Poker Solitaire, also called Poker squares is one of the easiest solitaire 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; everything to make the game as accessible and easy to play as possible, plus comprehensive documentation and gameplay variations. 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 between the higher scoring American rules for the game; which score hands based on their chance of coming up in an actual game of poker, and lower scoring English rules, which score hands according to their difficulty in placing in Poker squares, (thus making a royal flush score far more in the American rules, and three of a kind more in the English). For vision impaired 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.

Enjoy a pleasant Poker puzzle!
