Hi--has anyone ever won this game? I've been playing it off and on for months and can't seem to get anywhere--any hints? And many thanks----

I really used to like playing Fair Lucy, and posted a percentage of 46, with 23 wins and 27 losses, which is still on the list. I started over, thinking I could earn a better percentage, since I had become more successful at playing it. Then some people started posting 100% for Fair Lucy, which I consider impossible in the true scheme of things, so I quit.

I've found that when I can develop a strategy for winning a specific game, I can better my score. I did this in Spider Web in Action Sol, and while anyone could figure this out, apparently no one has done so, and I still have the top score.

My best recollection of winning Fair Lucy was to snapshot when I had an option of where to place the cards, and unsnap when my first choice didn't work. I also wrote down where the aces were, and started over when I came to a block, at least knowing where they were. I'm sorry I have no game numbers for you, but my computer failed last November, and I lost everything. I had to reinstall my XP operating system and start over. Good luck!
