Editor review of 3 card, 3 pass patience

This is a rather basic implementation of 3-card 3-pass solitaire - probably one of the most restrictive variants of the common Klondike. As in any type of Klondike, your goal is to build up by suit four foundations (from Ace to King) forming tableau columns by building them down alternating card suit colours. The quirk of this particular type of Klondike is that you are forced to draw three cards from the stock, only being able to access the top of those three, and you are only allowed three passes through the stock in a single game. These restrictions do make the otherwise win-friendly game (the odds of winning a common Klondike game are higher than 80%) rather challenging - but they don't quite introduce any significant bits of strategy: before you get to make any long-term plans on how many cards you need to draw from the waste to access a particular card in the stock, you will most likely run out of spare passes. So the game is still little more than a test of your luck.

The game is made in Flash and is indeed very basic. There is no help, no menus, no hotkeys (none that I have managed to figure out, at least), and you have to restart the whole game once you have won or lost it - or even suspected to be losing. On the bright side, the game doesn't need to be installed and looks quite quite nice. I must say, though, that 5 megabytes for such thing, as little as it is, is way too much.
