Everyone needs a break from everyday life, once in a while. For some people, getting rid of the stresses of your day at work and home may mean gardening, painting, exercising, or cooking.

For others, it's playing games. If that's you, you might like to play cards or board games, and computer games.

A lot of computer games have a retro feel, and that's a good thing. You don't have to think too much to play chess against your computer, or to put Tetris blocks in their correct position, or play one hand of solitaire after another.

Here are three fun downloads the will let you play more than 120 games. They're free, too, so try them out, until you find the games that are right for you.

1. Microsoft Solitaire Collection

Solitaire is a classic time-waster that hasn't changed much in the last few decades. But it just got an upgrade.

The Microsoft Solitaire Collection for Windows 10 lets you play five versions of the game, including Klondike, Spider, and FreeCell. The graphics are nice and fresh.

Plus, you can customize the game, depending on which one you play, with one suit of cards, two suits, or four suits. You can play Las Vegas style, cumulative Vegas style, or standard. You can add sound effects, music, and more.
