Nice going Sue943. My dad just broke 100 for the first time with a 99. I'm waiting for a second wind.

Well done! Darn thing is - you can't help wanting to better yourself.

First, I think 4 suit is much better, but I switched after reading this thread and got an 87 the first day I played. My second best was 90. I think this way is almost completely luck, you just don't move any card that doesn't have a card under it until you have dealt all the cards and try to keep things in the best order possible til the end and then it is a crap shoot. Dumbest game ever. But I am slightly addicted

Also, Minesweeper is the greatest stupid game of all time, Bar None.

Hi. I scored an 85 a couple of weeks ago. I've also had four 89s. Just thought that I'd brag. Bye.

Just clocked in at 88. It's been a long time since I did that.

I remember someone who lost a game of spider by going too good. Cleared out all the cards but 9 and had deals left. She was forced to leave an empty space for the deal which, as you know, is against the rules. Game Over.

My high score is 1209. I don't remember how many moves it was. Is it always the same number of moves on the score 1209? Or can you get to 1209 in a smaller number of moves?

You'll score 1209 by making 91 moves, every time.

I finally got a 90 today so I thought I'd register and post. I even took a screen shot because I thought it would be rare. NOT!

As far as running streaks, I have a 66-game winning streak for the easy level. BEAT THAT!

Very good Sarge (speaking as a 95'er who can't rise about it!)

Ok, I have a question...what level is everyone playing?

I always play the medium level. Easy is just too, well, easy and Difficult should really be called Impossible in my opinion.

It's sort of misleading to post scores without stating how many decks you're working with. (Decks of cards, that is..I'm never really playing with a full deck... )

I go between easy and medium. When i loose too may times at medium I go back to easy, just to remind myself that it is possable!! Then once I beat that a few times I go back to medium.
I think the same as you about difficult Taesma! I've only tried it a few times, and never got very far.

Always easy. The point is (I think) that , yes, it is easy, but not to do it with a very low score.

You are all very bad, bad people!
I started playing it too after reading this (never played before) and now I'm suicidal because I can't get under 102 moves.

I always play the easy level. I haven't yet developed a good strategy for any of the other levels although I have occasionally played at those levels. I wouldn’t even know what a good score on those levels would be…

Is this game on this site somewhere?
If so, what part of the site? I assume not under games since I go in there all the time.

No, Amy, it's not on this site. Most computers come with it installed on them.

Check under "start" - "programmes" - "games"

I'm new to this game and I won on the difficult level (4 suits) in 242 moves. My score was 1058.

What I don't know is... is that any good?

Newslady, getting the difficult level out in any number of moves is a major accomplishment- I usually end up in a dreadful mess, and have never solved this level.

Oh, and welcome the the FT forums.

My record sheet shows me as having a 100% record on the one with four suits, with one win, so I am never going to play it again ( Did I mention that prior to getting my success that I reset it after each game I played )
