Poker Solitare, also known as Poker squares is one of the easiest solitare games to understand and play, yet slightly less easy in it's execution. The principle is simple and resembles that used in BG Cribbage Solitare A player turns up cards from the pack and places them in a 5 by 5 grid. In the grid, each vertical column and horizontal row of cards will form a 5 card poker hand. The object therefore, is to place the cards to best advantage in order to form the highest possible 10 poker hands, a task which will take skill, luck, and a mind for sacrifice.
The BG version, as with all Bg titles contains what you would expect to make the game as accessible and easy to play as possible. All text is output to Microsoft sapi, and a variety of keys exist for exploring the grid as well as scoring the different poker hands. In addition, it's possible to choose the British or American scoring system for Poker as well. For vision impared players, the cards are magnified and the game can be played with a maximized window, and for everyone the game can play midi music in the background while it is running.
