31 Games

Even the long-beloved Windows games (such as Solitaire and Minesweeper) have been redesigned and enhanced with better graphics and sound effects.

The following games are included with all Windows Vista editions:

  • Freecell
  • Hearts
  • Minesweeper
  • Purble Place
  • Solitaire
  • Spider Solitaire

All the games except Purble Place (see example in Figure 3.34) were in Windows XP. This is a nice addition to the Windows games as it's great for younger users, 6 years and up. The three different games challenge your memory and matching skills.
