XOBoGa XO Board Games Design version .01
Designing an engine for Board Games authoring system for the XO. This should be a robust but simple system that will allow users to create their own board games on the laptop. The system will be written in Python w/Pygame elements. These Board Games can have mini games like Asterix(r) board games  series, or even Mario Party(r) against work only with cards and rules.
There's already a 'board game engine' called childsplay http://childsplay.sf.net which is Python/Pygame based and uses a plugin system for the games. A new project is started called schoolsplay, http://schoolsplay.sf.net , which will replace childsplay and also tries to be as OLPC compatible as possible.
