Classic or Traditinal Solitaire Game for Windows 8 computer

I am trying to locate a copy of the Classic or Traditional Solitaire game like the one that used to be included with earlier versions of Windows (up through Windows 7) to install on a computer running Windows 8 with Classic Shell installed.  Can anyone tell me how to obtain such a program and if such a program will run on a Windows 8 computer?  Thank you.

Hi,

 

This may be the one you are looking for:

 

   http://solitaire-windows-8.en.softonic.com/download

 

or this:

 

  http://apps.microsoft.com/windows/en-us/app/microsoft-solitaire-collection/1a36fd17-5161-4651-ae2d-1...

 

Actually there are many versions in there, including some paid versions.

 

Regards.

Invoke the search charm and type in solitaire.  Microsoft Solitaire is available in the Microsoft store for Windows 8.

Re: Classic or Traditinal Solitaire Game for Windows 8 computer

After considering the replies to my question, I have discovered that I already have the Classic Solitaire. It is the Klondike Solitaire included in the Microsoft Solitaire Collection that comes with Windows 8. Thanks for your reply.
