Microsoft Solitaire celebrates 30 years and tries to break new record

Before Fortnite there was … the Solitaire. This card game which was integrated by default in Windows 3.0 in 1990 is celebrating its 30th anniversary today. And if it doesn’t have as many players as the famous Epic Games shooter, it still claims more than 35 million players per month in more than 200 countries, according to Microsoft. Over 100 million “hands” are played every day in 65 different languages, making it one of the most played games in the world – although there are probably very few dedicated Twitch channels !

Besides the fact that it is simple to play and based on cards known to all, the first great strength of Solitaire is to have been free: until the arrival of Windows 8 in 2012, Solitaire has always been integrated into Windows. This would mean that over a billion PCs were shipped with the game preinstalled. A game that was developed by Wes Cherry, a developer who was then a simple intern at Microsoft.

Now available by downloading it for free from the Windows Store, but also from iOS and Android, the Solitaire intends to celebrate its thirtieth anniversary with dignity and Microsoft invites players to break the record for the most hands played in a single day. Fortnite may be prettier, we will see how many players will still play it in 2050!
