Killing Time is a uniquely thought-provoking solitaire card game. Its cards are based on the Dance of Death wood engravings of the great Renaissance artist, Hans Holbein the Younger.

I'm very sorry, but the game requires a monitor or LCD that is 1280 x 800 or larger. I tried to enter this info in the requirements field.

The impetus for this remake was to make the cards big enough so that you could appreciate their beauty and power while you played the game -- and not just when you reviewed the larger display only versions of the cards as in the CD-ROM version of the game.
