Klondike is basic Windows solitaire (the game that comes with Windows).  It probably dates back to the Klondike gold rush of the late 19th century.  It is known by many names, including Chinaman, Fascination, Triangle, Patience, and Solitaire.  In England it is often called Canfield.  This version is actually a variation of the real Klondike, which does not allow redeals.


The earliest known reference to Klondike under this name appears in the 1914 book Lady Cadogan's Illustrated Games of Solitaire or Patience.
