Board » Chris' Puzzle 1.0 fat

Chris' Puzzle transforms PICT and JPEG image files into electronic jigsaw puzzles. The puzzles are based on a unique grid pattern, rather than the traditional puzzle structure of square pieces embellished with hook & eye joints. The unusual pieces to which that grid pattern gives rise make the geometry of the puzzles richer, while adding to their overall complexity and challenge.
 
But since challenge is one thing and aggravation is another, a few features of real puzzles have been omitted - pieces are never rotated, flipped upside down, or still stuck together in little clumps when they are dumped out on this virtual table. So all you have to do is find the matching pieces and put 'em together.

Board » RChess - v 2.2.2

RChess 2.2.2 - Fills a market gap, by being easily beaten at its lower levels. Unkind people have suggested that this feature applies at the higher levels too. Usually beats its programmer on level 4, often on level 3, and occasionally on level 2. Is given away free, gratis, without charge, and for nothing. Nor are you required to pay for it. Examines up to 1500 moves per second on LCIII; up to 3600 per second on Quadra 650. The natural awe with which naive people regard these numbers should be tempered by the fact that most of the moves examined are stupid ones that no human player would contemplate at all.

Board » Stones 1.1

Stones 1.1 is an ancient African or Mesopotamian game. I have heard it referred to as Awele, Ouare, Kalah, and Mancala. I couldn't choose, so I went for something simple. It is played by moving stones around a board. The AI isn't bad, and it's a fun little game to kill a few minutes here and there. Stones is freeware. Version 1.1 now saves user preferences automatically, and has new sounds, this time not so blatently ripped off.
