So I have recently started playing a variant of solitaire called "Kansas"


and either I'm really bad at it (have lost dozens of times over past month) or it might just be very unlikely for a person to win the game. I was curious to if anyone had experience with it or any references to why it might be "unwinnable"

    The online interface makes it much more difficult than the actual game. It automatically moves cards to the foundation instead of letting you use them in the tableau. – L. Scott Johnson Jul 10 at 18:45
  • I looked at the rules and it didn't mention this, probably one of the reasons I took so long thanks for responding – javaseeds Jul 10 at 23:31

I won 1 out of 9 games. (I stopped with my first win.)

Note, that @LScottJohnson's comment is not quite true. You can "undo" a card moving up to the foundation. That was a necessary feature for the win that I got.

If you find Kansas very annoyingly difficult to win (I do), the website does offer the nearly identical game Rainbow which is easier to win.

    That is what I figured out as well - just won my first game a few minutes ago. – javaseeds Jul 10 at 23:23
  • Ah, thanks. I normally treat take-backs (undo) as cheating in solitaire. It's not a paradigm I'd give up for the "pleasure" of playing this, I think. :) – L. Scott Johnson Jul 11 at 19:15
