And on a slightly sadder note, I lost a game of Spider Solitaire against a barber situated near where I work. He’s a great guy who loves to engage with his customers and I reckon I know a thing or two about negotiating my way to a quick haircut 😊 I can’t give away too much information since there is no reason to risk “de-anonymising” said barber.
I had an ‘informal bet’ that I could complete a game of 4-suit Spider Solitaire without undoing any moves before the barber completed my “hair job” (if you pardon the poor choice of words), assuming we both started at the same time. As you can see below, it wasn’t even close. I guess the moral of the story is 4-suit Spider Solitaire isn’t exactly designed for “speed-solving” and is more suitable for players who like deep strategic thinking and less reflexes.
Last time I had a haircut there, I think I was playing Toy Blast instead of the Royal Game, but unfortunately, I recently decided Toy Blast had a biased random number generator so I am no longer playing that game.
At least I managed to win this hand after finishing my work for today. So until next time, happy Spider Solitaire playing 😊
