Play Your Cards Right




Published in the book The Giant Book Of Games For Your BBC Micro from Fontana Publishing. The book contains the following description:

You and the clever computer have a row of cards in this game, where the aim is to reach the end of the row by guessing if the next card to be turned over will be higher or lower than the previous one.

Your turn lasts as long as you guess correctly. If you make a mistake and guess wrongly, you lose all the cards which come after your 'freeze marker'. You can end your turn early and move your marker to the current card by pressing 'F' for freeze.

You start the play by using your option of changing the current card (using 'Y' for yes or 'N' for no) if you think the card is not a good one to proceed with.

You'll find the BBC Micro plays very well in this highly effective program, based on one written by Paul Toland, although it tends to err a little on the safe side. The cards are drawn randomly from a proper pack. You'll be most impressed with the appearance of the cards.
