Some screens of my WIP golf solitaire card game. Play nine holes (deals) and try to get the lowest score.

Sounds like an interesting concept. When do you plan to complete it?

It is mostly done now. I need to add in the instruction screen and do the save and load. I am going to try a get a test version out this week. I updated the gallery with some new screens. See the link in the first post.

You'll be able to use either the mouse or the keyboard to play this. The numbers above the card columns are the key shortcuts to play the exposed card in the column. The menu also has keyboard access by selecting the underlined keys. There is a music soundtrack and the game has some simple sound effects. Both can be toggled off/on.

I thought this would be a good project to mess with my card object since I haven't done much with after doing the Yablon card game.

Something I might do next with my card object is a version of Card RPG: http://www.pagat.com/invented/cardrpg.pdf (PDF). Might be fun to try this, although a custom card set might be better than just regular playing cards. I can plug-in different cards in my card object, I could still use the routines for custom cards.

The only left on this is to implement the high score and fix up some odds and ends. I should have a version out in the next couple of days.
