With the interest in recent releases of Reversi and Tetris in .NET (Wait, didn't somebody names Chris Sells realease a game called “Wahoo” a while back?) I'm releasing my somewhat unfinished solitare program. The main unfinished portions are the graphics (it's 100% C# and GDI+ really isn't made for dragging images like this program does) and a “AutoPlay” capability where it would try to play through the game to determine a winning solution (for the purpose of statistical analysis and hints. You can see the commented out code peppering the program) Neither of these affects gameplay in any way.
The program is a framework for designing solitare games, and as such has five built in variants with the ability for more.
Current variants are:
- Klondike (1 Draw or 3 Draw) Pretty much what you get in Windows, but I wanted to build it.
- Yukon. A variant of Klodike where all cards are laid out on the tableau before play instead of in a pile.
- Storehouse. Canfield variant. Build down in suite on the Tableau cards, and up in suite on the foundation.
- Thirteens. Choose 2 cards equaling 13 or one King to be drawn to the discard.
You can get it here. Solitare
As an aside, .Text is great!
