NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     canfield, cfscores - the solitaire card game canfield

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     cfscores [-a] [username]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     If you have never played solitaire before, it is recommended
that you
     consult  a solitaire instruction book.  In Canfield, tableau
cards may be
     built on each other downward in alternate colors.  An entire
pile must be
     moved  as  a  unit  in building.  Top cards of the piles are
available to be
     played on foundations, but never into empty spaces.

     Spaces must be filled from the stock.  The top card  of  the
stock also is
     available  to  be  played on foundations or built on tableau
piles.  After
     the stock is exhausted, tableau spaces may  be  filled  from
the talon and
     the player may keep them open until he wishes to use them.

     Cards  are  dealt  from  the hand to the talon by threes and
this repeats until
 there are no more cards in the hand or the player quits.
To have
     cards  dealt  onto  the  talon the player types `ht' for his
move.  Foundation
 base cards are also automatically moved to the  foundation when they
     become available.

     The  command  `c'  causes canfield to maintain card counting
statistics on
     the bottom of the  screen.   When  properly  used  this  can
greatly increase
     one's chances of winning.

     The  rules  for  betting are somewhat less strict than those
used in the official
 version of the game.  The  initial  deal  costs  $13.
You may quit at
     this  point  or  inspect the game.  Inspection costs $13 and
allows you to
     make as many moves as possible without moving any cards from
your hand to
     the  talon.   (The  initial  deal  places three cards on the
talon; if all
     these cards are used, three more are made  available.)   Finally, if the
     game  seems  interesting, you must pay the final installment
of $26.  At
     this point you are credited at the rate of $5 for each  card
on the foundation;
  as the game progresses you are credited with $5 for
each card
     that is moved to the foundation.  Each run through the  hand
after the
     first costs $5.  The card counting feature costs $1 for each
unknown card
     that is identified.  If the information is toggled  on,  you
are only
     charged  for  cards  that  became  visible since it was last
turned on.  Thus
     the maximum cost of information is  $34.   Playing  time  is
charged at a
     rate of $1 per minute.

     With  no arguments, the program cfscores prints out the current status of
     your canfield account.   If  a  username  is  specified,  it
prints out the
     status  of  that user's canfield account.  If the -a flag is
specified, it
     prints out the canfield accounts for  all  users  that  have
played the game
     since the database was set up.
