I don''t have much programming experience, and I was wondering how difficult it would be too make a board game able to be played over the internet. Would i have to code everything myself, or are there programs i could download which would have it all preprogrammed and i just give it bitmaps of pieces and boards?

I don''t know of any ''net board game'' kits, so to speak. So you''d be looking at making it yourself.

I''d recommend a client-server architecture. You have two programs, or parts of programs, running (on the same machine if you want, but they don''t have to be). One part - the ''server'' part - is responsible for the game data. Positions of playing pieces, player info, rules, etc. The other part - the ''client'' - is responsible for drawing the board for each player, and letting them click buttons and press keys to actually play the game.
