Summary
Games-card
Debian Jr. Card Games

A collection of card games, for the time being just solitaire, which are probably more suited to older children than young, although the "memory" type games in pysol may appeal to children just entering grade school.

Spider is delivered in two forms: small.spider is for systems without high resolution screens so the board will fit on the screen; round.spider has prettier card backs but takes up more room on the screen.

The default is round.spider. If you wish to use small.spider, either call it directly, or change the link /usr/games/spider to point to small.spider instead of round.spider.
