Style and atmosphere inside the game:
GameHouse Solitaire Challenge takes a Spartan approach to graphics. The layout is a simple card table reminiscent of a casino, and you're treated to a simple animation of a dealer laying out the cards before each game. You can choose from four different designs to apply to the back of the cards. In this day and age, such a barebones presentation really doesn't cut it. Heck, even Windows Solitaire of ten years ago had nicer-looking cards that boasted animations too (does anyone remember the card shark deck where an ace would sneak out of the dealer's sleeve?) That said, the game's biggest strength is that it's ten games in one package. My favorite, aside from the infuriatingly addictive Spider, was Forty Thieves, which is like Klondike but with twice as many cards that must be stacked downwards in the same suit. If it's a straight-ahead card game you want, GameHouse Solitaire Challenge will do the "trick."
