Microsoft Solitaire became one of the most-played video game in the 90s and 2000s due to it coming pre-installed with all new versions of the Windows operating system. You’d be hard pressed to find anyone who’s never played it.

The game was revamped as Microsoft Solitaire Collection in 2012 for Windows 8 which evolved further with a Windows 10 release in 2015 and iOS and Android versions in 2016. The app was also available on Windows phone.

Microsoft Solitaire Collection features all of the basic functionality from Microsoft Solitaire but boasts better graphics, online leaderboards, more game modes, and support for Microsoft’s Xbox Live online service which enables the unlocking of Xbox Achievements, Xbox friends, and cloud saves between different platforms.
