MSN TV (WebTV) is an affordable Internet appliance, and as the name implies, it provides the ability to surf the web using a television. That's pretty cool, but unfortunately WebTV's capabilities are pretty limited. It doesn't have a hard drive or run any standard operating system, so downloadable games are out. Also, it doesn't support Java, so the large number of Java-based games are also unplayable on WebTV. The following list of card games that are playable on WebTV should be a nice start.
