Microsoft Solitaire Collection on Windows 10

Microsoft Solitaire Collection has just updated on Windows 10 and has fixed several bugs, most notably one involving a display error when playing Pyramid and TriPeaks with some Intel-based graphics cards and another that was causing some players to see blank boards in Daily Challenges.

The game has been updating on a fairly regular basis recently with a lot of improvements to stability and more bug fixes. The biggest update though, happened back in January when Microsoft Solitaire Collection added new game introductions for new players who were unfamiliar with card games beyond the basic solitaire experience. A new portrait mode was also added for players running the game on a Windows phone running the new Windows 10 Mobile operating system. A lot of features promised since the game’s relaunch, such as card themes, have since been added but others, like leaderboards, appear to have been abandoned altogether.

Here’s the official app description:

Check out the new look and feel of Microsoft Solitaire Collection on Windows 10! 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. Solitaire has been part of Windows for more than 25 years, and the Microsoft Solitaire Collection makes it the best experience to date with five different card games in one: Klondike, Spider, FreeCell, TriPeaks, and Pyramid.

This iteration of Microsoft Solitaire Collection replaced the previous version used on PCs running Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. It essentially started from scratch with a completely new design aesthetic and feels significantly different than the original. Microsoft Solitaire Collection is free to download and play on Windows 10 devices but players are heavily encouraged to subscribe to the Premium Edition which removes ads from the app and rewards players with more coins in the Daily Challenges. Currently, players can experience one week of free Premium Edition by opening the game and signing in with an Xbox Live account.
