    That dice game sounds awesome! I may be a bit late tonight, but trying to get back in the swing on things at the meet up.

    Something came up. Like all life refactors I need to handle some scheduling debt.

      I just finished patching a Hubot script for this game. So the mechanics has some real world examples. We can bring some physical dice to demonstrate. The logic is simple enough to code in a few hours and/or have beginners figure out the data model and they can leave with a working (solitaire) game.

    We'll probably do another team based coding challenge, any ideas?

      Not sure how far teams got at the last hack night, but maybe we can try to make everyone's mystery-specs pass.

      We can collect them all in a repo, I started one here https://github.com/Zac...­

    Tentatively changed to July 3rd, if that's still a problem for everyone we can bump it 1 week.

    • Oren K

      I personally won't be able to make the 3rd, but I'm also moving to a new apt on the 10th so either way I'm probably going to miss it :-(
