Dear Abandonia visitors: We are a small team that runs one of the largest DOS Games websites in the world. We have only 3 members of staff, but serve 450,000 users and have outgoing costs like any other top site for example: our servers, power, rent, programs, and staff. Abandonia is something special. It is a library of old games for you to download. It is like an old gaming arcade with all the old games in their original format. Abandonia is a place where you can find great old games and have fun four hours and years. To protect our independence, we are dependent of our friends using the site. We run on donations averaging around 6 USD (5 Euro). If everyone reading this gave the price of a cup of coffee, our fundraiser would be made easier. If Abandonia is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online for another year. Please help us forget fundraising and get back to Abandonia.

When Abandonia was founded it was to collect and present all old games where the copyright protection had been abandoned, hence the term ’abandonware’ and the site name Abandonia.com. We are still doing our best to keep the site open and free and will appreciate your support to help it stay that way.

‐ Thank you from the Abandonia Team

We are trying to make it easy for people in every country to donate. Please let us know how we could make it easier for you.

Please give whatever you can to help us.

Hoyle is a name best known for the various books that compiled the rules for numerous card, dice, board, and token-style games, also known as "Classic Games." Hoyle Volume 2 covers a wide range of Solitaire-style games, many of which few will have ever heard of, let alone played.

For beginners who may have never heard of any of these games, there are complete rules provided within the main game.

Hoyle Volume 2 includes:
Calculation
Strategy
Eagle Wing
Beleaguered Castle
Klondike
Canfield
Golf
Flower Garden
Scorpion
Spiderette
La Belle Lucie
Fortress
Baker's Dozen
Bristol
Eight Off
Shamrocks
Yukon
Eliminator
Slide
Bowling
Nestor
Aces Up
Gaps
Penguin
Pyramid
Triplets
Poker Square
Cribbage Square

All these games are single-player games. On the main menu, the player can choose between a Easy and Hard versions of any of the games, which determines the likelihood of having the right cards in the right order to win.

Because all of these games are played by only one person, the player should turn the in-game animation speed up to the maximum so that the cards are dealt out faster.

The mouse is all someone needs to be able to play the game; no keyboard commands are needed.

The sounds are on by default, but the in-game volume is set at the minimum. The sounds are nothing more than beeps, albeit less annoying beeps than in Hoyle Volume 1.

Hoyle Volume 2 is all about learning how to play a variety of Solitaire-style games, and being able to play them at any time without having to break out a deck of cards, shuffle, and hopefully remember the rules correctly.
