A New Project - random Player Mats

Over in this thread, where there was some discussion on whether the game of Scythe could be solved, GFLima suggested that it would be nice if there existed a version of Scythe with random Player Mats. This would be analogous to how there exists the game chess960, which is basically chess with a somewhat random set up.

So I've embarked on a pet project to randomly generate Scythe Player Mats while learning some new software development skills in the process. This will be my first time exploring the Google App Engine platform for deploying Web Apps, which caught my interest some time ago.

Here's a sample generated Player Mat:

I originally wanted to add more images and Mat names, as well as some options to create non-Random Mats in case people wanted to see a particular configuration, or just work with their own pictures. Maybe that'll come in the future - this has been a lot more work intensive than I originally expected it to be.


It's a bit slow. I can't guarantee it'll have 100% up-time. I may break it at some point while experimenting with the Google framework. But consider it "Beta" or whatever and have a look if you're interested.
