The Internet Archive has a huge archive of C-64 games available, complete with an emulator that runs in your browser.

Back in the 80s, I sold four different programs/articles to Compute! and Compute's Gazette. Three were utilities, unsuitable for this archive. But one was a game, called Monte Carlo, that made it into this archive! I wrote and sold this to Compute! back in 1987. They ported it to a variety of systems for the magazine, but this C-64 version is the original that I wrote.

The idea is to pick pairs of adjacent cards, which will then be removed and the rest will move up, not vertically, but right-to-left, wrapping at the edges. It's an actual accepted solitaire game that's unwieldy to play with real cards.
