While watching the Cardinals look ever more futile this evening, I managed to try out a few solitaire Piecepack games.

First up was Tula (ppwiki), which feels like a solitaire card game. This is an enjoyable puzzle game where you try to deconstruct a tower (temple) of tiles by matching either the suit or the rank with the last piece removed. There's some pathmaking and memory involved and it was a fine diversion.

Next up was One Man: Thrag! (ppwiki). A fun diversion, but too luck driven for my taste. There isn't much strategy involved - mostly a figure-the-odds and decide if you want to roll the dice to kill a monster.
