FreeCell Game #1749

I've been trying to do this particular game on and off for a few hours now, with no luck despite numerous restarts. In the overview for the game it states "It is believed (although not proven) that every game is winnable. " But this one has me stumped. Can anyone do it, or have I found an unwinnable game?

I'm not asking for instructions on how to do it, merely if anyone can.

if it's in the Games forum, and I'll move it over now.

is quite easy.
Not sure what ur problem is though. Is it that u don't know how to play it at all?

Using XP or Vista? Because I think Vista has a feature called 'hint' if you get stuck. It basically tells you what move to do.

  Si_L 12:43 25 Aug 2008

Haha I just did the game (on Vista) using hint on every move, and it couldn't complete it, it came up with 'Sorry, there are no more possible moves' or something to that effect.

Marko797 - WTM doesn't suck, the game sucks.

its just the particular arrangement of cards in game number 1749 that has me stumped. But I dont know if the numbering is machine specific, or windows version specific. And I'm using XP.

Marko797 & Si_L - Are you both saying you have managed to do that specific game number?

Ah, now I see what u mean...that game (1749) in particular.

Well, yes, have just done it, and have some screenshots for u to prove it. Only problem is I don't know how to upload 'screens'.

In answer to ur question, Yes it can be done. I'm also on XP, so there shouldn't be any variation in game numbers?

how sad is this???

  WhiteTruckMan 21:30 25 Aug 2008

Not really. I just had a minor metaphorical itch that needed scratching, is all, and thanks for doing just that.

I have read that, of the first 32,000 games, only number 11982 is thought to be unsolvable.
