Séance III - Favor of the Lich King


While browsing through old forums i stumbled upon this thread in the old Séance Forums:

I remember never summoning Sepia :D

Here is the game screenshot in full resolution:

I wonder what happened to Séance X?

-Some of the cards are original Microsoft Solitaire Cards, i kept the palette of that system
- The cardbacks are also from Solitaire. I took them from this rip by Superjustinbros
- profile names and profile pictures in the forum thread (also the idea to use a forum) by pferd-am-herd, thank you!
- original forum repurposed:
- forum background picture: here

Elegant Extension: A Word Game


This is just a simple word game I devised. Write a word that's at least 5 characters long. Then, the second-last and third-last letters in that word become the third and fourth letters of your next word. See how long you can keep devising words that fit within these constraints. The lower-left corner shows a thumbnail of the entire game board as you have filled it so far.

This time I've left the more specific game constraints outside the game, leaving it up to the player to decide how to play. For instance, it doesn't check words against a dictionary file, so the arbiter for whether a word is 'good' is only you. It is also up to you to choose whether to avoid words already entered. You can also use this to play a two-player game where you take turns entering words. This is intended to be as vacant of refereeing as a mere pencil and paper are.

For inclusion in the Pirate Kart, consult the Zip file.

Solitaire: The Roguelike


by Jeremy Penner
version 2.0

Shuffle a deck of regular playing cards. Deal out 25 cards face down in a 5x5 square. Flip the card in the middle so it is face up. This is the dungeon. Deal yourself three cards. These are your starting weapons.

Your goal is to clear out the dungeon of all enemies. To fight an enemy:
- Play one or more cards from the card in your hand on top of a card in the dungeon. If it is face-down, turn it up.
- If the sum of the value of the cards played is less than or equal to the value of the enemy you are fighting, you are killed and the game ends immediately.
- If the sum of the value of the cards played is greater than the value of the enemy you are fighting, you kill the enemy. Discard the cards that you played, and put the enemy card into your hand.
- After the battle is over (and you survive to fight another turn), you do two things:
1. Reveal a card directly adjacent to the enemy that was defeated (no diagonals).
2. Optionally take a card from the top of the deck. If you decide to do so, you must then discard either the card that you just took from the deck, or the enemy card that you just won from the battle.
- If the enemy card was hidden at the beginning of the battle, take an extra new card from the top of the deck.

Jack - 11
Queen - 12
King - 13
Ace - 14
EDIT: The first version of this game that I posted is painfully degenerate; after the first couple of turns, you were basically so powerful as to be unstoppable (though actually playing that way felt really wrong). This is a vastly improved version that I figured out while my son was in the bath which actually has the player occasionally making interesting choices.
