Chess &c for PCs

A recent Windows 10 update removed my chess, solitaire and hearts games. Can anyone recommend suitable replacements? Don't mind spending a few quid to get ad-free versions.

Thanks for info.

Hello, Discorde! I have suffered the problem you describe on every major Windows update. A fully functional work around is here (at bottom of page): Windows 7 Games for Windows 10

This has worked for me on three separate occasions. Best of luck!

Without the need to sign up you can play against a computer (10 different levels) or sign-up and play against 'humans'.

Bit of thread drift, but I missed other items of Win7 such as desptop clock and other gadgets. They can be found by Googling 'Win 7 desktop gadgets download' (Sorry can't yet post URLs)
