Hi all, 

After playing a bit of solitaire (the card game) on someone else’s device, I was recalling that that was one of the prime functions of my OMP in the late 1990s. I headed over to UNNA to download some solitaire games, but both of the ones I have have 30-day limits. I installed Solito DX, which I must have installed some time in the past because the free trial period is over, and Solitaire by Stand Alone software, which is great but will expire in about 25 days. 

Before I go and try each of these and maybe some others, I have two questions:

1) Is there a “best” solitaire game for Newton? One that can be registered?
2) What are some other similar games for Newton that you enjoy?

I found action-type games (or emulated NES games) are a little difficult to play on the Newt, because of the pen-input. But things like Solitaire and Minesweeper seem perfect, but I’m open to suggestions.
