This was an early commercial instance of Card Solitaire. There are 8 different solitaire games, including Klondike, Calculation, and Three Shuffles and a Draw. You can also play "Aunt Anne's Tour" where you play all 8 in row, trying for the highest combined score, and 3 children's games. In addition, there are 10 different choices for deck art.
Excellent solitaire game with high historical value. In the designer's own words at MobyGames: Solitaire Royale is '...the first commercial instance of Card Solitaire on the PC and Macintosh. There are 8 different solitaire games, an "Aunt Anne's Tour" where you play all 8 in row, trying for the highest score, and 3 children's games. In addition, there are 10 different choices for deck art.'
Solitaire Royale is a solid card game that has very high production value, as evident from both 16-color EGA graphics and mouse support - something rarely found in a 1987 game. The user interface is top-notch: you can quickly jump from one solitaire game to the next by using the top menu bar, or peruse well-written solitaire rules or help on game mechanics. The games included range from the familiar (Klondike, Canfield, Pyramid, and Golf) to the more obscure (Corners, Calculation, Three Shuffles and a Draw, and Reno). The 'tour' option and children's games are excellent value-added options, although they are not as full-fledged as QQP's later classic Solitaire's Journey. Overall, it's the first commercial solitaire game that also ranks among the best. Highly recommended!
