This is going to seem like an odd post, but basically I've been coding my board game and I wanted to share progress so far as it's been hard work and pretty pleased with the results so far…

I did something similar with XXPaper for 18xx games (and have been considering redoing it with Pango and Cairo instead of raw postscript generation). Another interesting option in a similar area is Squib.

Ahh, thanks. Whilst I'm slightly disappointed to hear it's been done before (hasn't it always!) good to hear some other options

My past attempts have revolved around using Python, SVG and (occasionally) Cairo. Someday I will create a more polished version to publish... but 1.5 jobs and family commitments have not left much free time for "frivolous" activities like open source gaming projects. soblue

I initially looked at SVG, and still may for the graphic assets.

Open Source, frivolous! Pfft.

Not 'Latex' - LaTeX!

(my name appears in Lamport's LaTeX book. So there.)
