Every card shark has to start somewhere. And what better way to while away the hours and practice your poker face than playing against the computer.
This listing gives you the choice of four solitaire games: Klondyke; Spaces; Accordian; and Poker Solitaire. The first three games use the same command keys.
The cards are selected by using 1-0, A,J,Q,K, and the suits are selected by using H,C,D,S. To twist or deal another card hit the space bar and E to end the game. Klondyke is probably better known as solitaire. The idea behind this game is to reveal the hidden cards by arranging the cards in columns of descending order alternating in colour. The other way of removing a card is to place it with the rest of its suit which build up in stacks of ascending order. To move a card to a blank column or its suit stack simply define the card and leave the destination blank and the program will do the rest.
In Spaces the idea is to rearrange the four columns into descending order by moving the cards into the available spaces.
Accordian is a two player game played against the computer. As each card is delt you compare it to the previous card and the one three cards ahead of it. If the card is the same rank or suit it can be moved onto the relevant pile. The idea of the game is to end up with one pile. If this is not achieved the winner is the person with the least number of piles.
The final game Poker Solitaire is played with the 5x5 grid of cards. Each line and column of the finished grid is scored thus; straight flush - 30, four of a kind - 16, straight - 12, full house - 10, three of a kind - 6, flush - 5 two pairs - 3, one pair - 1. The commands are A-Y for grid location and Z to end the game.
