Do you remember the classic Windows games from back in the day? Cruel, Freecell, Golf, Pegged, Reversi, SkiFree, and so on? For all the great AAA games that are now available elsewhere, there are only a few that can hold a candle to these nostalgic freebies.
Of course, the one game that rules above all others is Minesweeper. There was something insanely addictive about trying to reveal all the little squares without blowing yourself up.
While the fact Microsoft no longer ships Minesweeper as part of the operating system is a massive shame, it doesn’t mean you can’t play the classic game!
To play Minesweeper on Windows 10, you just need to grab the Best Of Windows Entertainment Pack. It’s available for free from archive.org.
It includes 10 classic games: Cruel, Freecell, Golf, Pegged, Reversi, Snake, Solitaire, Taipei, Tictactics, and—most importantly—Minesweeper. The app also includes MS Paint and an old version of Windows calculator. The app will run on any 64-bit Windows system thanks to its 32-bit architecture.
