Today I spent an hour or so doing important research on Free Cell in the office to avoid the staff that drive me up the wall.

The previous librarian that had my post used to read the Chicago newspaper online in the office to avoid them.

9 wins out of 22 games.


Although, it's easier to do with Solitaire doling cards out one at a time rather than the normal 3.

Sounds as if you're playing too fast. Slow down, take your time, plan your moves, scan the layout for trouble spots before starting. You can easily win 80-90 percent of the games in Free Cell. Some layouts are tricky, requiring a bit of creative card moving. Some will take two or three, or more, tries to complete. Supposedly every layout does have a solution.
