Microsoft Releases Integrated
Internet Solitaire

By Francisco Rangel

Redmond , WA - In the most recent update to Windows XP, Microsoft has added a new game to their collection of Internet games. Along with Internet Hearts, Checker, Backgammon, Spades and Reversi, they now offer Internet Solitaire.

The game is like solitaire, but with many exciting features such as allowing the user to play online with people watching. "I've never played solitaire for a crowd before, and it makes is so much more exciting," said Linda Behogensen, an avid solitaire player and current record holder for "Most Simultaneous Viewers" in a game of Internet Solitaire. "It increases the pressure of finishing quickly, and without making stupid mistakes."

The game also allows custom images for the back of the cards, so you can not only show off your Solitaire skills online, but also share your vacation pictures with those watching. The game allows rotation of 20 different pictures for each round, letting the user put on a small slideshow for the observers.

An internet connection is required to play the game.
