A difficult variation of Canfield where you build in suit, can't move sequences, and only get two passes through the stock. "Acme," the greek word for the zenith, was a popular name for companies who wanted to be listed first in the phone book until the Coyote and Roadrunner ruined it.
A one-deck variation of Fortyandeight where you can move sequences of cards together instead of just one at a time. With 40 cards in the tableau, you only have 12 cards in your deck which makes for a lot of unsolvable games. But with a bit of luck you can open an empty space in your tableau and then things are likely to go smoothly.
Thomas Warfield's combination of Freecell and Scorpion divides the tableau into two halves, one where we build in alternate colors and move cards by FreeCell rules, one where we build in the same suit and move by Scorpion rules.
An old solitaire game in which no building is allowed on the tableau. The secret to winning is to get extremely lucky before you abandon the game out of shear boredom or to play a more skill-dependent variation like Sirtommy instead.
This is just Beehive with a different user "interface": all the cards that would normally start in the stock are fanned out face up, with the ones that would normally be playable if you were going through the stock three at a time automatically raised up to indicate that they are playable.

A three-deck version of Beleagueredcastle invented by Thomas Warfield. Since kings can only be moved to empty spaces or the foundation, opening up some columns is the key to the game, except there are 12 cards in each column that need to be gotten out of the way first.
Thomas Warfield's adaptation of a 19th century game first described in George A. Bonaventure's 1932 book of solitaire games. It is two-deck game where 52 cards start on the tableau and another 52 start in the reserve. Suits of cards are completely ignored.
An two-deck version of Canfield, not quite as easy as Doublecanfield. "Demon" is the standard English name for Canfield. We follow Thomas Warfield in fostering confusion by using the name for this different game.
Ephemeral FreeCell is like standard Freecell, except that one of the cells will vanish after it's first use. Michael Keller invented this idea. You can experiment with different numbers of ephemeral cells.
This variation of Grandfather by Thomas Warfield adds difficulty by reducing the number of tableau piles, and adds strategy by eliminating the automatic filling of empty spaces, but it's still a pretty easy game.
The six stacks of six cards in the tableau are called "flower beds". You can build down on them in any suit. Instead of stock and waste piles, you have a bouquet of 16 cards, any of which can be played at any time.
Two decks, forty cards in the tableau, eight foundation piles, building down in the same suit. You can only move single cards. Often it feels like nothing is happening for a long time, and then the game works out after all. A good game for making you feel smart.
Thomas Warfield created this game as a continuation of the series starting with the traditional games Busyaces and Deuces. The number of tableau piles is again reduced, but now we can build regardless of suit so the game gets a bit easier.
Starting with one card in each column, build sequences down by alternate color. Deal new cards from the deck into all columns. When the deck is empty, gain a reserve area you can waive a stack of cards into.
A game with a seven-by-seven tableau, where three cards in the first four piles start face down. Unsorted stacks of cards can be moved around, as in Yukon, but cards cannot be moved to the foundation until they form complete sequences, as in Spider.
On the 10 tableau piles you can build down regardless of suit, but you can only move single suit sequences. When you click on the stock, one card will be dealt to each tableau pile. Single cards cannot be moved to the foundation, only complete sequences.
A game where we build both the foundation and the tableau in alternate colors. The big problem is the ten-card reserve, which can be played only to the foundation, which generally requires some advanced planning to achieve.
