Bring back the ultimate nostalgia of a pre-social media world with these retro-inspired playing cards.

Its hard for younger people to imagine that the world didn't always have Internet and that when you had down-time, you were playing this iconic game. The game was 'Solitaire,' and now with these cards that recreate 'Windows 3.0 Solitaire,' you can play the old-school game in real life. The original pixelated artwork for the 1990's game was developed by a designer named Susan Kare and in a collaboration with Areaware, they created these retro-inspired playing cards.

Celebrating the 25th anniversary of the game using this collaboration, it still features the same numerical font, as well as the same pattern on the back for full nostalgic effect.
