Solitaire has been a staple of the Windows operating system for a bloody long time, and while Microsoft‘s latest take on it is essentially just a more visually appealing version of its predecessors, it’s soon getting a new levelling feature.

Announced via a video earlier this month, the levelling system will help players keep track of their mad Solitaire skills, which is weird but makes sense I suppose. You can get more details in the trailer below.

In other words, the more time you put into the game the higher the level you’ll get. So really, the higher the level you have, the higher the probability that you’re a pensioner or unemployed.

In all honesty, I’m weirdly partial to a game of Solitaire every now and then. It’s great for when you wanna digest a new album and do something that requires little thought at the same time. It’s also a really good way to simulate the retirement I’ll probably never have like the rest of my generation. Good times!

There’s no word on when the new levelling system will hit Microsoft Solitaire, but I’d wager it’s not far off. Along with your classic Klondike Solitaire, you’ll be able to level up in Spider, FreeCell, Pyramid, and TriPeaks Solitaire.

I, for one, can’t wait to become a high-level Solitaire wizard at wasting time.
