Do games die?

I play "Free Cell" a lot, it's my favorite. I play when I am on the phone (hands free), when I'm bored, and when I'm plotting - anything. I'm not great at it, so it is challenging enough to keep trying but not discouraging enough to send it to the hinterlands. I have played it on this computer tens of thousands of games since I got it. Today, however it decided to throw me a curve.
 Out of the blue, it began stacking a row wrong. I couldn't get it moved where it belonged. I finished the game and hoping it was just a fluke, began another.
 Things that make you say, "Hmm ..."
I played that game and quit. Played something else.
Then I tried it again. It's fine - or is it? Is my game dying or is it my computer? 
Good Sunday All!

  2. how odd. maybe there's a glitch. i play free cell occasionally when i need to relax my brain and focus on things other than my thoughts. :)

  3. I know nothing about free cell. Solitaire, scrabble, boggle and bowling work well on mt devices.

  4. Maybe restart the computer. I always try that when I'm having a problem before I scream.

  5. Hopefully it was just a fluke. It's been a long time since I played. It's not good for my obsessive personality to start playing games.

I've taken a long break. Sorry. Using comment moderation, I think.
