Finally (some) piece of mind with My Pocket Solitaire

This post continues My Pocket Solitaire series. Previously I have been writing about My Pocket Solitaire and how it has been coming back to me several times over the years.

History of me and My Pocket Solitaire (Peg Solitaire)

Minesweeper goes web
