PlCard is a library designed to support building card games (or Playing
Card games, since "card" is so confusing in the context of Rev).
It contains images for the cards themselves, and a number of functions
and handlers to manipulate them.
This is an ALPHA release (i.e. I haven't written the documentation yet
:-) It's also only been tested on Windows (2000 and XP); I'd be
particularly interested to hear whether and how it works on Mac or Unix.
I haven't figured out the best way to handle libraries and applications
in the context of RevOnline, so for now I have simply bundled the
library into the sample game; later it will probably be available
It's on RevOnline under Games / Pyramid or under username
"alextweedly" / Pyramid
In theory, the game is obvious and self-explanatory ..... let me know if
it's not, or let me know of any problems. The basic rules for Pyramid
can be found in almost any collection of Patience games - for example
It's very simple - partly because I haven't yet decided whether to make
scoring, high scores, player names, etc. part of the PlCard library or a
separate one - so for now you just play without anything more in the way
of a score than a simple running total.
