Has any Seahaven Towers Game been won in 52 moves ?
It’s certainly possible, since you could design many shuffles that do it, but it’s very unlikely to happen in practice.
I searched our database for this and found 10,000 games that have been.
However… it seems fishy because they were all between the dates of 2014-02-12 and 2014-06-02. So all in a four month span 9 years ago. Makes me think there was some sort of bug back then :-/ (example).
Ok, I just spot checked some of them and yeah, they're not right. I checked our code and, yep, looks like a bug got fixed on Thu May 29 03:05:04 2014 -0700, which was pushed into production on 2014-05-30 19:27 -0700.
So yeah, it's never happened in our billions of games, and the ones we have are clearly bugs.
how is this possible ? 44 moves ????
