A Team for the Job
The most I've ever accomplished in four days was manage to get over a particularly bad head cold. StormAlligator, on the other hand, managed to create A Team for the Job, a short card game where the goal is to have all five card classes in play at the same time before your opponent. The first to gather a complete team will be chosen by the king for a special mission!
During play, hover your mouse over a card to get a description of its abilities, and click to select it during your turn. By figuring out what card (or rather, character) to play, you can effectively block, remove, and otherwise hinder your opponent's progress. The Thief, for example, forces your opponent to discard a card, while the Witch will allow you to counter an opponent's card, but will both cost you the Witch herself and make you discard another card from your hand. Thus, it becomes a constant back and forth battle of strategy as you an your opponent struggle to thwart each other at every turn as you both try to get all five characters into play before the other. Card games like this, which go beyond the usual solitaire and poker combinations, are few and far between, and it's nice to see something new come around. The game is short enough to play a couple of rounds during breaks, but due to it's random nature, the possibilities for playthroughs are close to infinite, which is more than you can say for your boss' patience as you wile away the company's precious time.
