Play solitaire - win - watch the card "cascade" - then move the mouse pointer around inside the solitaire window - bingo - the cascade speeds up!!

Just why might that be?

No prizes - and I don't know the answer anyway.

Am I a heathen? On the very rare occasions I play solitaire and the very much rarer occasions that I win, I start a new game as soon as all the cards are used up from the pack. The collating into suits and then the cascade doesn't seem worthwhile.

Sorry!!

Can remember playing Solitaire on an old 386 laptop with a monochrome screen! The cascade on that took ages, it was never the same playing on a modern PC where it was over in a few seconds!
