CANFIELD(6)									      CANFIELD(6)

NAME
       canfield, cfscores - the solitaire card game canfield

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/games/canfield
       /usr/games/cfscores

DESCRIPTION
       If  you have never played solitaire before, it is recommended that you consult a solitaire
       instruction book. In Canfield, tableau cards may be built on each other downward in alter-
       nate  colors.  An  entire pile must be moved as a unit in building. Top cards of the piles
       are available to be played on foundations, but never into empty spaces.

       Spaces must be filled from the stock. The top card of the stock also is	available  to  be
       played  on  foundations	or  built on tableau piles. After the stock is exhausted, tableau
       spaces may be filled from the talon and the player may keep them open until he  wishes  to
       use them.

       Cards  are  dealt from the hand to the talon by threes and this repeats until there are no
       more cards in the hand or the player quits. To have cards dealt onto the talon the  player
       types 'ht' for his move. Foundation base cards are also automatically moved to the founda-
       tion when they become available.

       The command 'c' causes canfield to maintain card counting statistics on the bottom of  the
       screen.	When properly used this can greatly increase one's chances of winning.

       The  rules for betting are somewhat less strict than those used in the official version of
       the game.  The initial deal costs $13.  You may quit at this point or  inspect  the  game.
       Inspection  costs  $13 and allows you to make as many moves as possible without moving any
       cards from your hand to the talon.  (The initial deal places three cards on the talon;  if
       all  these  cards  are  used,  three more are made available.)  Finally, if the game seems
       interesting, you must pay the final installment of $26.	At this point you are credited at
       the  rate  of  $5 for each card on the foundation; as the game progresses you are credited
       with $5 for each card that is moved to the foundation.  Each run through  the  hand  after
       the  first  costs  $5.	The  card counting feature costs $1 for each unknown card that is
       identified.  If the information is toggled on, you are only charged for cards that  became
       visible	since it was last turned on.  Thus the maximum cost of information is $34.  Play-
       ing time is charged at a rate of $1 per minute.

       With no arguments, the program cfscores prints out the current  status  of  your  canfield
       account.  If a user name is specified, it prints out the status of their canfield account.
       If the -a flag is specified, it prints out the canfield accounts for all users  that  have
       played the game since the database was set up.

FILES

BUGS
