There are roughly the same number of molecules in a litre of water as there are stars in the observable universe – 100,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 give or take a zero or two. For me this makes the universe seem tiny – and molecules even tinier! A whole universe of stars, in one carton of milk.
I’m not sure what this says about Puzzle Poker. There are 15,511,210,043,330,985,984,000,000 different ways to arrange the cards in a single puzzle. Of those, there are 538,583,682,060,103,680,000 arrangements with potentially different scores. These are universe-sized numbers. Even with a super-computer, checking all combinations of a single puzzle would take millions of years.
This enormous combination space makes for an excellent logic puzzle.
The game is played with 25 cards dealt into a 5 x 5 grid. The objective is to make the best poker hands you can – across every row, and down every column, simultaneously.
Figuring out the best way to fit all the cards together is somewhere between Sudoku and horse-trading – you often need to sacrifice a good hand so you can achieve a better score overall.
Can you figure out how to reach the expert score?
