    Deck Shuffling

    Is this just using a rand function? It doesn't feel like it's using a true random generator.

    How can you tell if it's truly random?

    You can tell by looking to see if the system takes input from a device that measures quantum events. If it doesn't, then it's not truly random.

    This is really good, and I hope it never gets forgotten as time passes. Alan Comer did a great job in helping understand 'Random' for Hex and other games. It is also a very thankless job, for as long as Hex is alive people will complain about the RNG of the game.

    So this is my thanks to help make Hex random to Alan Comer and anyone else who helped with it.
