It's not hard to prove that an unsolvable start exists. Just imagine a start where the only possible first moves would be moving cards to the extra cells. In some versions, -1 and -2 are examples of this though the only way to play them is to choose that seed. If you only count setups which can exist in normal play, seed 11982 in the Windows version is an ...

Technically, one In FreeCell, you are only allowed to move 1 card at a time, either to or from a free cell or from one stack to another. That said, it is trivial to move an entire stack of N+1 cards, where N is the number of free cells, by moving N cards to the cells, moving the last card to the new stack, and then pulling down the stored cards onto the ...

I downloaded an open source solver and attempted to solve this, but it was unable to using any of its different algorithms. c:\Program Files\Freecell Solver 6.2.0\bin>fc-solve -t -m c:\files\fc.txt I could not solve this game.

The solver you mention do solves this deal with 4 free cells. For MS Freecell Deal #9371310 : TD 2S 8H 4S JC QC 6S : 2H 4C 7S 8S 9D KD 3D : 5S 3C 9S 9H 7D AC KC : 5D 7H 9C 5C AD 6D JD : TC 4D 3H AS QD KS : 3S 8C QS AH KH TS : 2C QH 8D 4H JH JS : 5H 2D 6C 6H TH 7C Used the default settings, it solved it in few seconds:

The game sounds like Seahaven Towers. Here is a JavaScript version of the game. The one clarification is that you may have four extra cards on the side. A short explanation of the rules, from the link above. Sea Haven Towers is a solitaire game created by Art Cabral and is similar to Freecell, Eight Off, and Baker's Game. There are 4 temporary spaces and 4 ...

My best time in Expert in FreeCell in Microsoft's Solitaire Collection is 1:04. I think I obtained that time in one of the "Daily Challenges", so it may not have been a "real game". That said, I have reached close to that time on other occasions. In fact, while trying to obtain a screenshot of the score screen to include in this post, I believe I have ...
