Default Solitaire App on Zune

I downloaded the Solitaire App from the Zune Marketplace and I have never, NEVER won a game playing it. I play other Solitaire games on my computer and the internet and I win a lot.

Anyone else having this problem ?
Anyone else notice this?

Maybe you're just really terrible at playing solitaire on the zune?

I win every so often, but my mom plays solitaire the most (she's racked up over 3000 games since I last formatted my Zune just a couple months ago)

I can confirm this. Hell, if you just play by pressing the hint button, it eventually ****s you over.

Yeah, it's really hard.
But I know I've won before, it's just really hard.
And like Arfy said, the hint button does **** you over.
Only use it a few times, don't rely on it to get you a win.

I'm going to guess small sample size and bad luck. I feel like this generates situations where it's not possible to win, because I generally do better with a different software (not on the ZHD). Hint button doesn't necessarily screw you over. I'd think you'd do better just mashing hint than going through it without it, because then you might not miss something. Not that I do it, just logically. The only times when hint might be bad is when it tells you to put something in the foundations when you can use it or when you can put a black king but it'd be better to wait for a red one.

My Stats:
Wins: 225 (39%)
Losses: 351
Fastest: 1:37 (who can beat this one? )

God damn.

Anyways, sounds like it's just really hard, not impossible.

I've gone through several games in the past by only pressing the hint button. I never won.

Hint = just a hint. There are plenty of moves and it only gives you a hint to one of them. No strategy is used, it just does it.

I get as many wins with this one as I do with the windows version. Maybe I just have gotten good hands. According to past threads, it's just that all Zune games are just ****ing ridiculously hard.

If you are having trouble downloading a solitaire game, you can just play one in the browser, there are loads of solitaire games online that you can try out.
