MSNTV (WebTV) Solitaire Games

MSNTV/WebTVWebTV is an affordable Internet appliance, and as the name implies, it provides the ability to surf the web using a television. That's pretty cool, but unfortunately WebTV's capabilities are rather limited. It doesn't have a hard drive or run any standard operating system, so downloadable games are out. Also, it doesn't support Java, so the large number of Java-based games are also unplayable on WebTV. The following list of solitaires that are playable on WebTV should be a nice start.

  • Ace Games
    Free, online solitaire otherwise known as a patience games or Klondike. Works great with all browsers including WebTV and Worldgate. You can play either "draw three" or "draw one" versions of the game.

  • William Kendrick
    WebTV Solitaire is a version of Klondike solitaire that does not require Java, JavaScript, Active-X, or Shockwave. One of a large number of high-quality games at Bill's Games. Beautiful graphics. Gameplay is a little slow the first game or two, as the card graphics are loaded as you play, but gets much quicker later on.
