Card Games for One
For the solitaire player, David Parlett has been collecting and inventing games for more than 20 years and here describes his favorites. They include games for one pack, two packs, and stripped packs; games of skill that test your intellect and games of chance that try your patience; games that lift you up and those that let you down; and games ranging from extravaganzas to minimals.
