Games on the PC

I'm not into gaming at all but I do enjoy paying the odd card games for relaxation or just to pass the time.
I usually play Hearts, or Spider Solitaire along with Canasta (against the computer although occasionally against another player) and Cribbage against the computer)
Do any of you play these kind of games or something else?

Missus used to play a lot of solitaire... I did for a while, but found playing music vids on you tube much more interesting !  Wink

Aha - that's the benefit of having dual monitors.
I can play videos on one and games on the other Cool

Re: Games on the PC

I used to play Backgammon but that has gone from the included games on Windows  Sad
Just found this http://www.gametop.com/download-free-games/backgammon/download.html which wouldn't work and added a downloader without asking

Backgammon is still available on W7 but I think you have to play against other players over the 'net rather than the PC Sad

Re: Games on the PC

That is right but I want to play against the PC occasionally not against other players who would thrash me  Embarrassed

Re: Games on the PC

I know how you feel.
The same with draughts (checkers) now only with other players and not PC.
Titan chess is quite good.
