Huge update to Sage Solitaire Released

A huge update to Sage Solitaire was just released. The update includes two new play modes, Vegas Mode and True Grit Mode.

– VEGAS MODE which takes normal Single Deck Sage and adds a persistent bank in-between games and wagering within each game. It’s my take on the way other games do streak-scoring, or daily challenges. This has a lot of similar features that make each game intense and important, but without limiting the number of times you can play in a day, or putting high-scores dramatically out of reach.

– TRUE GRIT MODE is for-real permadeath — none of this wimpy start the game over at 0 stuff. Unlike Vegas mode, in True Grit you can never reset your total bank, and if you go below zero, you can never play the mode again. Of course, it comes with all the leaderboards of normal Vegas mode, just everything is a lot more intense.

Along with the usual assortment of bug fixes and tweaks. If you haven’t played Sage Solitaire, you should look in the mirror and try to figure out where you went wrong in life.
