Gizmodo Toyland: Everyone's a Winner With These Windows 3.0 Cards by Susan Kare
August 10, 2015
Our Solitaire Cards by Susan Kare were featured on Toyland Gizmodo in a post titled, "Everyone's a Winner With These Windows 3.0 Cards by Susan Kare" by Adam Clark Estes.
"Practically everyone who used a computer in the 90s passed the hours playing Solitaire on Windows 3.0 at one point or another. Now, you can enjoy the game in real life with this deck of cards modeled after Susan Kare’s timeless, pixelated design. Even the box brings back memories. Susan Kare is probably best known for designing the original Mac icons, but she also worked o the early versions of Windows. Microsoft first included Solitaire in Windows 3.0 in 1990 as a way “to soothe people intimidated by the operating system” and teach new users how to use the mouse. However, over the years, the game has become an icon in its own rite, not only for its characteristically simple 8-bit design but also its legendary addictive quality. (If you’re looking something a little more modern, try these Windows 98 Solitaire cards.)"
