Harking back to the original Windows 3.0 Solitaire card game, Google is now making it possible to play the game via its search results, in addition to Tic-Tac-Toe.

According to an annnouncement today on the Official Google Blog, searches for “solitaire” or “tic-tac-toe” will deliver both games directly within desktop and mobile search results. (The announcement says the games are live now, but neither game surfaced when I did Google searches for solitaire or tic-tac-toe.)

Google shared an image of what the Solitaire game looks like on mobile:

The announcement also included the following animated image to show how Google’s Tic-Tac-Toe game works.

In addition to the new games, Google teased out two of its previously released Easter eggs, telling users to search “what sound does a pig make” and reminding them to try its “flip a coin” search feature that was part of the Google Search App updates from 2014.
