This is an implementation of the sets game. This code was written by David Ashley dashxdr@gmail.com http://www.xdr.com/dash http://www.linuxmotors.com This code is released under the terms of the GPL, whatever the latest version is. Build under linux by just doing make You need the SDL library to be installed. http://www.libsdl.org Under mac OSX you can build by doing make -f Makefile.osx You need to have the SDL sdl framework installed. *********************************************************** There are 81 cards in the game. 12 cards are shown at a time. The object is to identify the sets. The upper left corner of the window shows how many sets have been discovered out of how many that exist. Hitting the spacebar redeals 12 cards. The deck is shuffled after every "hand". It's not so much like the real game, it's just a one player version to let you practice finding the sets. Hitting the return key will expose all the undiscovered sets. Hitting escape exits the game. Clicking on cards selects them, if 3 cards are highlighted that are a valid undiscovered set, they'll get marked. The marking appears as digits that show up on each card. The first set found will have 1's, the next set will have 2's, etc. RULES OF THE GAME Each card has 4 characteristics: COLOR: Either RED, GREEN or BLUE NUMBER: Either ONE, TWO OR THREE items SHAPE: Either CIRCLE, SQUARE or TRIANGLE TEXTURE: Either EMPTY, SOLID or LINED Since there are 4 characteristics, each with 3 possibilities, there are 3*3*3*3 or 81 possible combinations. A "set" is 3 cards together where each characteristic is either the same for all 3 cards, or different for all three cards. For example: RED, ONE, CIRCLE, SOLID RED, TWO, CIRCLE, SOLID RED, THREE, CIRCLE, SOLID Forms a set. The color is all the same, the shape is all the same, the texture is all the same, and the number is different. All you have to do is identify the sets. Click on each of the 3 cards in a new set and it'll be marked. Enjoy! -Dave
