Dutch Mathematics Education Montana Delphi Walking Cycling Matthew Coster Links Monte Carlo 5 on a row Multris Montana The CardGame Montana is played using 104 cards (ace, 2, ..., king of diamonds, hearts, clubs and spades appear twice). All cards are placed on a table in 8 rows of 13 cards. The first step is to remove the 8 aces, and place them in front of the first column, (red and black have to alternate). Afterwards the game starts. You can move a card to one of the empty places. There is one restriction: The empty place can only be filled by the card which is the successor of the card left of it. So right of the knight of clubs the queen of clubs has to be placed. Right of a king no card can be led. Your task is to complete the game and have 8 times a row of Ace ... King of a suit. Tools for Montana. Below the 104 cards there are some buttons, and left of it there is a panel with the buttons "OK", "Warning", "To", "From". These 4 buttons are working together with the right mousebutton. OK: While OK has been pressed and a card is selected by the right mousebutton, this card will be marked green. You can use this color to mark the card as a card which is conveniently situated. TIP: mark queens in the one but last column. By placing a king right of it, the king lays at the end of the row, and no place will be lost. The same is true for knights in the two but last column. Warning: While Warning has been pressed and a card is selected by the right mousebutton, this card will be marked pink. You can use this color to mark the card as a card which is unconveniently situated. TIP: mark in the hearts-row the 3 of hearts if this card lays at the place where the 2 of hearts has to be placed. The 3 of hearts has to be removed as soon as possible, and it is very dangerous to place successors behind this card. To: If To has been selected, then after clicking with the right mousebutton a card the places are marked blue where this card can be laid. If this place is empty you can move the card without problems, otherwise you have to make some more steps. From: If From has been selected, then after clicking with the right mousebutton a card the cards are marked blue which can be laid at this place. Download the last version (v1.1) of Montana!!
