date and the time.

unambiguously related a game number, and vice versa. Each game
number identifies a specific shuffle and thus uniquely

solitaire, numbered from 1 to 999,999,999,999,999. Any of these
game numbers can be selected.

scores (global score). Game statistics, player statistics and
performances feature attractive graphs.

small window that keeps track of all the cards in the tableau
and in the stock, showing which cards are face up and which are
face down. The card counter is updated at every move.

playing solitaires requiring a large play area.
