The Lonely Joker

The Lonely Joker is a collection of six different patience card games - Echelon, Napoleon, Cascade, Spine, Crapaud and Four in Hand.

The Lonely Joker was originally published by Jochen Merz but has now been re-released by RWAP Software.

The games are all pointer controlled, so you can play with a mouse on the Sinclair QL and includes the normal patience game which we all love, plus 5 other types of patience. You can select whether to turn the pack over in sets of 3 or single cards.

Excellent graphics and smooth play make this at least as good as the patience card game built into Microsoft's Windows.

The game is freely available (in a QXL.win file) as part of the QL-SD demo.
