Cripple Mr. Onion!

For any Discworld fans out there, I made a Cripple Mr. Onion game for the arduboy! It’s a like a hilariously complicated combination of poker and blackjack, using an 8-suited deck. You can customize your character, accumulate money through betting, etc. As you gain money, your ‘rank’ increases, with the ultimate goal of being rich enough to become the Patrician of Ankh-Morpork!

Get the game here (and see my write-up if you’re curious): http://www.chrisfenton.com/cripple-mr-onion/

You need to rename the *.zip file to *.arduboy to make it compatible with one of the game loaders (I didn’t test it, but it should work. Unfortunately wordpress doesn’t allow uploading *.arduboy files for some reason), otherwise you can just unzip and compile like normal.

well shoot, i TRIED to make a card game aswell but it proved to be well beyond my limmited abilites, cant wait to play this though!

The card handling code is actually fairly generic - you could probably just copy a lot of it and modify it slightly if you wanted to make a more traditional card game.

thats what i was trying to do with this https://github.com/curlyc/deckocards

however it didnt work on the first attempty and i got sidetracked, maby ill pick it up again
