Addiction Solitaire

Thursday, June 08, 2006

To make as high score as possible, counting each row and column as a Poker hand and scoring as follows:
Straight flush 30
4 of a kind 16
Staight 12
Full house 10
3 of a kind 6
Flush 5
2 pairs 3
1 pair 1
Shuffle 1 standard deck of playing cards and deal 25 cards one by one, placing them in a 5 x 5 square. The skill arises in picking the best spot for each card. The hands are not ranked as in Poker, but in accordance with their relative difficulty in the Solitaire game. A straight is hard to
make, for if you play for it, scoring 6 or 3 if you fail. Flushes are very easy to make;
in fact, the usual plan is to try for flushes in the columns and full houses or 4 of a kind on the rows. Most of the time you will make 3 or 4 flushes without giving up any higher-scoring opportunities.
