Command-M, which turns on sading for the next move, to close to Command-N which is for a new game. After seeing some other solitaires that excel at simplicity there's a place for that , I was glad to find this program which provides an interesting visual environment. If the animation doesn't appeal, you can turn it off in the game options! Unless you are absolutely desperate to play solitaire, I do not recommend this game. Should you download, I'm fairly certain you would agree. This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.
Klondike Forever is an extremely attractive almost beautiful and well-designed game. What's most surprising is that this is freeware, not shareware. This game also gives you a taste of what their shareware product, "Solitaire Forever" would be like an almost endless supply of solitaire games. Yes, I plan on purchasing Solitaire Forever very soon.
The board and card layout is nothing less than outstanding. Large, natural and easy to read card faces the same as the Bicycle decks that you'd buy -- familiar and drawn to perfection. I can't tell you how many solitaire games I've trashed just because the card faces are silly, or busy, or they try to be unique and fancy, only to be difficult to read. Another big plus are the sound effects. They seem spot on most never get this quite right. I play with all of the wiz-bang animated effects turned off far too busy and distracting for my tastes.
However, I do like the way the cards flip. Not only does it perform this smoothly, it is also entertaining to watch. The game layout looks like the cards are placed on a piece of glass that is leaned against a green background is shown at a slight angle and perspective similar to the view one gets from actually playing a real game of solitaire. This enhances the entire look and feel. I immediately fell in love with the looks and felt right at home.

And as one adds cards to a growing pile, the pile adjusts smoothly and nicely to keep all the cards on the game glass board. For a very fluid and quick game of Solitaire on my G4 running Tiger, no less , this one just can't be beat. The designers knew what they were doing and what was important once one turns off the additional effects -- of course, many may like these effects.
I do have a minor complaint or two. While the preferences are beautifully designed as well, it is accessed by one button the only button icon on the playing screen that takes you to a separate preference screen. I would have liked to have seen a few basic control icons at the game level although there are adjustments one can make in the menu bar.
More significantly, while it does play very smoothly, it does so without anything else activating or working in the background. It seems to suck up all the computing cycles. One additional note: It has soothing, beautiful background music that you just won't find anywhere else that enhances an already gorgeous background and visual effects. Both games are must haves for me. Yes, it's pretty. But it gets old quick and can become irritating. The most distracting of the animations can be turned off background anims, card back anims, "fireflies" but it still does card flips regardless, and even the static background is irritating after a while.
If you just want something to look cute for a while, it's great. If you want to sit and play for a long time, find something more pedestrian and less likely to induce headaches. Login or create an account to post a review.

Double klondike solitaire game social advice
The game starts with 7 tableau piles containing an ascending number of downturned cards from left to right. The four foundations will be left empty. Before moving to the foundations, the cards can be temporarily placed on the tableau piles. The topmost card on the discard pile can be moved to a tableau pile if the topmost card on the tableau pile is in alternate color and an immediately higher ranking, for example, the 6 of spades can be moved to the top of the 7 of hearts or the 7 of diamonds. You may also move groups of cards among the tableau piles according to this rule and reveal the remaining downturned cards on them.
Only a K or a group starts with a K can fill the position of an empty tableau pile. Double Klondike is a two deck variation of the standard 7 pile solitaire game Klondike. Double Klondike looks and feels like regular Klondike. Instead of 7 piles in the tableau, there are 9 piles.
The cards are dealt out as in Klondike, 1 card to the first pile, 2 cards to the 2nd pile, and so on, until 9 cards are dealt out to the 9th pile. Only the top card is face up.
