Amazing work! 

That was a great little puzzle game! I liked how one has already all cards in the own hand, but thanks to the huge amount it gets harder and harder to be foresightful. The level design was a good fit to that as well, because it never felt frustratingly punished or something. Quite polished, slick UI, fantastic piano music in the background... Well, congratulations for making such a nice jam game! :) Happily I recommended it along with three other entries in a compilation article about the Ludum Dare 41 - and I included also one minute of gameplay in the related video. Thanks again for your good work! And before I forget it: Belated Happy 16th Birthday, Chase! :)

Best wishes,
Sebastian
