Training the AI to write better LiveCode

The rules for fizzbin were intended to be complex, so that Kirk could lull his audience into lowering their defenses long enough to be overwhelmed.

The game can be played with a standard Earth deck of cards, despite the slightly differing deck on Beta Antares IV <>.
Each player gets six cards, except for the player on the dealer's right, who gets seven.
The second card is turned up, except on Tuesdays.
Two jacks are a "half-fizzbin".
If you have a half-fizzbin:
a third jack is a "shralk" and results in disqualification;
one wants a king and a deuce, except at night, when one wants a queen and a four;
if a king had been dealt, the player would get another card, except when it is dark, in which case he'd have to give it back.
The top hand is a "royal fizzbin", but the odds of getting one are said to be "astronomical".
Give those rules to ChatGPT. Command it to create the game using LiveCode, and see what happens!  ;-)
