4BLACKJACK0

1This is the card game of 21 played casino-style. You may place a bet from 1
1to 500 gold pieces (providing you have that many) per hand. The object is to
1collect a hand worth more than the dealer's but less than or equal to 21. If
1your hand equals exactly 21 after the first two cards are dealt, this is
1BLACKJACK, and you win twice the amount of your bet, no matter what the dealer
1has. If you stay under or equal to 21 in five cards, you automatically win
1the amount of your bet. Otherwise, the higher of the two hands (under 21)
1wins the amount of your bet.

1Your choices in each hand are: [H]it - Accept another card, [S]tand - No more
1cards, and [D]ouble Down. This may only be done after the first 2 cards. It
1doubles your bet, but you only get one more card, no matter what. Dealer
1always hits 16 or below and stands on 17 and above.

1Card Values: Number cards [1-10] are worth their value, face cards [J,Q,K] are
1worth 10, and the Ace [A] is worth 1 or 11. The suits of the cards [H,D,S,C]
1are meaningless in this game, but are shown to simulate the real thing.
`5============================================================================
4RUSSIAN ROULETTE0

1In this game, you are given a six shooter with two bullets in it. You must
1then hold this gun against you head and pull the trigger. If the gun does not
1fire, you get 5 gold pieces. However, if the gun fires, not only do you lose
1your head but you lose carrier AND any remaining time you have for the
1remainder of the day.
`6============================================================================
4WHEEL OF FORTUNE0

1This game is a based upon a wheel with forty positions on it. Twenty of these
1are marked 6$11, ten are marked 6$21, four are marked 6$51, two 6$101, and one 6$201,
1plus one marked 6HOUSE1, one marked 6RESPIN1, and one marked 6WINNER1. You can place
1a bet of 1 to 500 gold pieces on any of the dollar value squares, and the wheel
1is spun. If it comes up on that number, you win your bet times that dollar
1value. If it comes up on another number or 6HOUSE1, you automatically lose
1your bet. If it comes up on 6WINNER1, you win your bet at 1:1 regardless of the
1number you had bet on. If it shows 6RESPIN1, the wheel is spun again with the
1same bets in place. There is no limit on the number of plays per day.

4UNSOLVED PHRASES0

1This is similar to the game hangman, in which you are shown a puzzle and must
1guess the letters of the puzzle. For each phrase, you are given one turn per
1day, in which you can guess until you get an incorrect letter. It costs one
1gold piece to play a phrase, and five gold pieces to buy a vowel. The payoff
1for guessing a correct letter is one gold piece for each time the letter
1appears in the puzzle. The only exception to the above scoring is if only
1vowels are left, in which case a message will be displayed indicating there
1are only vowels left, and they will be free of charge (no gold gained or
1lost). Also, the prize for finishing a puzzle is ten gold pieces.

1A phrase may have a hint, which will be displayed immediately before the
1phrase. Also, there is a five second time limit once the phrase is displayed
1until you must guess, or it will automatically be considered incorrect.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
