       AisleRiot  (also  known  as  Solitaire  or sol) is a collection of card
       games which are easy to play with the aid of a mouse.   The  rules  for
       the  games  have  been  coded  for your pleasure in the GNOME scripting
       language (Scheme). It is part of the gnome-games package.

       The following games can be selected from  within  the  program,  or  by
       using a command line switch:

       This text is taken verbatim from the AisleRiot Manual V2.12.

       Moving the cards is reasonably obvious.  Assuming  you  have  a  right-
       handed  mouse,  left-click on a card and drag it somewhere. Release the
       mouse button to deposit the card.

       If a card can be moved to the foundation(s), you do not  need  to  drag
       it. You can double-click on it and it will move. If a sequence of cards
       can be moved to the foundations, you can generally move the sequence as
       one move.

       Double  clicking  a  card  will  send  it  to  a foundation, if that is
       possible. This is useful for cleaning up large numbers of cards at  the
       end of a successful game.

       In  games  which have a stock pile you can redeal it by clicking on the
       empty space where it was. Be warned that some games  only  let  you  do
       this  a  limited  number of time. Watch for the Redeals Left message at
       the bottom of the window.

       A useful tip to know is that right-clicking on a face-up card which  is
       partially obscured by a card laid over it will raise it so that you can
       see what it is.

       There is an alternative way to move cards. By selecting Click  to  move
       from  the  Control  menu  you can click once to pick up a card and then
       click again to place it.  This can be faster than dragging and will  be
       easier  on  your  hand  since  you  don’t  have to hold the mouse down.
       However, it may take a while to get used to.

       Some games have options to change the  way  the  game  is  played.  For
       example  Klondike can be played with either single card deals or three-
       card deals. In these games there is a separate  menu  with  the  game’s
       name. You can only change the rules of the game at the beginning of the
       game -- the menu will be inactive during the game.

       Statistics on how well you have done at a particular game are available
       by  selecting  Statistics  from  the  Game  menu.  Only games where you
       actually start moving cards are counted. The statistics  are  here  for
       your  own  enjoyment, there are numerous ways to cheat and it is unwise
       to make comparisons.
