The Mindreader will shuffle a deck of cards, and then lay out three rows of nine cards.  The player selects one of the cards in secret, and then tells the program which of the three rows contains the secret card.  This is done by pressing "1", "2", or "3".  Two additional times, the cards will be shuffled, laid out in rows, and the player will indicate which row contains their chosen card.  The Mindreader will then reveal the player's selection, using 8-bit clairvoyance!
