A single-player card game.
There are many different solitaire games, but the term "solitaire" is often used to refer specifically to the most well-known form, called "Klondike". (Klondike and some other solitaire games have also been adapted into two-player competitive games.) Solitaire or patience is actually any of a family of single-player card games of a generally similar character, but varying greatly in detail. The games are more commonly known as "Patience" in British English while "solitaire" is the American English term.
These games typically involve dealing cards from a shuffled deck into a prescribed arrangement on a tabletop, from which the player attempts to reorder the deck by suit and rank through a series of moves transferring cards from one place to another under prescribed restrictions. Some games allow for the reshuffling of the deck(s), and/or the placement of cards into new or 'empty' locations.
There are a vast array of variations on the solitaire/patience theme, using either one or more decks of cards, with rules of varying complexity and skill levels. Many of these have been converted to electronic form and are available as computer games. Electronic versions include Klondike, Solitaire, FreeCell, Spider, 123 Free Solitaire, PySol and more.
