I think it would be nice to play against IA or another players, so... why not?

The thing is that I'm not sure about the legal requirements I need to acomplish. I guess that for a personal use there would not be any problem, but what if I wanna share?

It is not among my goals to profit myself, it's just for fun and learning. Actually, I had though in make it as an open source application (for Linux).

So, what do you know about those legal questions?

Nah... the boardgame is totally unrelated to this PC game, except for the name.

Well...

1) you can contact the company and see if you have permission (probably not ,but worth a shot)

2) You can make a simplified version of it, much like some of the puerto rico versions online.

3) I know one puerto rico version made his own game name, changed all of the elements, but the game play was the same.

Well, FWIW, some people would like to see a PC version of the board game.



BTW, @Alfre204, was there ever any follow up on this?
