Monopoly Board

 2:52 am on Aug 7, 2012 (gmt 0)

Hi guys!

I've not been back to this site in a very long time! Hope to be posting more often again now!

Anyway I come in seek of advice! I'm trying to create a monopoly board for a website. Not interactive as a game but just each property has a light box effect which tells the user about that property when clicked. This i can do but the problem I'm facing is how to create the board layout? After some discussion with others they have told me using a table layout is the best bet but can't say I've ever used that for a layout plus I'd like a small advertising space in the middle of the board. I'd also like the board to rotate round using java if poss when clicking an arrow on the bottom corners of each side of the screen?

Is it possible to do this with CSS and still make the names of the properties editable in dreamweaver wysiwyg rather than using an image for the property place on the board?

Hope you can help! Thanks!

HTML 5 [w3.org]. Check out all the cool things you can do with HTML 5 [hongkiat.com]. Learn more about fun HTML 5 goodness [developer.yahoo.com] at the Yahoo Developer Network [developer.yahoo.com]. The cool thing about HTML 5 is that it can run as an APP in any Apple, Microsoft or Android mobile device, which will allow the game to reach the 50% or more that are accessing Internet content in that manner.

Good luck!

Thanks for that! I've been up all night working with the html5 stuff! Had enough and got rid haha! Is there not an easier way? The rectangle and canvas tags are all very new to me!

They might be new to you, but from what I sense, it is all rather straight-forward; consider reading into it until you understand the basics and then hire somebody to do it for you. I just completed a project with one similar "graphic challenge" that an agency solved very elegantly - certainly better than I could have done.

Oh, and I would stay away from the dreamweaver ideas purely for the sake of SEO and accessibility. There are better ways nowadays, even though visually it might end up looking the same.
