    Windows Store install games


    Hello,
    Which of the Metro games should I download from Windows Store for the 11 games in Windows 7?
    -Chess Titans
    -FreeCell
    -Minesweeper
    -Hearts
    -Mahjong Titans
    -Purble Place
    -Spider Solitaire
    -Solitaire
    -Internet Backgammon
    -Internet Checker
    -Internet Spades

    In Windows Store I found many like Spider Solitaire I get many results so can someone give me which to download for the 11 games (Don't want Collection like Solitaire Collection)?

    Many Thank.
