    Default Re: Best way to approach this problem

    Start by identifying the requirements/specifications of your program. How do you want the users to interact with the program? What are the rules of Domino? etc.

    After you have your requirements/specifications, start blocking out roughly what classes you think you'll need. Add basic fields and method signatures to help give you an idea of what each class does.

    After you have you classes defined, go back and implement the methods. Make sure to test often to verify that the changes you're making work and don't break existing the code.
