Stained Glass is a wonderful and original shareware card game that was the inspiration behind Nick Schlott's Tesserae, a commercial game published by GameTek in 1991 that features VGA graphics but same concepts. J. Michael Ambrosio's review says it all:

"Stained Glass is a kaleidoscopic cross between checkers and a jump-the-pegs game. You start out with a playing field full of colored tiles. The tiles must be jumped over one another, with the jumped tiles being removed one by one until you get down to only one tile. But there's a catch: you can only jump a red tile over a color that contains red (like red, orange, or purple), and so on for the other colors. The result is a mind-boggling puzzle that has you calculating not only angles, but color combinations as well.

Stained Glass is unique... in that it uses color as an integral part of the game play, not just as a design element. It definitely qualifies as a cool text-mode game, and its author, Kent Brewster, is a pretty cool guy himself. Not only did he invent a unique and challenging game, but he is also a Hugo and Nebula-nominated science fiction author and publisher. His web site is definitely worth a visit." Two thumbs up!
