Procrastinators everywhere rejoiced when it was discovered that Windows 10 was bringing back everyone’s favorite time waster. But unlike the last time you played Microsoft Solitaire on your PC, this time you’ll have to pay a subscription fee just to get rid of the ads.
Is $20 too much for a deck of playing cards styled to look exactly like the pixelated designs in Windows 98 Solitaire? Not a chance. As their creator Evan Roth points out, before the internet Solitaire was the only real distraction an office drone could rely on. So why not give it the respect and immortalization it…
Of course, Microsoft would be churning out more sculptures each day than new copies of Windows 7, but who wouldn't want a physical trophy of their proudest-ever achievement? And if you've never seen this Solitaire waterfall before—shame on you.
Playing solitaire's a nice way to pass the time. Playing solitaire in a gyroscope-controlled cosmos of twinkling stars is an even nicer way to pass the time. So download the gorgeous Awesome Solitaire app for iOS, free all weekend. [iTunes]
