Montana Solitaire (also known as Station, Blue-Moon, Gaps)

Object:
To order all of the cards in 4 rows of increasing order from 2 to K, one single suit per row.

Initial Deal:
All 52 cards are dealt face up into 4 rows, 13 cards each. The Aces are then removed to create 4 blank spaces.

Moving a Card:
Any card can be moved to a blank spot, provided it:
- is one rank higher than the card to the left of the blank
- is the same suit as the card to the left of the blank

Only 2's may be placed at the beginning of a row, and nothing can be placed after a King.

Tapping on the card you want to move will automatically move it to it's correct spot, if it is a valid move.

Re-Deal:
All unordered cards (those not in sequence, beginning with the 2 at the left most side) of each row are picked up, and shuffled thoroughly with the Aces. The cards are put down again behind each of the remaining rows; subsequently the Aces are removed again to create four new gaps.

The number of re-deal times can be set in the Settings.

Scoring:
1 point for each card in sequence beginning with the 2 of that suit in the left most spot.

Game Over:
The game automatically ends when either all the cards are placed in order, or there are no re-deals left and no possible move.

If all of the cards are placed in order, then a new hand is dealt, and the Score keeps increasing. Note that the Re-Deals are not reset.

Undo:
Undoes the last move only.

See the Settings menu for game play options.

*Disclaimer*

Even though I have tried my best to make a quality program that does no harm, sometimes sneaky little bugs rear their ugly heads. Thus, I can not be held accountable for data loss or harm done to you or your Palm(tm) device. I also can not be held accountable if your boss catches you playing this game at work ;-)
