BULLSHIT THE CARD GAME:

As a newbie programmer, I've used Visual Basic 6.0 to make a very basic version of Bullshit the card game for the PC operating system.  Read the readme.txt file for more information.

System Requirements:
Windows 95 or higher
Visual Basic 6.0 Runtime Files Service Pack 5
160KB of Hard Disk Space
800x600 Resolution (640x480 will work but the Move Log will get cut off)

Playing Bullshit:
The object of the game is to play any cards you have that match the number of the card that is supposed to be played that turn. The game starts with the player that is holding the 2 of Clubs. If you don't have the card you're supposed to play, you should bluff your way by playing a different card as whatever the card is supposed to be that turn. Everything you're supposed to know is indicated on screen. You add cards to the Pile to Add by double-clicking them and you remove them from the Pile to Add the same way. You will be given the option to call "bullshit" on a computer player after they play their cards assuming another computer player doesn't call it first. Calling a "bullshit" correctly will force the player who bluffed to take all cards in the pile. Calling a "bullshit" incorrectly will force the player calling "bullshit" to take the entire pile of cards. The first player to get rid of all their cards will be deemed the winner.
