Description

NOTE: We are moving our repository to GitHub: https://github.com/rbuccigrossi/Anywhere_Board_Games

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.

Please note that Google Hangout does not support custom hangout apps for iOS and Android at this time, so for mobile devices you will need to use the 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.

    Quite useful software because of feature to upload my own card images. Some troubles related to the fact it is written in PHP, but overall impression is good.

    Initially I had not rated this to the full star power, as my mom's ipad couldn't access the program through google hangouts and we needed to use that since we are in different states. However, my mom has a laptop that got it working and the support emails I received were very helpful and prompt! We had wanted to try playing our favorite card games just the two of us in a setting like we were really together in person, unlike words with friends of facebook. So, with the help of the programmers and creators we were able to get the boards set up how we needed for cards by using the shields from the Words game to hide our cards from each other once we loaded the deck of cards. It was so great to be able to hang out with my mom even though we were so many miles apart and it was like we were together since we were on each other's video windows as well! Thank you!

    So far this is exactly what I have been looking for to play a family card game live online.
