 Cyna Games > What is Tepui Solitaires?


Solitaires is a very large collection of solitaire card games. The current version (7.0) is made up of 385 different solitaires, including all the traditional ones (as Baker's Dozen, Canfield, Fan, Klondike, Montecarlo, Poker Solitaire, Spider, Pyramid, and so on) and many that appear for the first time in a computer game (as Babette, Backbone, Fission, Flip Flop, Great Herring-bone, Hill of Difficulty, Moojub, Pendulum, Robin Post, Striptease and so on).

Solitaires was originally developped by Tepui Products, an Italian company, who made an exciting product which Cyna Games gladly acquired when the developer wished to retire. We at Cyna Games are not (for now) involved in the making of this game. Its purchase does not entitle you to forum access at Cyna Games, which is only for Kyodai Mahjongg customers. It offers, however, 385 games for $19.95, and free updates forever, which is to say, a bargain!

With version 5.0, Solitaires has undergone a major overhaul. The code has been thoroughly reviewed and many parts have been rewritten altogether. The resulting improvements and the added features are so many that it is impossible to mention them all. Please click here for the latest news.

Solitaires is powered by two engines (graphical and logical) that are efficient, robust and quite sophisticated. They provide excellent graphics and animation.

Solitaires can generate a million billion different shuffles for each solitaire, which means that if you could play a game every second, twenty-four hours a day, you could expect to replay the same game after 33 million years or so!
