Microsoft celebrates 25 years of Solitaire on Windows

Different games have different visuals and complexity. You can enjoy playing some of the very complex games like Grand Theft Auto V and you may also like mulling yourself over some very trivial games like Solitaire. The game that has been bundled with all the copies of Windows since 1990 is Solitaire. The game has turned 25 years in a year. Microsoft Company is now planning to celebrate this milestone in a very special way that befits one of the older games. 
The Microsoft Solitaire had debuted on the Windows about 25 years ago. The users have been enjoying this game for years and in order to honor it, two big competitions will be held. The first one will be an internal competition on Monday among all the employees of Microsoft to determine the lead of the leaderboards. In early June, the same challenge will be used in a tournament that will be released in the game that can be played with all. Users can also download the complete collection of the Microsoft Solitaire for Windows and Windows Phone to polish your skills. 
Before Farmville and Candy Crush became famous for doing time pass, Solitaire was the most played game. We can easily find many high skilled players of the game since this game has been used for more than a quarter of a century.  Also, Candy Crush will also join Solitaire as one of the preloaded games with the new Windows 10 that will hit the market at the end of the year.
