It’s been 25 years since the first game of Solitaire was played on Windows. To celebrate, Microsoft is hosting a tournament.

Microsoft employees get in on the fun first, with an internal competition starting today. Then, on June 5, the best of team Microsoft will pit their card-playing skills against the public in an online tournament.

The competition includes all the game modes – Klondike, FreeCell, Spider, TriPeaks and Pyramid. Better brush up if you want to take Satya’s crew down.
