To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Solitaire, Microsoft is throwing an internal contest to find the best players.
The employees who rank highest in the leaderboards will face off against players from the public during a June 5 tournament, said Microsoft. And yes, online Solitaire tournaments are the in thing.
Solitaire has changed a lot since it was first released on May 18, 1990. There are others such as Klondike, FreeCell, Spider, TriPeaks, and Pyramid in addition to the classic game, there are now others like.
These games, along with their cousins, Minesweeper and Hearts, have long been known as productivity wasters.
Solitaire was removed from Windows 8 — one had to download it from the Windows store. But it’s making a comeback in Windows 10, along with Minesweeper.
Plus, Microsoft is also giving Windows 10 one of the most addictive, biggest productivity waster games of all time, Candy Crush.
