What is PySol ?

Obviously, PySol is a solitaire card game written in 100% pure Python :-)

Why yet another solitaire game ?

Hmm. What do you think about this:
  - based upon an extensible solitaire engine
  - currently supports 14 different games - expect more to come
  - very nice look and feel
  - unlimited undo & redo
  - load & save games
  - player statistics
  - hint system
  - demo games
  - support for user written plug-ins
  - integrated HTML help browser
  - PySol is portable across X11, Windows 95/98/NT and MacOS
  - distributed under the GNU GPL
  - full source code available
  - written in Python ;-)

Yeah, I know. But what's new ?

  - implemented support for plug-ins
  - option to automatically shade legal moves
  - added additional cardsets for low and high screen resolutions

Cool. Where can I get it ?

Point your browser to http://wildsau.idv.uni-linz.ac.at/mfx/pysol.html
Screenshots are available as well.

Also, PySol has been reviewed in the last issue of the Linux Gazette.
See http://www.linuxhq.com/lg/issue33/ayers2.html

What do I need to start playing ?

PySol requires Python 1.5.1 and Tcl/Tk 8.0.3. Both packages are
freely available for Unix, Windows and Macintosh.
See the PySol homepage for installation instructions.

Have fun,
