Game Description

Free Poker Solitaire

Poker Solitaire Challenge (PSC) is a very easy game to learn and trivial to play. All of the instructions you will ever need are given in the included pdf file. Familiarity with basic Macintosh operations is assumed.


There is no special installation required. Just drag the PSC folder to your hard drive?into the Applications folder (or wherever you keep such programs). If you like, you can make an alias of PSC and put it on your desktop for easy access. If you do this, default output files will be written to the folder containing the PSC original.

Two Challenges

Despite the name, there are really two challenges to overcome. The first is the game itself, the rules for which are described below. The second will be discussed later.

PSC Rules

PSC is a very old solitaire card game, updated for the 21st century. It comes with two levels of play and three different scoring systems. However, the basic idea, in all cases, is very easy.

The game begins with a tableau of 25 random playing cards arranged in a square, as shown in Figure 1 of the instructions. The cards are considered as grouped into (horizontal) rows and (vertical) columns and, sometimes, diagonals. Each group of five cards is taken to be a single hand of straight poker (with nothing wild).

There are eight different kinds of scoring hands. They are all listed in Table 1, in order of increasing value in a regular game of straight poker, i.e., as played in a casino. Individual card values run from ace (low) through king (high) but, as in regular poker, an ace can be high as well. That is, it can come after a king in value as well as before a two.
