Windows XP Easter Egg - Easier Way to Force Win in Solitaire

Select the 'Timed game' and 'Standard' scoring options, then play for over 30 seconds. Press Alt + Shift + 2 (above 'w', not keypad 2). This will end the game, add a bonus to your score, and play the celebration. After the celebration (which may be gracefully ended with a mouse click), you are asked "Deal Again?". If you select 'No', and press Alt + Shift + 2 at this point, your bonus will again be added to your score, and the celebration begins anew.

Not only do you win, you can accumulate a very high score!

Actually this egg does let you win the game, not just give the animation. If you play for about a minute then use the egg you will recieve a point bonus for winning the game! My highest score is now about 27,000 thanks to an easy start and this egg afterwards!

A quick note: I tried this and it only works if you're playing a timed game with standard scoring. If you aren't playing a timed or are playing a vegas style scoring you will only see the animation for winning your score will be unaffected.

you COULD just ignore the other comments. You are supposed to get some points on the board first. 15k X 0 = 0... play for 30 seconds, THEN do the egg, that will add up the points. Its repeatable after the first time, just click "NO" and then hit the key-combination again.

if you play a game for more than 30 sec and force the win it will ask you to deal again select no it will leave the game table green with no cards force a 2nd win it will add the bonus points from the 2nd win to your current game points makeing them much higher

if you looked at the other comments turdman, you would see how to get a hell of a lot of points. and to that 1337 guy, don't just force a 2nd win like that, you can keep doing that. i had nothing to do, so i got millions of points doing that

This egg only works with the left ALT key, but either SHIFT. I had problems at first because I was using both right-hand keys.

You do actually win a game if you play for long enough. Basically, if you clock up a score of a set amount (whatever that may be), you get a bonus according to your score. However, your score goes DOWN if you do not score any points every 10 seconds. This egg also only works when you have the "Draw One", "Timed Game",and the Standard scoring enabled. To see your score, you will need the status bar enabled as well.

People, you do win if you follow the instructions in some of the coments. As in, with points.

Maybe this was just chance, but both times after doing the cheat, the NEXT deal was unusaually easy to win even without cheating (Win XP home), going through deck only two times (draw one).

You don't actually win; you just see the end game cascading cards animation. Still cool, however.
