xmille - X window mille bourne game
Xmille brings up a window for a mille bournes game.
When selecting one of your cards, the left button plays the card,
the right button discards the card and the middle button chooses
whichever is appropriate, first trying to play the card, and then
For those who dont know, the point behind
mille bournes is to get to 700 miles before your opponent. You can opt for an extension,
and for extra points go the full 1000 (mille) miles (bournes). You must
get exactly the correct number of miles.
You can try
and stop your opponent with various "battle" cards. It will try and stop
you. You can counter the "battle" cards with the appropriate gasoline,
repair, Go, or spare tire card. Or you may have a "Safety", with will
make it impossible for your opponent to hurt you in some fashion. Its
a good idea to keep your Safetys in your hand (unless your opponent
gets close to the end). If your opponent, say, hands you an "out of gas"
card and you have the Tanker truck card, you play it immediately and
cry out, "Coup Fourre!!"
(pronounced, "KOO four RAY") You get bonus points for that. For
full game rules, see the Parker Brothers card game by the same name.
There are now keyboard equivalents for some of the actions:
p - Pick a card
u# - use card number "#" (1-6)
up - use picked card
d# - discard card number "#" (1-6)
dp - discard picked card
Q - absolute Quit, doesnt check with you before doing so.
s - save game

It does not accept any X arguments, including the -display argument. The
DISPLAY environment variable must be set for it to work
Sometimes it crashes if you win :-(. I need to look into it further.
If you can reproduce it on a regular basis, or if you can figure it out,
that would be great! -Mike, 3/28/96
