Purpose

This page exists to help developers sort out and classify games included in Aisleriot. Specifically, we need fodder for the game selection UI bug (gnomebug:110730).

To Do

  • Find a rules reference for Thirteen (gnomebug:339803), or maybe just refactor the set of Pyramid Thirteen games a bit so they use popular (Yahoo, Tut's Tomb) options... (RichardHoelscher)
