Alan


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 use any card they want.
You have to specifically land on the goal to win.

But, what do YOU think??
Is that a good rule, or is it an odd one?
Let me know.

v0.902 : Finally gave the Shoebox a domain name, and added vPeek and vPoke functions for future usage.
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.

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.

I think my head wants to have a play with a "Normal" AGameAWeek game.

Cordova can be a right pain, at times, but I'm finally starting to wrangle it into a suitable amount of functionality.

v0.897 - Added game Board of Spikes, a simple Snakes'n'Ladders style game, using cards.
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.

Unless my mind turns to mush again, I'm fairly confident that I should be able to finish the Spike Boardgame thing, today.

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.

Amazing how much a funeral hits you. I spent all day yesterday sitting about, playing Smash Bros, watching various YouTube things, and generally not really bothering to do any sort of coding whatsoever.

Maybe today will be more productive?

Meanwhile..


Over on the Testing the Width post..

Alan suggests

Just my opinion, but the individual cards could use a tiny bit more margin. I prefer the top picture. Not because of the aspect ratio of the cards themselves, but because it has a more pleasing ratio of cards to inter-column gaps.

Issue : The cards take up a curious amount of space.
I'm currently trying to find the best way to display both the game board, and a hand of cards, without it being silly..

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.

Today will be a day spent amongst family, friends and loved ones.
The funeral of one of my cousins, whose passing has most definitely taken a toll on all of us.

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, but I'm now wondering what that tiny 0.07 difference for the Poker might look like.

So, yeah, I think I'm probably about to do that all of today's work, all over again, with another slightly different set of numbers!
Oh the fun!!

^ My cards



^ Cards redrawn at "Proper" card sizes.

I'm going to leave the cards at "My" size.
Nothing against "proper" size, but .. Everything just looks a little bit cramped at that ratio!
The extra width of my cards appears to give my eyes a little more focal space, and they seem to be able to cope a little better with a screen full of cards.

Having said that, I did originally write the script with the ability to select from different card graphics. I haven't, so far, made use of that since it requires extra loading and that dreaded "Options Screen" that I still haven't got around to adding.
But.. I might now add it, and stick this in as a card choice.

Your thoughts on this are, as always, welcome and appreciated.
