I did a game thing a while ago that might be useful

dont know how happy with it I am 2y on or whatever :)

A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.
How about a nice game of chess?

yes we have seen that.... and last year we tried to do a clojure program that could play Go.
but none of us knows anything about Go... so it was quite a steep learning curve
:(

You could build a go game in go, with a build pipeline on a go server...

done with our hour of Clojure. First steps towards using cljx. Game logic in cljx and is usable from clj.
and got a skeleton cljs going as well. (ie. println). Looking at Domina now to handle stuff.

It's a home game for us so we have the advantage
uswitch are used to a different style of table
