MondoSolitaire - card generation not random
Posted: Thu Aug 30, 2007 5:01 pm
I have had a very slow week at work, so lots of solitaire time. It didn't take long to notice that cards are not being generated in a truly random fashion. Having a card (# 4 for instance) on screen seems to generate a higher probability that another card of the same denomination (#4) will appear. It isn't rare to have three of the same number showing within two or three moves. This can be in the tableau or from the draw pile or both. This happens over and over throughout game play. The end result is that it is much harder to win than it would be with a real deck of cards and it also becomes pretty annoying after a while. My guess is that you aren't even aware of this issue, so I thought I would bring it up. Aside from this, I have enjoyed your game and appreciate your effort.
