9780716021797: The Top 100 Patience Games

Made popular as Solitaire on computers, these are the real games, played with real cards. Find a flat surface and you can play anywhere. Maybe that explains its enduring popularity - Tolstoy, Dickens and Napoleon are just some of the great names associated with the game. From simple, soothing repetition to complex strategy games, some will keep the kids quiet while others are sure to test the sharpest adult minds. Whatever your standard, you'll find something here to relax, challenge and, sometimes, totally frustrate you. Just remember, you can't blame your opponent!

About the Author:

A chance question from her daughter started Jacqueline Harrod on the path to compiling 'The Top 100 Patience Games'. Browsing through the bookstacks of the London Library in St. James's Square, Alexandra asked how many Patience games there are. This led to a dedicated hunt, both in the London Library and also in the British Library Reading Room, for games. They were amazed to discover around 250 of them! From these she has squeezed the 100 most entertaining games into her book, ranging from the infuriatingly simple to those that can only rarely be taken to a successful ending. Jacqueline lives in Littlehampton with her husband, John, and their two daughters. She enjoys many literary hobbies, is a keen writer and has played games of Patience all her life.
