Back in the days when most computers used CRT monitors, we only knew of one computer game. A game that offered just enough distraction when you needed to catch a break. Even some office workers used to steal a few minutes of the company’s time to indulge in the game. Microsoft Solitaire is the name of the game. It is a card game built-in Microsoft. Microsoft started including the digital version with Windows 3.0, back in 1990. This is probably the only game computer students used to indulge in when the computer teacher was out of sight back in the days.
The game has managed to survive through the decades. Microsoft has even gone ahead to launch a new version referred to as Microsoft Solitaire Collection. Initially this game was only available to individuals owning or in possession of PC’s or laptops running Windows operating system. Things are about to change as Microsoft has announced that Microsoft Solitaire Collection is now available for smartphones.
Android and iOS users can now download the famous card game. To top it all the download is free. The premium version of the game will be available for free download until December 31 after which you will need to part with a small fee if you do not wish to have in-game ads.
For those who are not familiar with the game, it is based on a standard deck of 52 playing cards. The smartphone version will pack five different renditions of card games namely:
The mobile version of Microsoft Solitaire Collection will also feature daily challenges just as is the case with the PC version. Through the daily challenges players will stand to be rewarded with various badges and other in-game rewards. The beauty of it all is that the game also integrates with Xbox Live. You can now work towards unlocking the various achievements.
