Freecell is...

Okay, maybe not "addicting." I don't feel the need to play it when I'm not playing it, and can go quite a long time between games of it.

It does build up a horrible inertia though, for lack of a better term. I'll go to play a game or two if I'm killing a few minutes at my computer for whatever reason, and find myself playing another game, and another... I'll finish one game, and have the following dialogue with myself:

"Ah, okay, I won that game. Not bad. Okay, I think that's enough for me, I'll just go and..."
"Oh, I, ah, appear to be playing another game."

Seriously, I don't feel any great need to play it if I'm not playing it at the moment, but once I start, it's like it builds up its own gravitational field. Madness!

Wait, you actually _win_ at freecell??? *filled with awe*

Okay, i do win occasionally, but it's significantly less often than i get frustrated and give up =P

(And by give up i usually mean reset the configuration and try again =)

Heh, I win some, I lose some, but I'd say I win a fair amount, maybe half or so.

Who knows, maybe there's a difficulty setting I'm not seeing, or something.
