Passive indicator of Cash Available

Post by JonSM99 » Mon Feb 27, 2017 10:25 pm

This is a small suggestion, but one I think would be useful.

You can tell by looking, without clicking anything, how many cards you have. But once you have 3 cards, you have to click on CARDS to see whether you have a cash available. I think it would be nice if there were an indicator that told you, by sight without having to click anything, when you had a cash available. It could be an asterisk on the CARDS button, a color change of the button, a little card icon next to it--whatever. You'd still have to click to see which ones, but you'd at least know whether you have a cash next turn along with how many cards you have. With quick games, it would make it easier to plan your next turn.

Thanks! :)

Hi Jon!
Thanks for your Input. I agree, this would be a very nice feature for future versions.

Go to Preferences / Effects / Show Cards at the start of your turn
Select "when you have a set"

but this Option takes some time from your turn to close the Card set again if you do not want to cash. I usually check my cards before my next turn. So i need two clicks to open and close the set again ... So I think this would still be a small but nice feature. Not a big thing, but nice ;-)

Yea, I think this is a good idea. I'm thinking just adding an ! exclamation mark on the 'X Cards' button when there's a set might be the way to do it

Yes, I think that would be great! Thanks! :D

I do have my prefs set to show me my cards when I have a set, but I'm looking for an indicator that tells me before my next turn starts. In fact, with a passive indicator, I could even turn off the existing option and save having to click, as GFips noted.

Let's just add more turn time to be fair to newbies.
