Re: Can anyone play CANASTA?

Apparently, there are minor differences to the international rules. These differences are outlined in the magazine, which can be found on flaxcottage.com in the "books" section.
Thank you

Of course John,
However, I have not "tittivated" it yet.
There is no menu, or anything fancy.
You can, of course have any updated versions when everything has had more of a test :D

Hi, I contacted Ross Goodley, the author of Blagger. He has confirmed that this game was not an Alligata project and that he had nothing to do with it. It looks like "Mitch" just did a bit of hacking. He also confirmed that "Wallie's Castle" is not one of his games. everygamegoing has it as a Ross G...

The games are only basic!! some aren't too bad though.... The book was published in 1982 by C.J.E. Microcomputers. The book author is...

Re: Bug in Blagger #2

In my opinion there is no canonical version.
This game was never released, and nobody seems sure where it came from.
It could have been (a slightly bugged) playground hack.
But, as lurkio says, just fix the obvious bugs, and leave it at that!
