Did you know that your computer automatically comes with a few games that you can play when you have some spare time? There’s not many, but you do get the essentials. So, if you can’t buy any other computer games, you always have these few options to choose from!

Most computers come with FreeCell, Hearts, Minesweeper, Spider Solitaire and my favorite (and probably yours too), regular Solitaire. You can get to these games by going to Start, All Programs, Games. Some older versions of Windows may have to go to Start, All Programs and Accessories to get to the Games part.

Each game comes with different designs. For example, you can choose from about 12 different deck designs. There’s a frog, some palm trees, a fish, an astronaut and others. In Hearts, you can change the name of the other three “computer” users to names of people you know so it’s like you’re playing with your friends. And in Minesweeper, you can choose from different levels , from beginner to expert.

Those are just a few of the options you can choose from in these games. It’s just an easy way to spend those days off or to just give yourself a little break with some alone time games! But, most of all, it’s fun, so go play! : )
