Solitaire, Voting And The Monte Carlo Method

A recent update to the solitaire app on my phone installed only winning deals.  That is, every game can be won, although it may not be completely obvious how to do so.  If you make a wrong move at some point, you may lose.  The app allows games to be restarted so that you can try again if you get stuck.  At first, I wasn’t convinced I would like having every game winnable since it seems like cheating, but as it turns out I rather enjoy it.  With the old version if I didn’t win on the first try I would simply start a new game, but now, since I know the game can be won, I will restart it a few times until I figure out the right sequence of moves to get the win. It’s like a puzzle. This weekend, I really got stuck.
