Play almost any card game.

Overview

The light-weight card game for Mac OS X that lets you play anything you like? Say bonjour to... Joueur.

Joueur is the perfect card game. Put simply, there are no rules. We provide the cards, you play the game. If you know the rules to a card game, chances are you'll be able to play it with Joueur. If there's two of you using Joueur on a local network, you can play a game together - we call it Bonjour Joueurs! ("Hello Players!")

There are many card games for Mac available out there - some of them are awesome. But often the games you'd like to play include rules or elements that are simply not accommodated by some software. For example, there are hundreds of variations on the game of Rummy. So what if you enjoy playing Russian-Three-Meld-Strip-Rummy-With-No-Aces-High? What about it's more obscure variant, Russian-Three-and-a-Half-Meld-Strip-Rummy-With-Only-Aces-High-and-Uttoxeter-Rules-on-a-Thursday-Afternoon? Do you wait for a shareware author to publish a Rummy game that allows these variations? Does such a shareware author actually exist to rise to this mighty challenge? Or do you simply launch Joueur?

If your game makes use of a pack of cards or two, you can play it using this software.

Features:

  • Mac OS X 10.4 "Tiger" compatible
  • Pure Cocoa software: Native to Mac OS X
  • Allows almost all Patience or Solitaire style card games
  • Allows many two-player card games
  • Built-in Bonjour instant networked gameplay (registered users only)
  • High quality graphic designs by Marie Blunck and Damian Jaques

I really love the idea behind Joueur (the app provides the cards, you have to bring the rules), and while most OS X card games look horrible, the interface is pretty nice. But it feels more like a 0.1 beta than a 1.0 release. There is a great lack of features. The handling hardly couldn't be worse. I'd pay up to $10 (even if I think a tiny app like this should be free), if the gameplay wasn't that bad and if internet games were supported. $35? You gotta be kidding!

Just what I was looking for! Well, then again, may be not. I'm looking for a card game engine such as Joueur, in which I can create my own rules to fill in the gap of the lack of classic card games besides the standard Hearts and Spades--Pinochle, Bid Whist, 500, etc. But as I tinkered around with Joueur, I discovered that the above mentioned games are partnership games. Joueur will only handle one opponent via LAN. I visited the site and was really shocked to find a lack of help and forums. What a shame--it has so much potential! Any response, Signwave?
