Do time pass by playing Solitaire or Tic-Tac-Toe in google search

Google has never failed to excite its users with its search feature. I am not referring to the uncountable results its search engine generates, but to the humble home page – and the search app that is part of every Android device. In those early days, even before we got to know about Google there were a few games that excited the then computer users – the Solitaire and Tic-Tac-Toe.


Solitaire has been a part of the Microsoft family of operating systems since 1990, Windows 3.1 to be specific, though it was being played as a card game for more than 200 years prior to that. This is one game that tests your patience and concentration levels to the core. Tic-Tac-Toe is an ancient board game that first found its way into the video game world in 1952. For old timers, these were the best ways to keep boredom at bay and give that extra lease of mental alertness after a mundane activity.

If game of cards is not your cup of tea and you need a bit of adrenalin rush to get going, you can try the Tic-Tac-Toe game. Just type in “Tic tac toe” in google search and you will be presented with the Tic-Tac-Toe game as the first option in the results. You get to select the difficulty level from “Easy”, “Medium”, “Impossible”, and “Play against a friend”. The Tic-Tac-Toe is a simple game compared to Solitaire which is played by writing “O” and “X” to make a line before your opponent. While Solitaire, as the name indicates is a solitary game that can be played only by one person, the Tic-Tac-Toe can be played by more than one individual to keep the competitive spirit up.
