Start "Safari" on your Mac. Find the Google box in your window: That is the little box on the top right with "Google" written in it. Click into that box, type in "Solitaire for Mac" and hit the return key.

Oh, you are so helpful, and funny. Maybe I've already done that and have only found free trial, pay for versions and rubbish collections. If you don't want to help, don't bother posting.

I'm to assume that was for a different thread?
No. This thread was the target of my first post.

MacUpdate and VersionTracker are websites where you can download lots and lots of software, even freeware.
That's why I pointed there.

When I "switched" and wanted to play Hearts and Solitaire I went there to find me some replacement, and I even found it. But maybe you won't.

The other links were for introducing you to Mac OS X. Maybe you need them, maybe you don't, that's up to Tim to decide.

The first thing I did when I installed Virtual PC on my Mac Pro was play Space Cadet pinball... ah it brings me back to all the time I killed on my work laptop years ago while waiting for planes or holed up in a hotel in some nowhere town.

Oh cool, thank you very much. I had a quick look and couldn't see anything at first glance, hence my confusion. I'll have a root around. Thank you once again.

Maybe you have done that, maybe you haven't, so how is one supposed to know? Maybe the next time you give a bit more information in your posts. So what exactly have you downloaded that you didn't like?

It is annoying that apple only include chess. At least in the ye olde days they would include a game like bugdom.

Would it really hurt apple to make a solitaire and buy some other simple, time wasting games to include with osx?

I asked for a good place, not just any place. It should have been obvious to you that I was looking for recommendations from people who have found or heard of good versions. I'm sorry if I wasn't clear enough but I don't see why you feel it is your job to post sarcy unhelpful comments when someone dares to ask a question on an internet forum that you don't deem worthy of answering. Next time just leave the thread. Everyone else who posted managed to be constructive. As for what I have found, the only good one is Solitaire XL but it is only traditional solitaire, no hearts or other games and there is an annoying advert every time you close it. As for the rest that I didn't like, I can't remember their names as I deleted them straight away.

I second checking out VersionTracker and MacUpdate. Lots of free, shareware, and commercial stuff there. Can't vouch for this as have not tried it: MacGamesAndMore.

Or you may have to pay for something like this. The Apple Store usually has card games for sale.
