Games for Mike’s Cards
This page is reserved for single- and double-deck solitaire games created
with the Mike’s Cards game editor. Here is one game I would like to
see in Mike’s Cards:
Object: Build as many blackjack hands as possible.
Based on Yahoo! Tornado 21
Play: The tableau consists of five columns, each with a
capacity of five cards. Turn up cards from the stock, one at a
time, putting each in any of the five columns unless the total
of that column would exceed 21. Picture cards (normally jack,
queen and king) count 10; aces count 11 unless the column total
would exceed 21, in which case an ace counts one; a joker may
have any value between one and 11 inclusive.
When a column totals 21, or contains five cards totaling less
than 21, those cards are transferred to the wastepile. The total
of the discarded hand is added to the player’s score. The
game ends when all cards have been dealt and played, or when the
total of any column exceeds 21.
totals are displayed above the tableau. Placement of the stock
and face-up card should be near the tableau, for the
player’s convenience. The running score should be clearly
I have adapted the single-deck games Four Square and Draft to Mike’s
Cards. Four Square is described in the book 150 Solitaire Games
by Douglas Brown; Draft was created by Aaron Barnhart. Here are screenshots
of Four Square and Draft;
the actual game files will be available soon.
I would also like to be able to play the Captive Queens solitaire (other
solitaire programs call it Quadrille) in Mike’s Cards.
Unfortunately, I cannot make this game with the Mike’s Cards game
editor, as the game requires two sets of foundations: fives and sixes.
