Description

Anywhere Board Games (ABG) allows users to play board and card games on the web in real time on multiple machines (PC, Linux, iPhone, iPad, and Android). ABG runs as a Google+ Hangout App (go to http://anywhereboardgames.com to start it), or as a stand-alone PHP app.

Unlike other gaming environments, we had a peculiar vision: projecting the main board on our table and using laptops or tablets to control our hands (with other friends joining in remotely).

ABG runs on PHP 5 and Apache (which is provided with the Windows installer). It supports flipping, stacking, rotating, rolling, and shuffling of pieces, so most board and card games are playable.

    Why review my own software? To be fair and open. Right now (as of 7/16/2012) the release of ABG on Google+ Hangouts makes it significantly easier to use, but we are definitely missing help text (for both end-users and game designers). However, I was able to get a good game of Settlers of Catan in and a bunch of games of the Pokemon TCG starter set with my 8 year old. So I achieved my initial goal: to be able to remotely play games with my father who lives pretty far away. I hope to continue to expand the project to make it more useful for the general public.
