Drac is a free, open-source, portable card game library that uses
 [SDL]( It provides a good set of C++ classes
 and functions that help simplify the development of card games.
 Simple games especially solitaire games can be created using Drac
 with minimal effort. It can also be extended to accommodate more
 complex games such as [Tong-its](

* Card drag and drop. Drac supports four types of dragging. You'll get
 to know them once you start using Drac in your card game projects. Drag
 and drop in Drac can be as simple as setting flags that determine how a
 certain area accepts cards that are being dropped.
* Uses data structures to represent cards and card collections. Cards, card
 stacks, and card regions, including the game itself, are represented by
 classes. This simplifies development since you only need to define the
 regions your game requires then configure those regions based on the
 rules of the game.
* Includes utility functions for getting card information such as card rank,
 suit, value, etc. Also includes functions for detecting overlapped cards
 and determining which card to accept based on the size of the area that
* A sample game, the famous Klondike is included to demonstrate how to use
 Drac. The actual game only requires a few lines of code, Drac takes care
 of the rest. A brief tutorial explaining how Klondike was made can be
 found [here](
* Includes a simple animation that you can use when a player wins similar
 to the one in Solitaire for Windows.
* Portable. Has been proven to run on [Nokia Maemo platform]
 ( (now part of MeeGo),
 [Sega Dreamcast](,
 [Popcorn Hour](,
 [BeOS]( and

* Bitmap Font by [Marius]( (old dead link)
* [James Brown]( for his help and for his great
 program [CardLib]( which inspired
 this project.
* [Oxymoron for the card images used](
* [Stephen Murphy's]( QCard32.dll
 for the card symbols used. (old dead link)
