    Magic Night - Javascript Code Challenge

    Notch8 Workspace

    Magic Night is a hands on, team oriented, Javascript coding lab, welcoming of all experience levels and backgrounds. We get together because coding is fun; fun to solve hard problems, and fun to work together. We organize into small teams to code up creative solutions to a common challenge, then after 3 hours of building, present to the group.

    This months PDX magic might will be to create and implement a sliding puzzle. https://github.com/PortlandMagicNight/2017-2-1-sliding-puzzle

    Today's magic night challenge is to build an animal quiz program.

    It works like this. The program starts by telling the user to think of an animal. It then begins asking a series of yes/no questions about that animal: does it swim, does it have hair, etc. Eventually, it will narrow down the possibilities to a single animal and guess that (Is it a mouse?).

    This month, we're going to look at the popular game called Sokoban. We'll implement an engine to generate the board, and allow users to play.

    The computer game Sokoban, invented by Hiroyuki Imabayashi, was introduced by Thinking Rabbit of Takarazuka, Japan in 1982. This simple game of logic puzzles was an instant success. It won awards and spawned sequels. Over the years, Sokoban has been ported to a huge number of platforms. Fan support remains strong and many of those fans even produce new levels for the game.
