A Solitaire Card Game

Oonsoo is a solitaire card game for the X11 Windows systems. The goal of the game is to arrange the twelve suits of cards, in order, onto the twelve playing decks. When the game starts one card face down and one card face up is dealt to each of the playing decks. Figure 1 shows Oonsoo after it has been invoked.

After the game starts you move the cards around and place them in their correct suit and order. The suits are shown, in order, in Figure 2. Once you've made all your moves you can click on the dealing deck to deal twelve more cards. If you're lucky and skillful enough maybe you'll be able to win!
