I have been playing the solitaire game "Twenty" now almost non-stop for a week and can't win a game to save my life!!! It says that it is one of the easiest games to win. What am I doing wrong??? I've looked for a website with tips or hints, but I can't find anything. Can anyone help me?? I feel stupid!!

Hello Dawn
I find i have won this 91 times and lost 144 times so it is not too hard
the only tip i have is to keep a look at the cards left and if you find a move that can be played to release a space do not play it if there are less than 20 card still to play and it will not be covererd up with the last deal
here are some of the moves i made for game 1961940352
2d right out, 2c out, qc right out,jc out,10c out,9c out,qh out.2s out jh out 3s out 4s out 5s out 8c out,7c out,3d out,4d out,10h out,qd out,jd out,10d out,
9h out, 9d out, 8d right out, 7d out,6s out 7s out,8s out,5d out,6d out,2h out,6c out
you now have only 15 cards in the stock so you know that the bottom right 5 piles will not get coverered up
3c bottom row out,3h out,8h out,7h out,5c out,qs out,js out,6h out,4h bottom row out 5h out and you can see now that there are only 13 in the stock and you can easily play the following cards 6h 7h 6d and 10s but do not play them
instead deal and you will find these are not covererd up then play these cards and you have 2 spaces
then any cards can be moved to a space but always try to keep at least 2 spaces so start by looking at the piles with the least cards to see if by moving one card you can clear the second one to regain your space so in this game the 10d and 2c can be moved to the spaces but the cards left behind can both be played.
20 is usually impossible if you cannot make at least 2 spaces after the last deal
hope this helps

Paul: I'm finally back. Lost all my scores and, very recently, got them re-installed. Couldn't start all over again. Call me gutless!
Any tips for Malmaison? I've tried getting sets with high cards on the bottom row but don't do much better. Bye. Audrey

Hey Paul and Dawn,

I tried Twenty again after your post and found it a very skillful interesting game. I cant believe the rules say it has no strategy. I think most are winnable but it takes some planning. You are right to plan on a couple of openings at the last deal. Watch the card falls and plan it out. Good quick game!
