Here is Week 7 of 52 for 52 Weeks of Game Development. I decided to work on another table top game for this week's piece. This one is a solitaire type card game based on the fact that I hate sitting in traffic when I go to work. I know my commute isn't the worst, but it's not optimal to say the least. An average day I probably have a 180 minute roundtrip commute. That's a lot of Game of Thrones on audiobook, but I'd much rather avoid it.

The game is pretty simple: you have three stacks of cards that represent the three lanes of traffic. Each deck has the top card facing up. Each traffic card has a value (minutes) associated with it as well as a rage value. During your turn you decide to drive down the lane you're in or try to switch into another lane. The goal is the arrive at your destination with the lowest time possible. Since there are 15 cards per stack, the fastest time to completion is 35 minutes, which is probably impossible.

I'd say this game was more of a way for me to express myself than anything else.
