The Ace of Penguins is a set of solitaire games inspired by the ones available for MS Windows, but with a number of enhancements.

The package consists of the games Canfield, Freecell, Golf, Mastermind, Merlin, Minesweeper, Pegged, Solitaire, Spider, Taipei (with a level editor), and Thornq.

NOTE: If you experience problems with the F1 help key, please make sure you have package xfonts-100dpi installed.

The best card games in Linux. All in one type thing, it meets all the needs of downloading separate games one by one. Besides it has minesweeper. A classic. From the comments under my review I see a few people reviewed it as 1 star and said “I dont play card game”. So, if you don’t know how to play card games then don’t review. Learn to play card games first, people. Then rate.

Works great on any system if you have "xfonts-100dpi" installed.

An old favorite. Missing the online help so takes some trial-and-error to figure out some of the commands.

the package here is broken. I use the one from Debian Sid. Nothing breaks when you use Gdebi to install it when you click on "mirrors" at http://pkgs.org/download/debian-sid/debian-main-i386/ace-of-penguins_1.2-9.1_i386.deb.html. Thorq is my favorite. It is the opposite of "freecell". Play one for a while and then switch to the other to see what I mean. The function keys bring up the rules, if they are not obvious.

I wondered why this was still being offered if it was old and didn't work, so I tried installing it. The games all seem to work for me, but there are no instructions - if you don't know how to play them already you have to figure them out on your own.
