Hi All,
I'm Looking for someone who can Convert a Board Game
into a computer game.If 74 and do Not have time to learn
Machine Language,I have done a Little in my early Days.
The Game is Simple,in that it does Not have any cards.
All the info is on the Board.
Looking for someone that would take a Percentage of
the Profits,or some other arrangement.
Sincerely
Gerald Greig

First order approximation to reality is that there are no
profits. Your best bet is to promote your game in its present
form, and hope that someone with the knowhow thinks it's great
enough to warrant converting.

Well, as a senior developer with years of experience (and a hobbist's interest in AI and state representation), let me say that it isn't as easy as it seems to do this.

Learning a computer language today, though, is cake. You should give it a shot. Take course in Microsoft .NET at your local learning annex or technical school - you can probably do it at your own pace completely over the Internet. If your game doesn't require a lot of complexity, you can probably do the work yourself... although computer opponents are a pretty advanced subject. These days, no one does anything using machine languages or complex graphical programming. They've built tools to handle all that hard work.

The real question is, what do you expect to get out of having the game on the computer?
