FreeCell is a card puzzle game, of which an implementation is
distributed with in the operating system Windows'95.
This note shows that there are starting
positions of FreeCell, that do not have a solution, in contrast
with the belief, expressed in the Help-file of the program, which
conjectures that every starting position is solvable.
