What is the best Solitaire game?

Well, in my opinion these are the three best games:

Solebon Solitaire - $1.99 - 35 variations of different games - Store Link || Lite Version || AppShopper

Solitaire City Deluxe - $7.99 - 60 variations of different games - Store Link || AppShopper

Mondo Solitaire - $4.99 - "Over 100 games and over 200 variations" - Store Link || AppShopper

I figured if I buy all three that's $15, which is a steal for around 300 combinations of Solitaire (albeit I bet some repeats) but these are three games that would get TONS of replay. Solitaire City Deluxe started at $8 and went up to $10 for a little bit then went down to $8 and hasn't moved since. Solebon Solitaire was only a couple of bucks so I'm not going to worry about price drops for this kind of game with tons of replay value.

Mondo Solitaire has gone down to a buck. I emailed the dev to see if he does a 3-day sale or something. If they say no, I might just pick it up at $5. $15 for all this solitaire is a bargain.

I like just a simple solitaire game w/o alot of frills, etc. So I got this one.http://appshopper.com/games/card-shark

Theres a deluxe version as well but this suits me find and its free. Originally had issues flipping (double tap) the cards but with the update seems to work fine for me. Its just one type game only but just right for me for quick plays. Probably not the BEST but still a nice one.

Thanks! Now I now that Tri Peak Deluxe is also called towers. I was interested in Solitaire City but I didn't notice the game because I wasn't looking at the Ms I'm going to Appsnipe it and get it at $5.

Touchmaster on the DS Those particular games I'm not too fond of but can't wait for most Touchmaster games to make it to the Touch!

Card Shark get my vote for being Free, working with drag and drop and being updated regulary. Tough, there is a bug right now in the game that make you unable to save settings. And the V. 3.3 is taking some long time to come.

Solitaire City would be the best if it would be at least cheaper.

iPhone OS 3.0 should have been the 1.0!

BTW I'm looking for one with a ton of games

I tried Sol City Free and didn't like it because I didn't like those particular games. The full version DOES come with 60 games instead of 5. If that was a buck, I'd be all over it
