US based software giant Microsoft is celebrating 25 glorious years of its game Solitaire. To mark the day, Microsoft is planning an online tournament in June 2015. The gamers will be free to test their abilities in any of the games including Free Cell, Klondike or Spider against the rest of the internet.
A public tournament will be held in June and Microsoft will be hosting an internal contest among its employees. The contest began on May 18, 2015 and Microsoft will be following the same challenges from the internal tournament in the big contest on the internet in June 2015.
The deep details of the contest are still not clear. The original Solitaire game started off in 1990 with Windows 3.0 and since then it has been 25 years and the office people must have spent about thousands or about millions of hours playing the addictive card game on Windows that comes as an in-built game.
Solitaire has been popular among the Windows users, but Microsoft decided to take away the game from its Windows 8 and 8.1. The gamers of these Windows had to actively seek and download the Solitaire game from the Windows Store.
