#1 Top Free Game in the Windows Store!
Download and play the latest evolution of this classic card game on Windows 8!

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, from age 8 to age 80.

Solitaire has been part of Windows for more than 20 years, and The Microsoft Solitaire Collection makes it the best experience to date with five different card games in one:

Klondike
This version is the timeless classic that many people just call "Solitaire." Try to clear all the cards from the table using one or three-card draw, while using traditional scoring or the Vegas scoring system.

Spider
Eight columns of cards await your attempts to clear them with the fewest moves possible. Start out playing with a single suit until you’re comfortable, and then see how you fare when using two or even all four suits in a game.

FreeCell
Use four extra cells to move cards around as you try to clear all cards from the table. More strategic than the Klondike version, FreeCell rewards players who think several moves ahead.

NEW GAME MODE - TriPeaks
Select cards in a sequence, either up or down, to earn points and clear the board. How many boards can you clear before you run out of deals?

NEW GAME MODE - Pyramid
Pair two cards that add up to 13 in order to remove them from the board. Try to reach the top of the pyramid. See how many boards you can clear and how high you can score in this highly addictive card game!

NEW FEATURE - Daily Challenges
Players receive new challenges each day. Complete enough Daily Challenges in a month to earn badges and compete with your friends.

Choose Your Theme
The Microsoft Solitaire Collection features several beautiful themes, from the simplicity of "Classic" to the serenity of an Aquarium that comes to life before you while you play. Now you can even create custom themes from your own photos!

Xbox Integration
Log in with your Xbox account to earn achievements, compete with your friends, submit your scores to the leaderboards, and track your personal gameplay statistics. Microsoft Solitaire Collection's new Play, Pause, Resume feature lets you pause your game, and resume it on any compatible device — all without missing a beat!

Premium

Premium needs to be fixed, tried the 1 month trial and would now like to buy the 1 year Premium but I no longer get the option to do so, it only ever gives me the 1 month for 99p.


Stephanie

Amazing game

This game is brilliant I love it and it makes me keep wanting to come back every day to play to win a medal. My aim is to get to GOLD!! :D


what a challenge

the hard games are taking ages, but the brain exercise it is taking to do them s awesome


Jim

Truly Awful

Once upon a time it was easier to play Solitaire on a PC than with an old fashioned pack of cards. Thanks to Windows 8, that is no longer the case. Buy a pack of cards. The games freeze for no reason at all. The app shuts down often for no reason. Move your mouse smoothly along a mousing surface and what happens - the cursor jumps and hops in a staccato fashion across the screen - to the point that you click the mouse when you estimate the cursor will be on the right card. Completely awful. Microsoft has successfully sent me to my local Apple store, where I've just bought a MacBook Air.
