Is this one winnable. Been working it for a long time now. I have 139 wins with no losses and I don't want to quit.

I'm getting negative vibes from this one too Melissa. Two consecutive twos of clubs followed by two consecutive queens of clubs in the last column seem like an immovable barrier. My best effort so far has been a score of just nine. Maybe Ken or Mike will be able to do better. I'll keep working at it, but I'm not hopeful.

Not me. You know I don't do well at these games. I tried, but ran into road blocks. That's not unusual for me. Then one of you solve it and it looks easy.

I can get all of the clubs out of the last column which is essential (I think), but it causes more problems than it solves. I've spent some more time on it without any improvement.

I'm beginning to think that this game MAY be winnable. I can get all of the aces onto the foundations with a score of 12. I have one card in the wrong place that's stopping a few more from coming out. Come on Ken, let's see if we can beat it.

Posting the best effort to date. Score 22, with just the six of spades preventing several key cards from moving. Any help would be appreciated.

Well done Richard. Once again I guess I should read the rules. Didn't know you take cards off the Ace stack and replay them. It would not have mattered in my case anyway. These games are beyond me.

I didn't know that myself until I tried it. It's something that could obviously come in handy.

Oh nuts... I already gave up and started a new game anyway. Thanks for all your effort. I can't decipher the "solution" anyways! LOL. ()
