    Windows 7 games for Windows 8



    Hi everyone.
    I was wondering if it is possible to download or play Windows 7 games (mahjong) on Windows 8? A lot of the 7 games I like but did not carry over to 8. I like the 7 versions better.

    Thank you in advance!

    You can get a version of Mahjong and Solitaire from the Store, some free, I did.

    I normally don't like to link to this site but this content looks safe enough that it shouldn't break any forum rules, Microsoft Games for Windows 8
    I'm running it on my 8.1 Pro 64 bit install. I haven't tried all the games, just solitaire and spider solitaire. I've had this game pack for a while and I'm not sure where I downloaded it from originally. MDL was likely the original source.
