New Game! New Leaderboard!

It's been nearly 10 months since I've last added a new game to World of Solitaire, so I thought it was about time to add a new one:)

You'll notice a new game called 'Bear River' is now available on World of Solitaire.
This game was created by the Levin Family and was requested to be added personally by the authors via e-mail.

I've also added the #1 most requested feature of all time.
A 'Highest Percentage Won' leaderboard.

This is calculated based on how many games you win out of how many games you played.

Therefore if you analyze a dealt hand before making a move and decide that it's not winnable (something easily done in Pyramid for example) then you can choose to just deal again and that hand won't impact your percentage won score. But as soon as you've made a move, if you care about your percentage won score you should try your best to win that hand :)

One last thing I'll mention is that I've made some behind the scenes improvements for players using the Firefox browser. Firefox users should notice that the site loads a lot faster after you've visited it once.

I hope you are all having a lot of fun playing :)

World of Solitaire - Problems Resolved

So I got back from my honeymoon last night.

This morning I had several e-mails from players unable to login and no statistics were being recorded.
Turns out I ran out of disk space.

I have corrected the problem and logging in and statistics all now work correctly.

I posted a blog post earlier stating it would take up to 2 days to correct, turns out I was WAY off on my estimate as it's resolved now :)

Enjoy playing :)
