Play Solitaire, Tic-Tac-Toe in Google Search

...

Mobile app stores offer more downloadable games than anyone could ever hope to play. But if you want to pass the time without squandering precious storage space, a simple Google Search will do the trick.

Type "solitaire" or "tic-tac-toe" into the mobile app or website to test your patience with two of the oldest and most popular games.

"It's been said solitaire's roots are in fortune telling," Stephen Cognetta, associate product manager, wrote in a blog post. "If that's true, today your fate rests on your quick wit and the luck of the draw."

Click "Tap to play" under the search bar, and choose easy (single-card draw and one-tap sorting) or hard (three-card draw and manual sorting). Then dive in, building four piles from Ace to King. Not every game is winnable; in fact, most games are unwinnable (at least in my experience). But the digital cards are cute, and the game is quick.

If you're looking for something more sociable, tic-tac-toe is available as a one- or two-player title; play against the computer in easy and medium mode, or "impossible" (but, as its name suggests, it's a bit of an uphill battle). Or challenge a friend to a game of naughts and crosses.

"For some other fun tips, try asking Google 'what sound does a pig make?'" Or if you're looking to settle a bet and feeling lucky, 'flip a coin' may come in handy," Cognetta suggested.

For the more athletically inclined, Facebook Messenger's games of basketball and soccer are still available to play with friends.
