Chapter 10. Fun and Games > Playing Windows Games

Playing Windows Games

Windows XP comes with several games built in, from card games such as Solitaire and Hearts, to more strategy-oriented games such as Pinball and Minesweeper. In addition, you can access Internet versions to play games, such as Checkers and Reversi, with real opponents through Microsoft Network's (MSN's) zone.com.

Playing Cards

If your idea of heaven is sitting down with a deck of 52 cards and counting on the luck of the draw, you'll find Windows XP's card games to be right up your alley. You can play four card games: Hearts, Solitaire, Freecell, and Spider Solitaire. Each is played with a virtual deck of cards. In some cases, you click and drag cards to play. In others, you click the card you want to move and then click the location to move it to. In Hearts, the computer acts as the other player; in other games, such as Solitaire, you play against yourself.
