I've played at BGA for a while. When they added Hanabi, one of the things I learned is that they have a developer program where volunteer developers can write/port new games. They've got a long list of game licenses they've already negotiated.

http://studio.boardgamearena.com

I'm starting with a simple card game, and hope to try a more complex board game next. Their forum is not very active. If anyone here decides to try developing something, I'd love to share ideas or help.

I'd test the studio, and isn't easy really xD.

You must know lot of "programming language" for edit on BGA. (PHP, SQL, HTML, CSS and Javascript -they use dojo script-).

You'll learn a lot about the ugly underpinnings of modern web sites. HTML, CSS, Javascript, PHP and SQL are all used in every game. It's definitely not for the beginners or dilettantes; It's a lot of work to produce a complete game.

I also have an informal developer program for Boardspace.net. The
games are written using only Java, but it's otherwise a similarly
difficult and time consuming task to produce a complete game.

Yes, isn't for newbies. But BGA is the very intuitive and most active web of boards on-line.
