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.

Tired of plain old Windows solitaire? Well, then it's time you played Klondike Pro! A game developed by Brooke W. Boering from 1996 to 2002, made in his own CEEMAC programming language, and probably the last project made in it, Klondike Pro is an experiment in 'Duplicate Solitaire'.

Klondike Pro has a storyline about being in the Gold Rush of the Old West. You compete against 9 other opponents, in an attempt to be the best Klondike player in the West. Each match consists of 6 hands. You earn 500 points for getting all the cards up to the top in a hand, but any draws past the first deck deal costs you points. You earn gold nuggets for 1st, 2nd, or 3rd, and lose some for any other place. But, solitaire is heavily based on luck. How does that work?

This is where the 'Duplicate' part comes in. Each person is given the same hand when they compete. This way, the luck is mostly eliminated. As you move up in rank, the opponents get smarter, using more advanced tactics, and your winnings get slimmer, forcing you to be more skillful and more consistent if you hope to get anywhere.

Klondike Pro is an amazingly addictive game, unfortunately, the current version only lets you get to Gold Fellow rank before it asks you to pay the $20 that had been previously charged for it. Even though the 2.5.3 version is supposed to be a freeware version, and says so on the title screen. I'd say this game is a prime challenge for any hackers out there. Hint, hint.

Summary of my opinion on this, if you like solitaire, Klondike Pro will tie you to your computer like nothing else, because there's nothing else like this out there! It's just a shame it only lets you get so far.

The website for Klondike Pro is here: http://www.baymoon.com/~solitare/KlonPro2.html

If you think you can get a hold of the author (I tried, but with no luck), then go ahead!

The main download is the latest version, straight from the official website (with the addition of TEXTTEXT.TXT from version 2.1), whereas Klonpro2.zip is from the archive I found, which, I think, is version 2.1, but I don't know how reliable that source is.
