Everyone complaining about how it's still a Carbon version or hasn't been updated or whatever, but really... if you're anything like me, you got stuck on this game centuries ago. I first saw it when I saw my friend, with her then-new purple iMac, playing it under OS 8.6. Lo and behold, I too had it on my install disc and Eric's Solitaire Sampler became my time-waster of choice.

Moving to OSX, I tried a variety of other solitaire games but I couldn't get used to them quite the same way as I got used to this one. I ultimately bit the bullet and bought the OSX version.

While I agree that it could be better, or at least more modern, and maybe could be priced less... the fact that it's a Carbon application doesn't impede my ability to consistently lose at Klondike, and I haven't had any problems with the stability of the thing at all. Sure, it hasn't been updated, but it's as functional a solitaire as it was back when it was a Classic application... and that's all I was really looking for.

Ditto my last comment.

Too pricey and Carbon!

No trial download, huh? Well, screw that. I tried Eric's Ultimate a couple of years ago but found that the game rules were presented in difficult to read too small type rendered in an antique styled font, also difficult to read....and I'm not gonna pay to find out whether or not that has been improved.
I'll stay with the superbly designed "Solavant". It's got 240(count 'em) solitaire games(no wimpy easy games included, either, and allows one a trial period of 100 games...yes!

This version (3.0.1) has been out for a while. What is new here?

$29.95 for a carbon solitaire game for which there's no up-to-date demo or electronic download?

I don't think so!

Sheeesh!
Seems like this has been in various stages of development since OS X first showed up! Was a favorite before that, but has been pretty flakey ever since.

This version is VERY slow! Why cannot I use previous version to fall back to in case the latest one exhibits problems? I just don't get it!

Must we be subject to every new group of tweaks?

I'll wait for a final realease.

software expirations are useless and annoying thing. now that the developer is unable to deliver updated versions before expiration dates, this "feature" should be removed already!

two, the warning that appears at the launch of the app - everyone knows this is alpha or beta or whatever. maybe it's time to stop being annoying?
