I'd like to know if it's possible to calculate the difficulty of Mahjong Solitaire layouts and show it's difficulty as a factor that compares with other layouts - and what that way of calculating would look like, as we'd like to use it in future game designs :) Here are two layouts: Dove and Spider layout

Both layouts are two tiles/layers deep with occasional layers of three tiles or one (the eye of the dove) I can provide a more accurate picture if needed and also split them into levels. Hope it's interesting - and challenging enough. it might be easier for Mahjong Solitaire players :) I've also put this under 'probability' as I don't understand most of the other categories.
