Our company, Tesseract Mobile, is making a series of "how to play" videos for our most popular solitaire games. This game is one of my favorites, so I tried something new - adding my very own strategy tips to the video. I'd have preferred a more subtle approach, but my fiancee/business partner insisted on using my picture and the phrase "Laura says:" rather than just introducing the tips with the phrase "Strategy tip". He reads business books, so I yielded to his expertise. Yikes.
Anyway... Casket was one of our first requested games. We started the app with 25 solitaire games and the rest came from customer requests (so you know somebody likes them). Back then, in 2009, it was just Josh and me working in our basement, and Josh still had a full-time job on top of that, so I had to do all sorts of things that were foreign to me, like writing the code to make these game layouts. This one was tough. There are a lot of elements to this game, and I don't do things sloppy, so I wanted that casket lid to curve, and I wanted those jewels to be centered, and it was darn challenging.
So this game has always had a special place in my heart. Also, it's really fun to play, so check it out if you like games.
And kudos to for producing the video. Great work, Alexis!

Robert Heinlein did a short story involving a tesseract house. Those tesseracts - they get around, at least in the world of fiction. Glad to hear of another author that wrote of them.
It was all of 17 degrees when I went out today. I love the winter, but I'm ready for spring blossoms!
This album is extraordinary and you should absolutely check it out!
True happiness comes from the joy of deeds well done, the zest of creating things new.
