Howdy!

. The following link shows TWO winning streaks ending…

.
Spider Solitaire 37 game winning Streak ends...

. My Best, so far, is 46 straight games…
I don’t peak as I’m playing… I did NOT expect to see the 2nd streak to be as high as it was…
... if I had peaked, & it didn’t jinx me, I would have been more careful & possibly broke my overall record!
Oh well…

Joe, have you ever thought you may have too much time on your hands?
BTW, two in a row is a record for me :-)

I wonder if the streak is achievable if you click on the ‘Easy’ level? I can win about half of the Spider games on the hard level, probably could get them all on the easy level. Isn’t there a promotional gift of tokens or a badge if you do a certain number of things this weekend? Joe, don’t tell me those tokens are of any value to you!!! Say it ain’t so!

Hearty congratulations Joe. I do however agree with Howie that you’re spending too much time playing games and not enough making sawdust. Besides, sitting in front of a computer for hours at a time is not healthy.

46 straight wins is extremely remarkable!

Since I got my tablet I haven’t played solitaire on the PC and I have managed as high as three wins in row playing standard Klondike draw 3. The tablet has a free download, with commercials, of 250 solitaire games including 6 Spider variations and Montana, my favorite!

Nice going, Joe! Have you ever heard of a rummy game, called Spider? it is a lot of fun especially with 6 people.

Howie, I don’t play NON-STOP in one session to do this…

Let me clarify some things…

1. I do not play non-stop on these winning streaks… I play a few minutes & go onto other things, leaving the window Open. Returning when I’m bored with everything else…

2. I put the computer into Hibernation mode so a reboot will not reset the streak…

3. I play using the EASY option… those other options are too much like Work.

4. I play VERY FAST… moving right along… 10-15min per game average.

5. I do not try to get a High Score… I find it more fun to get as many Sequential strings put away without any other plays between them… If I can put away 8 strings in 8 clicks, I consider that a Perfect Game… I think I have done it 2 times… My average number of strings in a row is probably 4-5 … mostly 5…

6. I have developed some Rules that I follow that, to me, gives me a better chance of winning… There are times when the cards are all screwed up where I don’t think anyone could win the game! I have had a game won, without any problems, and on the last Click to show more cards, everything is blocked & LOSE the game… a rare happening.

7. I do not spend hours & hours playing this game… a few minutes now & then… sometimes not played in a day!

Thank you…

Jim,

Have you ever heard of a rummy game, called Spider? it is a lot of fun especially with 6 people.

Nope… never have…

I’m really not much of a card playing guy…
... poker is fun… played Canasta a long time ago… and Bridge after that… that’s about it.

Yes, they are achievable on the Easy setting… the only one I use…

Those are REAL screen shots… no hanky panky…

Joe – in all honesty, it’s for babies. If you don’t get 100% buy a colouring book and some crayons..
