You'd better ask there:

Or find these people:

The source code from the program can be retrieved by running the following command:

sudo apt-get source gnome-games

While I am not a programmer, reading through the code leads me to believe that each game has a finite number of decks that is determined by whichever rules the program is using; however, it seems that all the rule definitions available use 6 decks.

Can you help with this problem?
