Why does Microsoft allow cheaters to play this game and record results that are impossible? Yesterday's event was 20 games of Spider Solitaire where the top players have results where they do each game with an average time of 1 minute. You can easily shut me up by posting a video of someone doing this. In the 20 games that you need to play, there are a few which can be done in less than a minute but there is no way that the average could come close to a minute each. There are just too many moves involved. Is Microsoft okay with the fact that they are hosting a crooked game? I will not be renewing my subscription if they continue to let this happen.

I'm a long time FreeCell addict, (since Windows 3.1) it always bugs me that there are dozens of best scores shown in the under one minute category.

I don't take back moves and have won 100 consecutive games 3 times.

You have to move 52 cards at the absolute minimum and to do that they would have to be in the exact order when first dealt, so that each card can move directly to the home bar, yet every deal even ones that take me 5 or 6 minutes and that puts me in the top 10 list as far as fewest moves, have scores posted at times like 59 seconds.

I don't believe that anyone can finish a game that fast seeing it for the first time, much less many people.

Maybe the Bobby Fischer of freecell but how many of those can their be?

I don't try for the fastest time, my focus is on never losing, but it always shows that the fastest time is for the first time played by the record holder.

I just don't believe it.

There is no award, and only cyber, so it bothers me not recognition of the achievements. I just enjoy the challenge.

I couldn't agree with you more! It's very sad isn't it?
I play purely for the challenge of keeping my grey matter ticking over, and even as a silver surfer with an annoying slow internet connection I do OK.
Thoroughly enjoy the games though, so thanks to Microsoft for posting them.
