I love playing board games. One of my favorite things to do is to consider the rules or thinking that must have gone into board games. I think trying to code a game up is an incredible exercise in breaking down interesting problems that usually don’t need frameworks to solve. It’s just you really understanding logic.
Here’s a list of board games I like and know fairly well. If you’re interested in pairing on them and trying to figure them out, ping me on twitter. Some of these are more interesting to code up and solve the AI for them, some of them are interesting to just encode the rules.
