Hello!

I'm a junior developer and I really want to make a home project. Basically, I'm looking for free (print and play) game to develop an app for it.
The game I'm looking for should be
- free
- able to redesign graphically
- able to improve with an app

I don't want to make an app from a game, but make an app for a game. The app can contain anything, like game mechanism(s) or story elements, etc. Maybe a good example is "Mansions of Madness".

Looking forward to your suggestions! meeple

I would talk to Mark Tuck or John Keane -- both are pretty active in the print-n-play design contests here on BGG, and both are standup chaps that would likely work something out with you

Hi there,

if you would like to go for something generic, but useful to many, you might want to code a dice app like
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.teazel
But with the possibility to design your own faces simply by adding icons (like those from http://game-icons.net/ ) to the dices' faces ..



Kind regards,
Kai

This is an outstanding idea.

+1000. It would also be REALLY useful if you could choose the number and type of the dice and a colour for each. That would be phenomenal!

Part of the joy of rolling dice is: watching them roll.
The app you mentioned does not roll dice - you just see results .. as opposed to the app I mentioned ..

Gotcha, (and agreed). I prefer seeing them roll too.

I totally agree, however, the ability to whip together custom dice in an app for prototyping is invaluable.
