description: I'll try to make a 2-player Yahtzee game(you know, with the dice and everything), both players will have the same rolls(wherever possible), so it'll be based mostly on skill and a bit on luck. I'm just in concept phase for now, and i'll still need to learn a lot (GUI layout, internet connection, ...) so it might take me a while, but that's the same for everyone i think.
You could probably pull that off. The thing about simple games is that people aren't all that willing to play it, so you can't expect a huge success from a Yathzee remake.
What fuels my gamemaking is the continued feedback from people, the knowledge that there are people out there playing the game. That's why I've never made a simple game, I've always aimed for a very good one.
So if you're not looking for a huge audience for your game, and you're only doing it to learn programming, it's a good plan. On the other hand, if you are looking for quick success and entry into the gamemaking hallf of fame, aim higher.
