Word Solitaire distribution permissions and end-user license agreement
W O R D S O L I T A I R E E N D U S E R L I C E N S E A G R E E M E N T
Word Solitaire is distributed as a shareware program, which means you can "try it before you buy it." You are free to while away the hours playing up to 45 addictive hands of the game. But at the end of the evaluation period, you`ll need to make a decision: either delete it from your computer or register it for $20.
Of course, nothing disatrous is going to happen if you don`t register your copy of Word Solitaire. But some good things will happen if you do! For instance:
* The 45-game limit will be removed.
* The custom dictionary`s add/remove buttons will be enabled.
* The 10-second shareware reminders will go away.
* You`ll be entitled to free upgrades to future versions.
Registering Word Solitaire only costs $20 -- that`s the price of a large pizza nowadays! But your contribution to the "pizza fund" will help me continue to write and improve shareware games like Word Solitaire. It helps pay for the game`s web site at
And it also gives you a chance to provide feedback and make suggestions for the game. You want all this, don`t you? Then remember to register Word Solitaire after you`ve tried all the games! I`m confident you`ll find that it`s worth every penny. :-)
Next, although it`s boring, you should read the following terms and conditions before using this software. By proceeding to install and play Word Solitaire, you indicate your acceptance of this license agreement and warranty.
