Freecell (Posted on 2006-09-06) Difficulty: 2 of 5
I have an addiction of sorts - I can't keep from playing Freecell. (Most "Windows" users have access to this game from their "Start" menu.) There was once a theory that every possible deal is winnable in this game (this has apparently been disproven).

How many essentially different deals are there in Freecell?

Freecell setup: deal a standard 52 card deck out into eight columns: four with seven cards and four with six. Two deals with only column order changed (i.e., that can be made identical by only switching the locations of particular columns) are not considered different in this context.
