This program recreates the original 'board' game, where the balls must be cleared one at a time, by being hopped over as in draughts. The aim is to be left with only one ball, which must be in the centre hole.
However this is tough going for young children and their attention span probably won't last the game. Colotaire is a modified form of the game where the balls must be removed in order of colour: Blue, Orange, Cyan, Red, Cream, Black. Each colour must be completely cleared before proceeding to the next colour. There are six different solutions of Colotaire to choose from, each one being a solution of Solitaire.
There are further options available in the package including being able to see the solution being played out and playing back one's own moves. As well as a 'normal' mode there are also other modes (much more difficult), where a reduced amount of information is displayed or in the case of the 'daft' option, there is a confusing number of false balls. A small window can be displayed which keeps a record of the real balls - just in case you get lost.
