Of all the various card and solitaire games bundled with the various versions of Windows (or part of the Microsoft Solitaire Collection from Windows 8 onwards), which is your favourite?

Mine used to be the classic Minesweeper for many years... but the final level of the puzzle game Subject 13 (basically one massive, unskippable and unforgiving minesweeper map) has honestly put me off for life. :afraid: So it's Spider Solitaire that gets my vote.

And yes, I realize Minesweeper and Chess Titans aren't card games or solitaire, but if felt wrong not to include them. :p:

Mahjong Titans! I really liked playing it years ago (and I still do sometimes) - I was actually a bit addicted for a while

A few of my work colleagues are really into that (i.e.when our servers are down and we can't work until the problem's fixed, they're straight on there). :p: It's probably the one I've played the least though, for whatever reason. :dontknow:

I loved Solitaire and Minesweeper.
Honestly though, at the beginning I used to just click random boxes on Minesweeper and had no idea what to do. :lol:

Mahjong Titans! :woo:

I was extremely gutted when I discovered it wasn't in Windows as of Windows 8. :unimpressed:

If you held down the H key and Enter repeatedly, you could finish the game twice as fast! :lol:

I think I liked it because it didn't really require much thought :lol:

You can still get it on the Microsoft App store (under the name Microsoft Mahjong) - it's free, but you have to put up with annoying adverts. :grumble:

It really doesn't have the same feel somehow though. :no: :moon:

It always seems like with anything Microsoft now has to be dumbed down drastically to cater for the lowest common denominator. :unimpressed:

The classics: Hearts, Solitaire and Minesweeper (which isn't a card game lol)

I hated freecell with a passion.

I play tri-peaks, addiction solitaire and golf solitaire online (not windows), never play the new Windows ones

My dad loved spider solitaire though, rocked the 4 suits ones.

I always loved playing the Windows Vista's version of Minesweeper just for the awesome sound effects that came with it. :lol:

I love playing slot games. My favourite is Hercules Son of Zeus Pragmatic Play http://www.casinoz.club/game/Hercule...atic-Play.html. That game is awesome, especially for those who love myths as do I. Plus, it's available both in online mode and in download mode. I'm sure that it's optimized for the Note7. Try, you wouldn't regret

Solitaire Klondike, the classic. A very addictive game to spend the meantime and beyond that. The best game to kill boringness before I got my first console games.

It is a nice pasttime too - and very similar to Klondike. The only big difference is that the cards are playing from up to down, in Klondike it is vice versa.

My favourite was '3D Pinball for Windows – Space Cadet' but out of the card ones definitely Spider Solitaire
