I noticed that Windows 7 has three of the four multiplayer games that were in XP (Backgammon, Checkers and Spades). Can these games be Imported into Vista? If so, can someone post a how-to?

Since Vista is my main OS with all my personal/work software installed, would be very convenient to have access to them without:

-having to boot into Windows 7 to play a quick game
-launching Windows 7 in VPC2007 to play a quick game (which performs very badly)

Since the Pinball game can be ported to Vista, I did try with Backgammon about two or three weeks ago, oddly enough.
Sadly, I was unsuccessful and even asked The Geek to put it on the list of upcoming articles. I haven't tried to play yet in 7, anyday now, anyday.
