Solitaire Till Dawn Again

Send Article to a Friend
Director of Technical Services, Baka Industries Inc.

Last month, Rick Holzgrafe (of Scarab of Ra and Applicon fame) released a new version of his popular shareware card game, Solitaire Till Dawn. Version 2.0 includes a number of new solo card games, unlimited undo and redo, and a larger card display.

Most obvious will be the fifteen new games in STD 2.0, for a total of 24. The package includes two games invented exclusively for STD, called Manx and Tabby Cat, along with such classics as Klondike, Canfield, Pyramid, Forty Thieves, and Spider. Summaries of each game's rules are available online, and the illustrated documentation comes in PocketDoc format, which can be read onscreen or printed.

STD offers separate score-keeping and preferences for multiple users through the use of individual prefs files. Games may be saved as well; saved games can take full advantage (as easily as games in progress) of the unlimited undo and redo feature, which allows the user to back up a game step by step even as far as the beginning, run it forward again step by step, or "change history" by selecting a new move.

You can obtain Software Till Dawn directly from the author (see details below) or on the Internet at:

Registered owners of STD 1.0 may obtain the upgrade on their own and use it at no further cost. They may also mail a $5 check or money order (drawn on a U.S. bank) and a current address; OR a blank floppy, self-addressed disk mailer, and sufficient return postage, to:

Semicolon Software
Solitaire Till Dawn 2.0 Upgrade
P.O. Box 371
Cupertino, CA 95015-0371 USA

The $20 shareware payment should also be sent to that address. Although Rick doesn't yet plan to leave his day job, he's been pleased to see that STD 2.0 is his quickest shareware seller to date.
