Beeb Patience




Originally authored by Richard Still for the Commodore PET and published in Personal Computer World in March 1983. The program was converted to the BBC Micro by Benny Notarianni.

Published on the Best Of PCW Software For The BBC Micro compilation from Personal Computer World magazine. These compilation cassettes were published by Century Communications Ltd. The accompanying book contained the following description:

The user plays a game of Patience on the screen. The object is to place each suit in ascending order on its respective pile.

Instructions are displayed, then the main program is called. (It is not possible to look at the instructions again without rewinding the tape.) The single pack is laid out in the form of a 'Harp'. The cards may be moved from one column to another or new cards are dealt from the stack. As soon as an Ace becomes available, it may be used to start a file.

No false moves or cheating are allowed! Perhaps a 'Cheat' facility could be added for desperate players?
