Need a simple dice game called zonk created. need the class files for eclipse to compile and run. GUI driven, decent layout, several buttons to roll or stop with a field showing current roll score and another area showing players scores total throughout the game. can be from 2+ people depending on how many are selected at beginning of game. i'd say 2-5max. Most of the work is completed, i'm just having trouble getting it all together, would like to have completed by tomorrow 8pm est. below is a basic idea of game and absic rules.
The basic premise of the game is to roll dice and accumulate more points than other players. There are different ways to accumulate points on a given turn and any roll that does not accumulate points is called a "Zonk," lending the name to the game.
Play begins with each player taking a turn to roll 5 dice - and each turn consists of at least 3 rolls of the dice (unless a "zonk" occurs).
Scoring: A single "1" counts as 100 and a single "5" counts as 50. All other single dice (2, 3, 4 & 6) have no individual value. Three of a kind equal the dice number times 100 (three 2's = 200, three 4's = 400), however, three "1's" equal 1,000 points. Once a die is counted toward points, it is set aside and not included with the next roll. An exception is made for 5's which can be rerolled in hopes of earning more than 50 points. Again, if a roll results in no points (singles or doubles of 2,3,4,6), it is a "Zonk" and ends the players turn immediately.
If a player makes it through 3 rolls with each roll generating points, all dice are then re-rolled and points continue to accumulate until the player either ends the roll of their own choice or rolls a "zonk."
Begin Play: The game begins as players roll until they achieve at least 500 points to "get on the board" - you cannot accumulate points until you reach this threshold. Subsequently, they may choose to end each following roll upon earning points or until they "zonk."
Roll #1: 1-2-3-4-5 = 150 points
Roll #2: (reroll 2,3,4) 1-1-6-6 = 200 points, 350 total
Roll #3: (reroll 6,6) 4-6 = ZONK
Roll #1: 1-1-2-4-5 = 50 points
Roll #2: (re roll 1,1,2,4) 2-5-5-5 = 500 points, 550 total
Roll #3: Player forfeits third roll to keep the 550 points and "get on the board"
Variations on start/end abound (Often depending upon the length of time available to play the game.) The most common start point would be 500 points and end point would be 10,000
Example 2 shows how you can reroll 5's
