If the next PGS will be using a totally new (or at least different) engine, this may be irrelevant. Or it might be worth looking into?

This only occurs if I'm playing two or more games of PM in a row (New game, after finishing one). When the initial row is dealt, one card (usually but not always the rightmost) "sticks" to the mouse-pointer immediately, and clicking the mouse pops it down to the bottom left, where the pickup/redeal's done, temporarily out of play. The first redeal will pick it up properly (maybe out of proper sequence, who knows?), and the game's fine after that until the next New Game.

Not a big deal, of course, since PM's almost totally non-strategy. This never happens with a first game, and nearly always with a new game.

And naturally it probably totally defies being reproduced by someone else. <g>

This game has a nice remark in the Help History, but right now I have no "Use for a totally mindless game".

Oh, no argument, Rachel. I'll play it at random, or even by choice, once in awhile, but between its being "mindless" and taking fairly long (20-30 minutes is typical for me) it's very rare that I'll play more than one game of it at a time.
