Woe is me! I've hit a dead end with game number 426775649. Does anyone know if this is a winnable game? My best effort has left me with 32 cards still in the waste pile.

Bill, I can't tell you how I did it, but yes, this is a winnable game! My strategy was to uncover all the cards first, and then worry about the waste pile. Good luck!

Thomas, if Rank and File and Number 10 are almost exactly the same game, why can you take back cards from the foundations and put them back into play with Number 10, but you can't do that with Rank and File? Is that a glitch, or is it meant to be that way? The rules don't delineate any difference. Thanks! Ken

Yes, the games are very similar. Whether you can move cards back from the foundations is based on how the games were programmed, and in this case it looks like they were programmed differently. Both games were done a long time ago before I got more consistent on things like this.

Paul or Jax Ken, Can you help me out with Rank and File #1794292864? The biggest problem that I see is that the 3 of diamonds and both of the three of hearts are stuck in the waste pile at the beginning of the game. Can you guys win it? Thanks, Tpa Ken

Hi Ken
