A great and trouble free app
I enjoy playing solitaire and have never had a problem with the app until a week or so ago when it would crash whenver I changed or customized the background with personal pictures. I didn’t know if I had done something in error and caused the problem or what. I tried restarting and changed settings to no avail. The only thing I could of doing was to keep sending the crash reports hoping it would be fixed but 2 days went by and nothing was fixed. Work finally demanded my full attention and time making me forget the app until today. After restarting my Mac for a security update I noticed this app had been updated 3 days before and found a short message acknowledging there having been a problem but was now fixed. I appreciate that extra step and am grateful this app is working as great and trouble free as ever.
Nice, but missing some features
Pros: You can quit the app in the middle of a game and when you start it back up the game comes back up where you left it. This solved one of the things that has really bothered me about other solitare apps, which is finding you need to reboot or something and this causes you to lose a game.
Cons: I have only played Freecell, but their version of this game is missing some features that make it a bit annoying to play. First, you are limited in the size of a stack of cards based on the number of open freecell spaces, even if there are empty spaces in the tableau. So moving a large stack of cards can take a large number of unnecessary moves. Second, when you click on a card so that the game decides where to move it, the game often seems to pick the worst possible move. It will typically not move the card to a stack, moving it to an open cell in the tableau, which is pretty much never the right move. Or it will move the card to the foundation, when you need the card to remain in the tableau so you can use it to build a stack. These behaviors need to be fixed. I find myself reversing most of the automatic moves using undo.
Fun game, but minor irritations
First, I enjoy playing Full Deck Solitaire. It has many features and options that I find to be of value, such as the undo, turning on or off the timer and score reduction mechanism, etc. The thing I find irritating is that many, many times on redealing cards for a new game I find the same card denomination face up in the foundation, like three or four 5's or three or four 7's face up. Sure this can happen when playing with a real deck of cards (not on a computer), but this happens with too great a frequency to be truly random. The same situation applies to playing a card from one stack in the foundation to another and the same card color and denomination appears underneath it. Again, too frequently to be random. One otherr thing is that when clicking on the top card in the stock pile what looks like a duplicate card to the top stock pile card shuffles back and forth from the stock pile to the waste pile, kinda like a duplicate or ghost card. Makes one rather suspicious of the card-turning algorhythm. The shuffling algorhythm is somewhat questionable as well.
Developer Response ,
Hi there. Glad you love the game! We get a lot of questions on the randomness of cards from two crowds. One, that they are too random and can we please shuffle the cards more like humans (which actually don't shuffle cards well at all between plays) and two, that the cards are too predictable and seem to follow some algorithm. I've actually tested, at length, to make sure we had great random shuffles but you are always at the mercy of the computers, or compilers, random number generator. I have been looking at adding a "quantum shuffling" option which uses a quantum random number generator based around the random noise the universe makes to make sure the cards are completely and utterly random, there is a service that offers this now and although it would take slightly longer to randomize the cards it would be pretty interesting to see if it makes a difference for people who feel the cards aren't random (after all, I believe that you are playing the game enough to see a pattern somehow). Anyway, I'm always looking at the random number situation and the two sides we hear about, but I am interested to see what will happen when we add quantum shuffling! I hope that helps explain a little bit of the thinking, happy to carry on the conversation as always via our support email!
