Before starting play, user’s have the option of personalizing the game by entering their names. Personalized instruction prompts appear during play.
The dice are rolled with a click of the “Roll Dice” button. Dice are selected for scoring by clicking on them. Selected dice fade and can be unselected if desired. Dice that are already scored become more faded and cannot be clicked.
Game instructions are hidden, but will appear with a mouse-click on the “Show Instructions” link.
The Game is mobile-friendly and can be played on a tablet or smartphone. It does require a modern browser (not IE8!).
Note: There is special “end game” effect. You can take a shortcut and view this effect by clicking in the upper left corner of the game page.
I’ve also created a Ruby version of this game which is played in terminal. It can be found on GitHub.
I recently had the privilege of attending Cleveland Give Camp and working on a website for a great charity—GASPohio.org. The site is built on my custom WordPress theme (incorporating Foundation by Zurb for responsiveness).
The project was completed in two days with a five-person team (this included a project manager and graphic designer). There were two experienced coders on the team—with a great overall mix of talents and personalities. Two representatives from the charity worked with us for the entire weekend. It was a fun and fast-paced project.
