Cool. Where can I get it ?

Point your browser to
The PySol Gallery is awaiting your visit as well.

What do I need to start playing ?

PySol requires Python 1.5.2 and Tcl/Tk 8.0.5. Both packages are
freely available for Unix, Windows and Macintosh.

BTW, there is no need to compile anything since the whole program is just
a Python script. Just run it, and that's all.


I'm looking for people who want to contibute new games, provide
additional graphics, scan cardset packs, improve the docs, etc.
Please see the README in the distribution about details.

Have fun,
