There was a time in the history of personal computing when everyone had Windows, and the basic set of games that came with it: Minesweeper, Hearts, FreeCell, and of course, Solitaire. Back then, few things were as exciting as dropping the last king in place and unlocking the celebration of a lifetime: a series of cascading cards that signaled a well-earned victory. It was basically the digital equivalent of making it rain.

As reported by Gizmodo, London-based developer Ricardo Cabello has created a site to let you experience that thrill whenever you want without having to win or play the game at all. Visit Click and Win! and do just that: click any point on the screen and "win"—a.k.a. simulate the falling card ending of the classic Solitaire game.

Some might say the true satisfaction is actually doing the hard work and winning for real, but those people probably don’t know what fun is.
