I was wondering, does a particular game number refer to the same deal on different versions of PGS? I ask, because I save game numbers of spider games I have trouble with, and come back to them later.

Thanks, Robin.

The game numbers are always the same game. The game number algorithm was different in very early versions of PGS (pre-1997), but I believe that since then the game numbers will always be the same.

The only exception is FreeCell and related games, where sometime a few years ago (perhaps 2002), the game numbers below one million were changed to match the game numbers in the FreeCell game that comes with Windows.
