SYNOPSIS

kardsgt [ options ] ...

DESCRIPTION

kardsgt is a card game programme that has many of your favourite card games. Each game comes with an exhaustive manual on how to play. In addition to the many wonderful games, we also have amazing characters to play against. Each character has their own history and sense of play, giving you a fun challenge as you spend your time.

KardsGT has a ranking system for both the human players and the computer players. The human players rank is based on how many games they win over time. Computer players have their ranks based on the skill level approximation of their game play strategies.

KardsGT uses a simple interface for playing the games. To play a card, simply drag the card you want to play to the place you need to play your card, or double-click on the card you want to play. Additionally you can right click and sort your cards in a predefined mannor. You can sort by rank, by suit, or by random. If this doesn’t fit with your needs you can click and drag your cards into the position you want them to be in your hand.

The image of the players indicate not just their mood but also facilitates communication with you. For example, if it is a player’s turn the letter "T" appears in the upper-left of the players picture. If it is not the player’s turn and the player is the dealer then the letter "D" is displayed, else the player’s skill ranking number is displayed instead.

Some games have buttons in them, clicking on them will activate the action they describe. For example, spades has a contract button, this button will tell you how many tricks the team have contracted. In the centre of the interface you’ll see the playing area. This playing area is where you’ll drag the card you wish to play. The play area also allows you to see the last cards played until the next card is played. KardsGT comes with a few standard images, the image for you and the images for each of the cards. If you would like to change any of the images you can by selecting the configure option under the settings menu. From there you can point to a directory that has card images (currently only in an xpm file format), the image used for the back of the card, or even use the default image for a female player or select an image of your choosing.

EXIT STATUS

The game returns 0 on a success. All other values are indicate failure.
