NAME

Games::Domino - Interface to the Domino game.

VERSION

Version 0.11

DESCRIPTION

This is a very basic Domino game played by two players (Computer vs Human) at the moment. This is just an initial draft of Proof of Concept, also to get my head around the game which I have never played in my life before.There is a cheat flag which makes tiles for "Computer" visible to the other player "Human". Avoid this flag if possible.By default the cheat flag is turned off.There is a debug switch as well which is turned off by default. They are arranged like here before we shuffle to start the the game.

    [0 | 0]
    [0 | 1] [1 | 1]
    [0 | 2] [1 | 2] [2 | 2]
    [0 | 3] [1 | 3] [2 | 3] [3 | 3]
    [0 | 4] [1 | 4] [2 | 4] [3 | 4] [4 | 4]
    [0 | 5] [1 | 5] [2 | 5] [3 | 5] [4 | 5] [5 | 5]
    [0 | 6] [1 | 6] [2 | 6] [3 | 6] [4 | 6] [5 | 6] [6 | 6]

    use strict; use warnings;
    use Games::Domino;

    my $game = Games::Domino->new();

SYNOPSIS

Below is the working code for the Domino game using the Games::Domino package. The game script 'play-domino.pl' is supplied with the distribution and on install , is available to play with.

    use strict; use warnings;
    use Games::Domino;

    $|=1;

    my ($response);
    do {
        my $game = Games::Domino->new({ debug => 1 });
        do { $game->play; $game->show; } until $game->is_over;
        $game->result;

        print {*STDOUT} "Do you wish to continue playing Domino with computer (Y/N)? ";
        $response = <STDIN>;
        $response =~ s/[\f\r\n]*$//g;

        while (defined($response) && ($response !~ /Y|N/i)) {
            print {*STDOUT} "Invalid response, please enter (Y/N). ";
            $response = <STDIN>;
            $response =~ s/[\f\r\n]*$//g;
        }
    } while (defined($response) && ($response =~ /Y/i));

    print {*STDOUT} "\nThank you.\n";

Once it is installed, it can be played on a terminal/command window as below:
