Jacoby Card Games
Jacoby is a series of card games I've written based on a Tcl/Tk card-game core. The idea was that all would share a common set of library routines. Unfortunately, they've currently diverged. Sometime I hope to unify them; until then, they're still fun to play.
These games were developed under Unix, but they should run reasonably on PC and Mac versions of Tcl/Tk. I haven't done the release engineering needed to make them easily installable on those platforms, but I'm happy to take suggestions.
is a solitaire game for X11. It's strongly influenced
by the user interface of Klondike for the Macintosh.
Features of klondike include:
- time-based and Casino-style scoring
- persistent high score list
- on-line help
The current rlease of Klondike (1.9) requires post-4.1 Tk or any older version of extended-Tcl/Tk.
Download klondike: source code (tar.gz, 53KB), RedHat package (rpm, 44KB), RedHat source package (src.rpm, 54KB), FreeBSD port (tar, 10KB). FreeBSD package (tar.gz, 38KB), Windows executable (contributed from Scriptics using their TclPro wrapper).
- Dontspace is a solitaire game for X11. It's modeled after the game ``Free Space'' distributed with Microsoft Windows NT. Dontspace emphasizes a clean user interface and point-based scoring.
Thanks to Scriptics for providing the Windows .exe. I can't imagine having to write my own klondike installer for Windows; their TclPro Wrapper lets me avoid that.
