In this video, Doug Winnie reviews some ideas on how to extend and expand your app. Some of the changes you can make involve changing the rules of the game. Try modifying the game with some of the suggestions in this video on your own.
- With the existing app, there are a number of things…you can do to change how the game is played.…Let's review the current rules first.…In the game, there are three dice.…When you roll, all the dice are rolled at the same time.…Triples score points, doubles score points as well.…Now, based on these rules, let's ask some…what if questions to see how we could change the app.…What if you rolled more than three dice?…What if you rolled one die at a time?…What if you had the player predict a roll?…With each of these questions, there are some…additional questions to think about to help you…try and solve these what if scenarios.…
First, if you rolled more than three dice,…could you do that by adding…additional dice to the array list?…Would that be enough?…How would additional dice change how you tested…if there are matching combinations?…If you rolled one die at a time,…how would you keep track of the die…you were rolling at one time?…If you had to guess a roll,…how could you let the player indicate…what their guess is before they initiate the roll?…
