Something new...a CARD game?!
This one may have thrown some of you for
a loop. Considering that I favor action/adventure/puzzle type games, especially
those with a fast pace and instant gratification, a card game seems kind of
like an anticlimax.
In fact, not really. Judging from the feedback of my sister Jen, I think I got a
few things very right this time, gaming-wise. Egyptian RatScrew combines both
speed and action with your typical mundane Solitaire/Minesweeper-type rules.
This game has broad appeal.
A Pioneering Effort (?)
There's no way to be absolutely
sure, but it looks like nobody else has yet come out with a decent computer
version of Egyptian RatScrew. This statement revolves around the fact that I
can browse the first 30 links of any search results for "Egyptian RatScrew" and
come up with plenty of fan material, but not one single direct link to a
computer game or at least a reference to a computer game.
So I guess my game could quite
possibly be the first of its kind. I've tried to incorporate several of the
rule variations in it (you can turn on and off various "rules" depending on
whether or not you like them). ERS fans, I'd appreciate it if you e-mail me (firstname.lastname@example.org)
if there are some important rules I've left out.

NEW!! ERS slap
