    Default February 2012 Entry - Game of Life

    Here's mine so far (probably won't finish it) - thinking of text to go in the squares is taking ages. Haven't even got around to the map part yet! If I have time I'm hoping to bring it into a 3d program to make the little white houses, ramps and spinner from the original game.

    Great concept Ravs, and I really like what you have in the squares so far. I have a feeling that if this was a game on the market I would have bought it by now. I really hope you finish it.

    Hehe, ravells, I was thinking about doing this game as well only with a different idea behind it. I don't know if I will get around to it and probably I won't have time so at least someone here is going to do this game. I always loved the 3d aspects of the board when i was a kid.

    It's funny, I was also thinking of this game. Thought it would be fun to do the buildings in Hexagon 2, or sketch-up. It's only the 8th, so hopefully you'll finish. It looks really cool.

    Cheers, like Jax I really loved the 3d bits of the game when I was a kid too. It was like a little world - it didn't take much to please us in the '70s!

    Bit more. Having fun doing the text but I'd really like to get onto the 'mappy' part of it.

    Pop on your 3-D glasses and watch a movie?... it seems it takes even less to please us now. Sigh. Good looking entry so far. (ahhh... 70's)

    *Chuckles* Skyrim basically stole my November of last year. I look back at what I "accomplished" that month and sigh. But hey what can I say I thoroughly enjoyed the game. So on some level I can completely relate.
