Solitaire is one of the classic games on PCs that will put your strategic skills to the test. Albeit enjoyable, it’s a single-player game that is perfect for when there is a lack of company — until now. Microsoft rolled out a new Events system to the Solitaire Collection for Windows 10 in a move to break the, well, solitary nature of the game.

Microsoft said in the app’s updated Windows Store listing:

With Solitaire Events, you can play your favorite games with friends and other players from around the world and earn awesome new awards!

Events initially run for 24 hours each until next Monday, but the session will be limited to thrice a week every Monday, Thursday, and Saturday. Solitaire now allows players to compete with others from across the globe for limited periods.

The new feature promises rewards in the form of “bracelets” for points achieved and challenges completed. The first event, called Launch Week, concluded this week.

Your points and achievements will be visible on your Xbox Live account. Through Xbox Live integration, you can sign in with your Microsoft account to complete challenges, play the card game with friends on the leaderboards, and monitor your gameplay statistics.

Trouble following Events update

However, some Solitaire players have encountered troubles with the game following the update. For instance, some users reported problems when they tried to load any variant of the game. Additionally, only the menu button seemed to work for others.

Microsoft Solitaire Collection will not load game. Have reinstalled, talked with Microsoft Tech and rebooted and nothing has been able to make this game work. Have taken in to Geek Squad and nothing seems to keep the game working.

For those playing using their Microsoft account, Solitaire Collection stores your progress in the cloud to let you play the game on any device and pick up where you left off. The updated Solitaire Collection is now available to download from the Windows Store.
