Coises’ Software

These programs are free (as in “free speech” and as in “free beer”). Accordingly, they are not warranted in any way, nor can support be promised; but I’d be happy to hear about your experiences with them, and I will try to solve any problems you have with them if I can. Send e-mail to Software@Coises.com.

Games
Coises’ Expectation version 2.0.1
Coises’ Expectation is a solitaire word game in which you try to form nine words simultaneously while seeing the upcoming letters just seven at a time. It’s written in HTML and JavaScript. There is nothing to download; the link will take you directly to the game and you can begin playing. (However, be patient when first opening the page, as there may be some delay while your browser acquires the list of over 280,000 words used to check your input.) Version 2 adds an undo—at the expense of requiring you to click the plus sign shown after you play each set of seven letters to draw again—and should be much more tablet-friendly than version 1.
Coises’ Hunt & Peck version 1
Coises’ Hunt & Peck is a solitaire word game in which you select letters to form words. It’s written in HTML and JavaScript. There is nothing to download; the link will take you directly to the game.
Poker Squared version 1
