Mac App Store

The latest version of (i)Klondike is 11.4, which runs on Mac OS X 10.6 and later on Intel-based Macintoshes. Klondike 11 was completely rewritten in Objective-C for Cocoa, Apple's latest framework for Macintosh applications. iKlondike 11 is a version of the same code base which is released through the Mac App Store and is available for OS X 10.6.6 and later. The previous (10.4) version is still available as a Universal Carbon application for both Intel and PPC systems running Mac OS X 10.4 and later.

Older versions of Klondike support earlier versions of Mac OS X as well as Macintosh System 6, 7, 8 and 9, in color or B/W, and run on any Macintosh computer from the Plus to the latest model. It allows you to play five different solitaire games: Klondike, Canfield, Golf, Racing Demons, or FreeCell.

Klondike 9.1 is an earlier, PPC-only version requiring Mac OS X or at least Mac OS 8.5 with CarbonLib 1.1 or later installed. This version of Klondike does not include the FreeCell game, but it allows the cards and layout to be expanded for easier viewing, if you have installed a suitable scalable font. It also includes a set of high resolution face card images, for a more pleasing appearance when the cards have been expanded.

Klondike 7.7.1, while it does not support an expanded layout, will run on any MacOS computer running System 6.x or later, including Mac OS X with Aqua (thanks to Eric Grant, author of FATCarbon, which allows Klondike to function as either a Carbon or Classic application automatically). Version 7.7.1 has been tested on System 6.x with the Mac Plus, and has been enhanced for compatibility with MacOS X and Aqua.
