what is your longest freecell winning streak?
i always have a window with a game going and play while i'm waiting for pages to load or whatever. my longest streak is 28 and i was wondering if that's about average or what?

2. 428
on my palm pilot. I play while I wait for things. BUT, I used the back button because I was trying to see if they were correct that every game was winable. I accidently hit the new game button and that stopped my streak. I can usually win between 20 and 30 without the back button but I have been playing for a long time during much waiting for kids to get out of lessons, etc.

3. lol...i wish i had a portable version!
how many moves can you go "back"

my version has an undo but it only works for one move.

i just googled and found someone who had a 65 game strek going.

long streks make me nervous so i never look until after i lose
because as soon as i look, i get rattled and lose.

8. The palm pilot
can go back all the way to the beginning of the game. If you click restart you lose the game so you have to go through laborious undo's if you really want to do it. I just am interested to see if there is a game I can't figure out.

7. Not every game is winnable...
In fact, I've played games where I've exhausted every possible move after something like 6 cards.

4. 119 games.
I don't play anymore. Takes too much valuable time away from DU.

only one "back" step, and if you click on a card first you don't even get THAT.

10. I never lose
I just reload the game until I figure it out. Every game has a solution.

Sometimes it takes several tries, though.
