Some of games are unplayable, i.e. if there are no 2s, 3s, or 4s in rows 1, 2, and 3, respectively. Can those hands be excluded? I assume they're counted as a loss in the Stats.

If you determine that a game is unwinnable without making any moves, then starting a new game does not appear as a loss in the statistics. (Once you make a move, though, it will be counted as a lost game.)

It's not feasible to determine winnability in advance, but as Gregg says, if you can determine it for yourself before you move, you can avoid a loss.
