Ace of Penguins – a set of solitaire games inspired by the ones available for MS Windows, but with a number of enhancements.

The package consists of the games Canfield, Freecell, Golf, Mastermind, Merlin, Minesweeper, Pegged, Solitaire, Spider, Taipei (with a level editor), and Thornq.

Once you start the game, press the F1 or the H key for help on playing each game, just like the startup picture tells you to do.

Note that taipei (the R and J layouts) and test6 can be played by kids as young as two years old; my kids (3 and 5 when I wrote them) love them. They learn how to use the mouse, match pictures, and put cards in order and grouped by suit. Rebecca even plays the golf game occasionally.

The last version of Ace of Penguins is 1.4 released in 2012.
