If you’re looking for some fun card games to play on your Microsoft device, you’re in luck! Microsoft offers a variety of card games that are both entertaining and challenging. Here are some of the most popular ones:

Microsoft Solitaire Collection

Microsoft Solitaire Collection is a classic set of card games that includes Klondike, Spider, Freecell, Pyramid, and TriPeaks. It’s free to play and comes pre-installed on all Windows 10 devices.

Each game has different levels of difficulty, so whether you’re a beginner or an expert, there’s something for everyone.


Klondike is the most well-known version of solitaire. The goal is to move all cards from the tableau to the foundation piles in ascending order (Ace to King).

You can also move cards from one tableau pile to another if they are in descending order and of alternating colors.


Spider is a challenging game that requires strategy and patience. The goal is to create eight sets of cards in descending order from King to Ace in the same suit.

You can move cards between columns as long as they are in descending order and follow suit.


Freecell is a game that requires skill and planning. The goal is to move all cards to the foundation piles in ascending order (Ace to King).

The catch is that you can only move one card at a time, but there are four free cells where you can temporarily store cards.


Pyramid is a fun game that involves matching pairs of cards that add up to 13. The goal is to clear all cards from the pyramid by pairing them up and removing them.

You can also draw cards from the stock pile if you get stuck.


TriPeaks is a fast-paced game that involves clearing the board of cards by selecting cards that are one higher or lower than the card at the bottom of the screen. The catch is that you can only select cards that are not covered by other cards.


Hearts is a classic trick-taking game that involves four players. The goal is to avoid taking certain cards (hearts and the Queen of Spades) to avoid getting penalty points.

The player with the lowest score at the end of the game wins.


Bridge is a popular card game that involves four players in two partnerships. The goal is to win tricks by playing high-ranking cards in each suit.

The partnership with the most points at the end of the game wins.


There are plenty of card games available on Microsoft devices, ranging from classic solitaire games to more complex games like Bridge. Whether you’re looking for a quick game to pass the time or a challenging game to test your skills, Microsoft has something for everyone.
