Hi,

I've just bought a new laptop and it's come with the wonderful Windows 8. I've noticed that it doesn't seem to have any of the classic games that was always bundled with the Windows OS (Chess, solitaire, backgammon, etc). Are the old classics hidden somewhere? Or do i now have to download a third party version of these games?

Cheers in advance.

So with your answers i guess the answer to my question is that there are no classic (chess/solitaire/backgammon/etc) games included with Windows 8. Cheers.
