Best Solitaire game for mac?

Hey guys, what's the best solitaire game for the mac? I only play klondike. I would like it to be quite functional, fun, and have a nice UI, similar to Windows Vista's Solitaire. I'm willing to pay if it meets my expectations. Any Solitaire for the mac that's as good as Windows Vista's? Any info is greatly appreciated.

Yes! Solitaire XL by Lavacat is, by far, the best free Solitaire app for the Mac. I've had this since day one.

I think you'll find that World of Solitaire (http://worldofsolitaire.com) meets all your criteria.

It works great on the Mac and is 100% free.

It has beautiful full screen layouts including large playing cards.

There are multiple decks, you can change the background, it keeps track of statistics, allows you to undo moves and more.

It has both the 'Turn 1' and 'Turn 3' versions of Klondike.

Also look into Ambrosia's Mondo Solitaire.

http://www.ambrosiasw.com/games/mondo-mac/

There is a video demo (link below) to show you how a game looks like.

It's not free, but it is "current", which means compatible up to the latest Intel Macs. They also have an iPad version.

I love Full Deck Solitaire which is available for free on the Mac App Store. It occasionally pops a small dialog at startup asking if you want to buy added games for it but one click and it's gone. Otherwise, the game is entirely free and it looks really nice, has a fun ending screen when you win and nice convenient UI for moving the cards around with ease. I never bothered to look elsewhere after finding this one because it seems pretty much perfect to me. The cards are really nice looking too. Pretty darn nice for a free game. At some point I really should pay for the added games, not because I want them actually but simply because this app is really nice and I have had many hours of fun playing it.
