I'll throw a couple of thoughts out there since I know that you appreciate
to see many points of view.

Hard-coded. That means you have to change the program to change the game. It
would not be difficult to store this/read it in from a file, making the same
program suddenly handle an infinite number of games. (well not infinite, but
at least 19*7*2147483647)

Those two block of code above are SO similar that sure they can be combined
into one, or at least the first parts of them.
