A nice big chunk of feedback from Alan this morning, on the new Crossword Game, so let's dig through his thoughts.
You can Play the Crossword Game in the Shoebox under Word Games.

Alan

Fun. I beat AL 356-147
Yeah, AL's not hard to beat, right now! I need to get him to plan out Premium Tiles a little better, to bulk up his scores a bit.

For the sake of desperately trying to get a few extra sources of feedback, I've opted to upload a copy of Shoebox to GameJolt.
.. And, thus far, there's zero interest.. So.. Yippee.. :/

Someone should make a TV show where every single episode is big and epic, and definitely the absolutely final ever episode..
.. Until right at the end, when someone notices something, and it acts as a cliffhanger for the next episode.

The classic letter-tile based board game. Place words using tiles in your rack, and try to beat your opponent.

I'm now having issues with the Swap Letters Dialogue, in that if you drag all your letters onto the dialogue and hit the "Swap" button, for a split second you have no letters in your rack, and the computer goes "Hey, somebody won!!"
*sigh*
Everything else from the earlier todo-list is now todone, so I'm pretty confident that the game will be out at some point today! Just .. Those last little bits!!

I'm down to the last few items on the todo-list.

.. Wasn't I down to the last few items on the todo-list, a few days ago!?
Hmm..

Right, today I need to figure out how to do the blanks.
I'll probably need to use an extra chunk of array to draw them separate from the rest of the board. Draw plain blanks, then plop letters on top. I might even make them Font-based, rather than Tile-based.

1. The "Swap Letters" dialogue. A secondary rack that pops up and lets you move letters into the Swap-Rack, before hitting the "Yep, swap!" button and having them be swapped, whilst you miss a turn.

Having a really odd issue, right now, where computer players are sneakily gaining blank tiles, when..
A ) The computer player can't make a move.
and
B ) There are no blank tiles in the bag.

Alan asks..

What's the general outline of your current approach?
The general method is as such.
1. The AI randomly picks a spot on the board, and scans to check that a word will fit in the space provided. It looks for a space that will fit about 3 or 4 letters and will connect to at least one other tile on the board.

The AI is selecting some nice placements, as well as some fairly decent words, but there are still "quirks" in the methodology.

Massive enhancements, tonight, as the Crossword Game's brain gets a little shove in the right direction.

The AI is now at least managing to play without murdering my laptop!
A quick rewrite of the WordList, and a little bit of learning a bit more of Javascript's abilities, and I've now got things streamlined a little more.
The next will be to add a bit more intelligence to the AI.
As you can see in the screenshot above, all four AI players seem to be fairly balanced, but aren't exactly scoring massively. That'll be the next task, now that things aren't insanely slow and, ...

I might need to rejig the way the WordList is held, to make AL's job a little bit easier.

AL's getting slightly better, but is currently only attempting about 2 word placements per frame.

I've just had a fairly decent game against AL.
His AI's not quite up to much, but he is at least managing to play along.

Attempt number one hasn't gone particularly well.
The game struggles to keep up with itself, and my laptop's fan kicks into overdrive, while the game just about manages to find the word "AA" in amongst all the possibilities!

You know when you spend hours working on something, then look back at what you've done, and go "What on earth did I actually do?"
.. I did that, yesterday!

When I was playing Golf Solitaire in my android chrome browser found an odd issue where the drag and drop card gets placed in the top left of the screen as seen in the attached screenshot.

Board Layouts.. Not easy!

But the main ones are in, now. Regular Scrabble, Super Scrabble, Words With Friends, and there's also the option for random layouts, so that's nice!!
More to come..

"Putt" your cards onto the green. Putted card should be of value one higher or lower than the card on the green.
If you can't putt any cards, draw a new Green from the deck.

Golf Solitaire isn't nearly as bad as Beleaguered Castle Solitaire!

I spent a good number of hours, yesterday, looking online for any rulesets that might make "Beleaguered Castle Solitaire" any better, but failed miserably to find anything.
I did find a number of alternative solitaires that claimed to make the game a little harder, though, so.. Um.. Yeah, ok!!
