In this barren world of flat design and antialiased text, don't you long for crisp lines and just 16 well-chosen colours? We certainly do. Rustling Broccoli presents a world first on your pocket computer: Solitaire for Workgroups, like the one grandma used to play. Don't get distracted by notifications, ads, or "Dark Mode", just stick to one purpose: putting all the cards in the foundation piles. The only advantage of this game over the real deal original back in the nineties is that you can stick it in your pocket and take it with you.


- a snazzy mouse pointer
- original Installation Wizard
- all the animated card backs you know and love
- certainly no ads
- definitely no tracking, analytics, or any other invasions of privacy
- many cool hidden surprises that will wow you and your grandma

This is the game for you. Download it now. Also, eat your leafy greens.

What’s New

Version 1.5.4

We have been awfully lazy, but finally, here's an update. SOL.EXE turned 2 years old on December 2nd!

* By popular demand! You can choose the card back style! Windows 3.1 asks for its dialog box back!
* This release hopefully fixes a pesky, rare, crash when resuming app! Sorry folks, this was a silly one!
* We also fixed score wonkiness on extremely long-running games.

Best solitaire game on the App Store

I'm either really bad at Solitaire, or it was harder in the olden days. Things weren't designed back then to press the reward button in your brain for advertising revenue. Either way this game is rated 5/7

Developer Response ,

I'm so glad your brain has found the pixels-reward-button. Coprime rating scales are great, too! Here's a broccoli: 🥦

Fresh, healthy and crunchy

I feel like I’m back in simpler times, when the resolution was low, the pixels were crisp and your computer wasn’t trying to spy on you.

Love it

Really great version of solitaire. Hit of nostalgia, perfectly executed. Rotation supports good too 🙃

Thank you for the kind words 🙏 Eat lots of broccoli and stay healthy! 🥦
