WOW ! This is clearly the best Solitaire version I have come across, @Lark.
First off you use only the keyboard, that's a plus for me, AND when you select a card it shows precisely where it can go and nowhere else.
Not only is this a great solitaire game with exceptional art for the cards, but because of it only showing correct moves, it TEACHES the game additionally.
The only other options I would like would be to SAVE and LOAD your game if you need to return later, and an infinite UNDO so you can try different methods - or recover from a bad move you made.
Also if you deplete the deck, suggest you can click on that card provided it does not go anywhere to move the stack back to the right - the same as clicking the blank place holder does.
Very well done ! Favorited 💗 and gold starred !
@ooooggll One can't access the ace piles because that is part of the challenge. If one puts a card up there too soon it may not be available to move cards around in the stacks later. My strategy is to not put any card in the endzone if it is more than 2 ranks higher than the lowest card in the endzone. I take chances against that strategy when my stacks get stuck. Thanks for saying it's cool!
@dw817 Thanks so much for kind words! Your feedback is very much appreciated. I thought about UNDO but left it out as it allows for "cheating" (but can one really cheat at Solitaire? It's tempting to me, at least :) ) It does stink when you move a card to the endzone or off the draw pile when you didn't want to. A LOAD/SAVE is a very neet idea, if I make an update I hope I can put that in there. Thanks very much for all the positive comments and feedback.
Nice solitaire game. Very clean and user-friendly.
@Lark An undo option would make more games winnable and some would appreciate it, but I personally like to do without and treat it like a real game. My win rate is around 40% and I'd like to think that's a pretty good number :P
Some nice-to-have suggestions:
- The game saved your game statistics (and an option to reset it)
- The games counter doesn't go up if the player reshuffles without moving a card in the beginning
- Drawing from the foundation piles like others have mentioned
- Mouse support
I found variations on the rules, some easier and some harder than the ones I'm using here. (from "can take cards back from foundations" to "can only go through the deck once") Perhaps I can put them in the settings. It is for the player to enjoy the game after all! Hope you are enjoying it and thanks for the compliments and feedback.
