Hey, cousin!

Patty Duke Game Preview Screenshot

I thought I'd post an early screenshot of the game I'm currently working on, the Patty Duke Game! It's based on the the Patty Duke Show TV series that ran from 1963-1966. Interestingly, on the inside of the box, before the rules, it talks about Patty and Cathy Duke, even though in the show their last name is Lane. True, the actress that plays both of them is named Patty Duke, but there is no Cathy Duke.
Anyway, I'm making decent progress, but it'll probably be a few weeks before it's ready to play. The challenge with this one as opposed to the Donny & Marie game is that there is a memory aspect to it. The AI needs to remember which cards it has seen, whether it was the entire card or just the girl's name ("Patty" or "Cathy,") and make decisions accordingly. Other than that, I don't anticipate there being too many problems with coding this one. It's a relatively simple game.
