Seems my head wasn't quite ready to get back into an all-day coding session like I was aiming for.

Issue : The cards take up a curious amount of space.
I'm currently trying to find the best way to display both the game board, and a hand of cards, without it being silly..

Right, I was halfway through the "Extra" card, wasn't I..
Maybe some kind of quick board game that makes use of those?

I had considered doing a Snakes and Ladders style game but with cards for movement, so .. Yeah, I think I might attempt something like that, today.

Today will be a day spent amongst family, friends and loved ones.
The funeral of one of my cousins, whose passing has most definitely taken a toll on all of us.

*hugs*

v0.89 - A bunch of tweaks to the size and design of the cards.
OK, I think I'm done playing with the cards, for today!!!

You can try the new cards in any of the Card Game games in the Shoebox.

Apparently the two card sizes are referred to as Bridge (the narrow kind) or Poker (the wider ones).
This page has a nice writeup about the two sizes. I'm learning a lot, writing these games!

I'll probably do a bit more tweaking to get the Poker size a bit more exact. At the minute my two ratios are 1.33 and 1.55, whilst they're "supposed" to be 1.4 for Poker, and 1.55 for Bridge.
All of my earlier coding was done with the Bridge numbers, so that's pretty much spot on, but I'm now wondering what that tiny 0.07 difference for the Poker might look like.

So, yeah, I think I'm probably about to do that all of today's work, all over again, with another slightly different set of numbers!
Oh the fun!!

^ My cards



^ Cards redrawn at "Proper" card sizes.

I'm going to leave the cards at "My" size.
Nothing against "proper" size, but .. Everything just looks a little bit cramped at that ratio!
The extra width of my cards appears to give my eyes a little more focal space, and they seem to be able to cope a little better with a screen full of cards.

Having said that, I did originally write the script with the ability to select from different card graphics. I haven't, so far, made use of that since it requires extra loading and that dreaded "Options Screen" that I still haven't got around to adding.
But.. I might now add it, and stick this in as a card choice.

Your thoughts on this are, as always, welcome and appreciated.

Testing cards, today, and .. I'm not happy with the landscape card.
It feels too tall, and yet that's the same size I'm using for all my other cards.

I don't want to have to redo all my card code, but..
At the same time..
Hmm..

Anyhoo, basic functionality of "Other Cards" is now in. I need to figure out a good way to implement all the different types of functionality that the cards will have, in a way that can be reused over various games.
I'm thinking something like a couple of values per card, one for "Function" and a second for "Amount". That'll probably do..
Then, you could have "Property - Function=Price, Amount=£xxx" or "Weapon - Function=Damage, Amount=3pts" or "Move Back 5 Spaces - Function=Move, Amount=-5"

Although, immediately, a Monopoly-esque game would break that logic, since it has about 5 or 6 values on each card.
Hmm..

But, for a starting point, it seems fairly reasonable.

Tomorrow... Making something with cards, I reckon..?

Shoebox Stats

Cards : 3
Words : 3
Board : 2
Misc : 4
Extra : 3 (although it says 4, one of them's the credits, and they don't really count)

So, maybe another Board Game, to try to even things up a little more, but which board game to make?
