Open Source Multiplayer Card Game Server

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am currently looking for an open source multi player card card (For example, poker game/ bingo...) server, which enable us to concentrate in implementing the card game logic itself, instead of the need of taking care networking/ load balancing/ creating new game rooms... For client side, we prefer to run in browser using javascript, for widely deployment purpose. I google for server resource, but unable to find a suitable resource : http://chesslib.sourceforge.net/ibgs.html - Two player board game server. Is it suitable for game more than 2 players? http://www.worldforge.org/ - open source multi player game server. But it seem overkill for this small scale project. I was wondering whether anyone know any resource on this? Thanks!

Off the top of my head, no. But you should also check Google Code, Oholo and other open-source software hosting services. There are hundreds of projects out there and you're likely to find somewhere to start.

One thing to note is not so much to search for a 'card game server' because that's going to get you nowhere. It's too specific. Instead, try a search for a javascript chat lobby. You're bound to find a lot more that way.

More than likely you're going to need to develop most of your own code in terms of the games themselves. You may even need to write your own lobby type deal from scratch on your own.

You did yourself a favor, though, by using a web-based javascript interface (although php could be good too). That should make things relatively easy.

Good luck!
