Simple oversight: the counting should start from '2', rather than '1'. If the 4
cards placed are kings, you won't have 13*4 cards to place down on top.
Also, while running some analysis on the algorithm, I noticed that the size of
the 4 talons, or discard piles, follows a Poisson distribution function. I'm
not sure if this is actually creating a bias in the algorithm, or not.
