Any other solitaire players out there?  This one is for you!  I play before I head off to La-La-Land each night, and recently my solitaire game offered me a new hook…The Daily Challenge.  OK, I play and win and receive a crown for the day I won on the calendar.  Coolio; I’m in.  It didn’t take me long to discover I was winning more than usual.  Could it be that each game in The Daily Challenge series is winnable?  I wondered if I could lose.

I didn’t have long to wait to find out.  One day, I lost.  So…I replayed that day.  To my surprise, the game was re-dealt EXACTLY like the first game.  Hmmm…I realized, as I played, that I had lost this game before, so I’d better play it a little differently.  I did, and to my further surprise…I WON.  Across my mind a thought flashed that actually made me gasp:  I COULD WIN WITH THE SAME CARDS IF I PLAYED THEM DIFFERENTLY.  Could that possibly be true in real life???

I am observing to discover the answer to that question.  So far, I think the answer is, SOMETIMES.  What has your experience been?  Have you had the same situation and dealt with it differently, and enjoyed a more favorable (read: winning) outcome?  I’d love to hear about it!!!
