i'd love to see someone come up with a game that can be programmed in a day.
Especially one which made use of external data files that could be written by users. A good example of this would be a trivia game, or hangman, where the core game engine is simple, and other users can make data files containing trivia questions or hangman words+phrases.

I'd love to have some suggestions for some new creative ideas for a fun game that had a very simple engine but could be greatly expanded by user-written data files.

expanding on that idea, someone could make a website version of hangman, and then users could upload text files with their own personal words/phrases, and then the site would add it to the database,and then when a user goes to the site, they would get a word that a user came up with.

I'm so glad breakbeat techno isn't an illegal drug

You might as well just call it Dirty Word Hangman, as I am sure that is what it would become 1.47836483 seconds after you posted it to the website.  tongue

My brother and I made a hangman game 8 about years ago in Borland Delphi 2 and it became my job to make the dictionary. I got out the dictionary and started in the As. After a bit, my brother decided to download a wordlist and use that. But it was all in a text file that could be edited by users. Shortly after that he made a web hangman game, but the word list was not editable. He also did a kind of battleship clone. The cool thing was that it was hosted on our home linux box (that served as a kind of network router for our internet connection) so anyone in my family could play and nobody else.

which is why you have it set up to not use words that  are dirty.

I have some ideas:... not sure if they will count as snacks though;

Virtual pet: No description necessary.
Hangman: obviously
Tic-tac-toe: Would be very easy to code, we might need to include more games in that one  Grin
 my brains empty. If you looking for my good idea that is not a game: look at my post "IDEA: Mood diary/graph
