I built an online board game

During the pandemic, my board game group moved online. That meant we couldn’t play Arboretum, one of my favorite board games. As a learning project, I’ve now built a multiplayer online version of the game.

I’ve been playing the game with my friends, but I’m not hosting it anywhere since I don’t own any of the rights to the game. See the full code here and some screenshots below.

Arboretum is a card-playing game where you place cards to build the most beautiful arboretum. Since only one player can score for each tree type, a key part is figuring out the strategy of the other players and adjusting accordingly.
