In a sort-of follow-up to the previous post about the future of gaming, and gaming with technology, I started thinking about how Google Wave could be used for gaming in general.
What is Google Wave? I like to think of Google Wave as a collaboration platform that allows multiple people to "grow" a document, as well as add comments, and many other things. Someone put it like "If email were invented today, it would look like Google Wave."
Since it is a flexible platform, I was curious if it would be possible to use it as a virtual board gaming platform. I am still investigating that matter, and I think, so far, "maybe".
As a first step onto this road, I created a quick dice-rolling gadget for Google Wave:
If you want to use the gadget, add it by clicking on the "Add Gadget by URL" button with the following URL:
Note that this is a specific version of the gadget. The newest can always be found on my GitHub account, but if you switch to a new version, it might not work with your saved state. Hence, using the correct version of the gadget is important.
Let me know what you think in the comments.
