Patience

No, I'm not running out of patience with Plusnet.

I have been playing patience on my phone and I get to a situation which appears to be a dead-end and I've lost the game.

However the game doesn't tell me I've lost just yet so there has to be a way out.

I roll back a few moves and arrive at a choice of two move options, I take the second option and complete the game Smiley

The point of this is that I got to thinking about the algorithms involved in this game and I'm suitably impressed at what must be a complex set of formulae which are way above my pay grade.

Re: Patience

I've noticed the same with Microsoft's version on W7. Doesn't always work out but many times it does.
