Solitaire

Solitaire remains the most played computer game of all time, and for good reason. Simple rules and straightforward gameplay make it easy to pick up for everyone, from age 8 to age 80.
Solitaire has been part of Windows for more than 20 years, and The Microsoft Solitaire Collection makes it the best experience to date with five different card games in one:

Klondike
This version is the timeless classic that many people just call "Solitaire." Try to clear all the cards from the table using one or three-card draw, while using traditional scoring or the Vegas scoring system.

Spider
Eight columns of cards await your attempts to clear them with the fewest moves possible. Start out playing with a single suit until you’re comfortable, and then see how you fare when using two or even all four suits in a game.

FreeCell
Use four extra cells to move cards around as you try to clear all cards from the table. More strategic than the Klondike version, FreeCell rewards players who think several moves ahead.

TriPeaks
Select cards in a sequence, either up or down, to earn points and clear the board. How many boards can you clear before you run out of deals?

Pyramid
Pair two cards that add up to 13 in order to remove them from the board. Try to reach the top of the pyramid. See how many boards you can clear and how high you can score in this highly addictive card game!
