    Hoki is a new form of traditional solitaire. It is played over many 5 minute games, or "attempts". You will progress through a legacy system with a unique and hand drawn deck of cards. If you complete it, you will unlock its fortune telling magic! This being a fortune telling book that is sealed in a bag until the legacy's criteria are fulfilled.

    Each round begins by dealing out an arrangement of 24 cards. The object of the game is to discard every card according to the game's rules. This is called "clearing" the deck.

    The strategies embedded in these rules make for a high level of planning, but simple decisions at any given moment. This provides an experience that is easy to pick up during your free time. It is meant to inspire curiosity and meditation with a statistically interesting puzzle.

    The backbone of the legacy system is a story that is grouped into three "Acts". Act One is a tutorial that helps with the strategies, but is not too obvious. Acts two and three are challenge based. The player will have to clear in all of 8 ways, then all of 24 ways. This transforms your deck by replacing cards depending on the win-state and gradually increasing the impact on the players strategic choices.

    After these challenges are complete, your deck is fully transformed, and the fortune telling book is "unlocked", the player is considered a "Seer" and will forever be presented with a fortune after every successful clear. There are 72 unique and poetic fortunes, and the result is influenced by the path that the player takes to clear the deck. After the legacy system - Hoki becomes a pastime.
