CLOCK SOLITAIRE

Clock Solitaire is played by dealing the entire deck of 52 cards
in packs of four cards which are then arranged in the order of a
clock. Twelve packs form a circle for each hour and a
thirteenth pack lies in the center of the clock layout. The
top card of the center pack is then turned face up. The
object of this solitaire game is to move the last turned up
card to its respective pack or hour position on the clock dial.
Each card moves to the pile of its own number, jack counts as
11, queen counts as 12, and the king is 13. The king is always
placed in the center of the clock layout. The card is then
placed face up on the bottom of the pack it was moved to. The
top card of that pack is then also turned face up. This card
becomes the next card to be moved to its respective hour
on the clock dial. Play continues until all the packs
are exposed and contain four of kind in each hour of the layout
in which case you have beaten Clock Solitaire. If all four
kings have been exposed in the center of the clock, the game
is over and you lose.


STARTING CLOCK SOLITAIRE

From your DOS prompt, type CLOCK and press the ENTER key. In
order for Clock to run, you must be logged onto the
directory where CLOCK.EXE, CLOCK01.INF, and CLOCK02.INF reside.

shuffled and the Clock layout will be dealt out. Place your
mouse cursor on the card to be moved. Press and hold the
left mouse button and drag the selected card to its new
destination. Be sure to place the card over the destination

card. More than half of the card being moved should be over the
destination card otherwise you will receive an error message.
If the card to be moved is to be placed on the same pack, just
release the button.

If you wish to quit playing before the game is won, press the
right mouse button. You will be asked to verify if you really
want to quit.

movement. The game can be played faster when this is turned
off. The message ON or OFF will be displayed to the right of
the Animate option.

Selecting this option will allow you to choose from 16 different
types of card backs. When selecting this option, the current
