Blogging in Lisp

Spokes is a board game invented by my son, Chris St. Clair. I've been working on an Elm implementation of it for almost a month. It works, and there are only a few issues left before it's feature complete.

The rendering is based on Elm's SVG package, much like Kakuro Dojo. But it has a server, written almost entirely in Elm, and running on my Xossbow droplet, in Node.js. I've always considered Node.js to have a brittle architecture, but my jsMaze Amazon AWS machine just runs and runs, with nary a problem.

Check out Spokes. Click on the "Help" and "Rules" links near the bottom of the page to learn how to play, try it out in "local" mode, or with a friend or three, and let me know what you think.
