Last night a friend of ours had a graduation party and hosted a Texas Hold’em tournament. We had 16 players at 2 tables with 12 minute blinds. 4 Places were payed with the payout being $80, $50, $20, and $10. I had a very good night and even managed to land a Royal Flush! Ironically the Royal Flush only netted me about 200 in chips while later an off-suit 7-2 on the big blind netted me about 1500 and eliminated 3 players when a 2 2 K flopped. The cards kept falling my way and by the time we combined everyone into a final table with only 8 left I had single handedly eliminated all but 1 person. No one wanted to merge to my table, which had now been termed, “The Table of Death”. But then the question of ‘poker ‘etiquette’ came up.
If you’re looking for a quick and easy game then give M.U.N.C.H. a try. I just completed it and wanted to make it available to everyone. It’s very compact (less then 500k download, single 1.3 Meg file when uncompressed) and easy to install (simply unrar it into any directory) and easy to run (just double click on the exe file “Munch”. The object of the game is to consume anything smaller than you. As you consume more stuff you grow bigger, allowing you to consume bigger enemies. As your levels progress the enemies become more challenging.
Not much bells and whistles in this game, it was written as simple as possible. It does have an option for sound, but to save on bandwidth I left out the sound files. It uses simple .wav files and if you would like to add sound to the game then simply look at the Sound option in the game and it will list the files that are needed and what sounds they are for. Simply find a wav file that sounds like a “slurp” and then give it the exact names as described and place them in the same directory as the exe. You can even put your favorite theme wav in to play in the games background. The game graphics are very basic, but this is a fun and addictive game written for speed and enjoyment. Please comment if you try the game and let me know what you think. The only file this program creates is a 1k ‘munch.dat’ file that stores game settings and player highscores which is kept in the same directory as the exe. If you enjoy this game then let me know and I will present other game projects that I’ve done and/or been involved with. This game is freeware.
