More games like Ski Solitaire / Fairway Solitaire?

Hi guys,
The wife can't get enough of these two - can you recommend other solitaire-like games with the same quality / gameplay?
Thanks.

Fairway Solitaire is from Big Fish and they have another one very much like it but just different enough to be interesting. It's called Avalon Legends Solitaire. I have them both and I like them.

OK, here's my list:

American Falls Solitaire

Heartwild Solitaire

Mondo Solitaire - this has 109 versions of solitaire. It's one of the first games I ever bought and it's very good. I have the iPod version but it runs OK on the iPad. Now, there's an iPad version, too, if you'd prefer.

You might look at Faerie Solitaire Mobile by Subsoap. It has the solitaire with sort of adventure theme, goals, etc. I like it. I never tried Heartwild Solitaire - it has lots of IAP, and that scared me off.

Mondo Solitaire is good for many variations, although I have one - I can't remember, but will attempt to find it if you are interested - with around 800 different solitaire games / variations.

I am figuring that you want some goals, like the ability to "buy" things to enhance the game, etc, and have not come across a lot of those.

An iPhone only (plays on iPad in 2x) called Lucky cards is multi- level tri-peaks variation that is very well done and should be worth a look.

I'll enjoy seeing other peoples suggestions.

Faerie Solitaire is decent, but the PC version is much, much better. They stripped it down to a barebones version for iOS.
