Windows 7: The New Internet Games in Windows 7

The New Internet Games in Windows 7

If youíre running the Windows 7 Beta and hadnít already noticed, we are introducing 3 new Windows Games for Windows 7.

Internet Backgammon:

Internet Checkers:

Internet Spades:

These games were well liked in Windows XP. Due to the amount of requests we received, we are bringing them back!

The new versions of these games have been completely redesigned and improved over their old-school predecessors. With each game, you can:

  • Play online against human opponents (up to 4 players at the same time with Internet Spades).
  • Select from 3 skill levels to be matched with similarly skilled players from all around the world.
  • If your opponent drops out, a computer opponent takes over to finish the game.
  • Choose from cool different backgrounds and piece/card designs.
And as I mentioned in my post about Games Explorer, you can track statistics for games played as well.

Tired of Minesweeper? Definitely give these games a try and join the thousands of other players online who are playing too. Iím actually quite addicted to Internet Checkers.

I had a go of checkers but my opponent left the game before the first move and the computer opponent was very easy to beat.

I've played a couple of games of spades but a lot of the opponents seem to leave at the beginning of the games. Not sure why.
