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 dice that form the basis of the game. Try modifying the dice with some of the suggestions in this video on your own.
- [Instructor] With the existing app,…we are doing something pretty common in games.…We are rolling six-sided dice.…But we don't have to stick to that.…What if we change the dice…and swap them out with something else?…What if we swap them with an eight-sided die?…Or dice with 10 sides?…Or 12 or even 20?…We could also completely replace dice entirely…and use a deck of playing cards.…With each of these changes there are…some additional questions to think about to help you try…and solve these substitutions.…First, if you swap out the original dice…with dice with more sides, how will that affect…the players' chances to win?…Will they get frustrated with the game?…Should you relax the rules a bit?…Or should you change the number of dice you roll at once?…Maybe rolling only two instead of three.…
In the last option if you replace dice with a deck of cards,…how would you keep track of the depleted set?…When you pick a card from a deck and put it aside,…you can't pick that card up again.…So can you use an array list to keep track…
