    I'm usually pretty good at Freecell... but I'm stumped tonight on a game. It may be due to a couple of glasses of wine blurring my brain or it might just be a really tough deal... Either way, I can't figure out how to get the darned thing out... so I'm asking if anyone else can get it out.

    It's this version of Freecell which is free and a Universal Binary and it's game 572,744,748 that I'm stuck on. Hints on solving gratefully received... or even just confirming that it's not one of the 'unsolveable' deals would be appreciated

    Cool - I didn't know you could get this for the Mac - it is often the only reason I bring my work laptop home, and I don't even have that excuse. :)

    I'll give it a bash - I have pretty decent record on the PC version.

    God, these kind of things are death-traps. Shame on you for starting it. ;).

    I can't be of any help on this business though. No good with the card games.

    Typical... I try multiple times (30 minutes or so), post the thread and go back to it. And ta da... it comes out first time! :rolleyes:

    So it is solvable... but you have to start in a roundabout fashion to my eyes.

    Good... now I can stop. ;) My parents are into this in a scarily big way. Me? Not so much....

    I've just spent a week with my mother who likes Freecell, hence why I dredged it up from the bottom of the Apps folder. I think I only ever play a game or two after speaking to her!

    Gah - finally got it. I probably would have given up a long time ago if I didn't know it was solvable. Weirdly, it was also my mum who got me into Freecell.

    Gah! I'm so sad I didn't see this thread sooner! I was looking forward to being able to tell you how to do it. :D I love this game!
