Untitled[edit]

Under the default rules, this game is extremely hard to beat all the way down to one pile. I've played hundreds of times and still havent won. I've gotten it down to two at least. The person who showed me the game hasnt beaten it since he learned it over 20 years ago. If you can get it down to one pile, congratufreakinglations, you have done the near-impossible.

The game is not nearly as difficult to win as reputed if played with some care. I have often won twice or more in the same day. Kostaki mou 22:40, 8 February 2007 (UTC)

The Idle Year[edit]

Walter B. Gibson describes another variant of this game, which he says is the original. In this version, all moves must be performed as soon as they become possible. Also, there is no choice in moves: if a card can be moved either to the pile immediately to the left or to that three piles to the left, it must be moved to that immediately to the left. Otherwise, if two moves are simultaneously possible, the leftmost must be performed. Gibson calls this version The Idle Year (which is given as an alternative title for Accordion in Mott-Smith and Morehead). He then describes the "modernised" version of the game, "popularly known as Accordion," in which all moves are voluntary as in the rules given in the article. I suspect that the distinction was a figment of his imagination. The "original" version he describes may deserve its reputation of near-impossibility. Accordion does not.
