    Being an Old Timer, I lean more to the Old timer's games.

    The card games from Windows XP work just fine on Win8, IF, you copy them along with Cards.ddd and put them in a folder and make a shortcut to the desktop. I like Solitaire, but Hearts works too.

    Then I have a 22 year old game, MahJongg, that came out on a single Floppy Disk. It's a DOS, 16 bit program, but loads and runs on W8/32 just fine, but not on W8/64. While installing it on W8/32, the OS did stop and ask me if I wanted to Activate 16 bit support.....as soon as I clicked OK, the install continued. It's my favorite game.

    So, there's three more you can add to your list.

    MahJongg (1990)

    Darn, you guys must have too much time on your hands. I'm an auld phart as TM would say and have not even heard of most of these games. Heck Free Cell is hard for me at times.

    Combat Arms does not seem to work. I have tried everything I can think of. Anyone have any idea for a workaround?
