Move cards one at a time to try to unveil the next cards to fit onto the foundation piles.
You can move card on top of higher ranking cards, in a bid to get to the required card.
Warning : This is a REALLY hard game!

Oh dear, this game's hard!

You can attempt to play Beleaguered Castle Solitaire in the Shoebox in amongst the card games.

Yeah, that did the trick..
The Shoebox now clutters your browser history! I'm currently trying to figure out the best way to remove the hundreds of references that are built up as you navigate through the games, but .. For now, at least, the Back Button on Android should now behave as you'd expect it to.
Hurray!

As the Shoebox continues to build, more and more and more comments are incoming! I've literally had more comments to the blog in the past couple of months than I have in the past decade!!

So, the Shoebox now has Level capabilities.. That's nice!
I'm tempted to add something like Quadoban, or maybe a Kee-Bo-Ard, but that would definitely be crossing the border between physical and arcade.. I might need to come up with some way to mesh the styles together, somehow, and create a brand new sort of game.
Hmm..

A fairly large update, this morning, as I'm fairly confident that the caching is now working like it oughta.

Based upon the classic Nintendo DS launch title "Polarium", try to find a single move through the tiles which will flip them over such that each horizontal row contains just a single colour.

I added that function for good reason, and Alan seems determined to make me use it!!

Al overshot the goal and starting going backwards. Is that correct?
I think so.!
This is something that I added to Snakes and Ladders, as it's been a rule we've always played at home, and since Board of Spikes is more or less a clone of Snakes and Ladders, I opted to leave that rule in.
If that wasn't the case, then there's be no need to use a specific card to end the game. I felt that was more important than just letting the player us...

All previous links will still work, and nothing should be broken by the HUGE change in Shoebox, since the new domain simply links to the same files in the same folder, and all the file access is relative.
ShoeboxOfGames.com now exists!
I bought the domain a couple of days ago, but only got around to setting it up properly, late last night.
A more or less simple addition to the overall chaos of AGameAWeek.

A nice and quick game for today. Battle against AL or a friend, in this flipping strategy game.

You can Play Reversi in the Shoebox, where you'll find it under the Misc games.

Today I played Board of spikes and Ludo in android mobile. This is the first time I am playing shoebox of games in mobile and I found it to be a very good experience. Took a little bit of effort to place the ludo pieces initially but then it became easier.

Place tiles on the board such that there are a line of your opponent's tiles between your new tile, and one of your tiles elsewhere on the board.
Any opponent's tiles inbetween will be captured.
Aim to have the most tiles on the board, by the end of the game.

A simple Snakes'n'Ladders style game, using cards.

Use one of the cards from your hand to select how many spaces you'll move. If you land on a Spike, turn it over to see what will happen. You'll either end up moving forwards or backwards, so lets hope that luck is on your side.
You can Find 'Board of Snakes' in the Board Games of the Shoebox.

Use the cards in your hand to move your piece carefully through the board of spikes. Landing on spikes will poke you, but will you be moved forwards or backwards?

Still on a bit of a go-slow, here.
It doesn't help that the weather's been absolutely gorgeous over the past few days, so much so that the need to sit and relax in the sunshine has taken precedence over standard coding duties.

Right, I was halfway through the "Extra" card, wasn't I..
Maybe some kind of quick board game that makes use of those?
I had considered doing a Snakes and Ladders style game but with cards for movement, so .. Yeah, I think I might attempt something like that, today.

Apparently the two card sizes are referred to as Bridge (the narrow kind) or Poker (the wider ones).
This page has a nice writeup about the two sizes. I'm learning a lot, writing these games!
I'll probably do a bit more tweaking to get the Poker size a bit more exact. At the minute my two ratios are 1.33 and 1.55, whilst they're "supposed" to be 1.4 for Poker, and 1.55 for Bridge.
All of my earlier coding was done with the Bridge numbers, so that's pretty much spot on, bu...

Testing cards, today, and .. I'm not happy with the landscape card.
It feels too tall, and yet that's the same size I'm using for all my other cards.
I don't want to have to redo all my card code, but..
At the same time..
