Windows 8 Games – Microsoft Solitaire Collection

Description

Note: New game features will be available at the launch of Windows 8. Support for ARM devices coming soon! 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 anyone. Just focus on clearing out of the cards from the table, or try to increase your score to rival your friends. 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 traditional scoring or the popular Vegas scoring system. 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. 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. TriPeaks Select cards in a sequence, either up or down, to earn points. How many boards can you clear before you run out of deals? Pyramid Pair two cards that add up to 13 in order to clear them. Try to reach the top of the pyramid. See how high you score in this deceptively simple and highly addictive card game that continues to increase in popularity! Choose Your Theme The Microsoft Solitaire Collection features four beautiful themes, from the simplicity of “Classic” to the serenity of an Aquarium that comes to life before you while you play.
