I have a difficult task for me and i do not know how to start to solve it.
Its a multiplayer card game.
Player take 8 cards and i want to recognize when a player have 4 same cards in hand, and if a player have 3 in a row , 4 in a row or 5 in a row all from the same kind.
Cards have a variable called "play" wich is represent the animation frame.
Kinds ar 4 -> hearts , clubs , diamonds and spades
and cards are 7 8 9 10 J Q K A
in total 32 cards.
card.play = 0 is the 7 of hearts
card.play = 1 is the 8 of hearts
card.play = 8 is the 7 of clubs
4 of a kind is only for 9 10 J Q K and A
And a trick here is that you can not take a 3 in a row inside a 5 in a row 7 8 9 10 J is 5 in a row but you cannot use this cards for make and 4 in a row or 3 in a row.
Also you cannot use a card from 4 of a kind to create 3 in a row etc.
Each card can be used once.
So, Im looking for a direction how to start building this.
