I'm a newbie to games, although I have quite a bit of experience with Java and C/C++. I fthere is a better place for this question, I apologize fo rnot posting there.
I am interested in writing a multi-user puzzle-style game using something like a 10x10 grid. From 2 to 4 players can play a game. Each player sees their own separate grid. Each player in turn occupies a cell in the grid. Once occupied, cells are unavailable for the rest of the game.
The specific rules are unimportant, but I wanted to know if jME is something I can use to create a multi-player game like this.
Any advice, ideas, suggestions are gratefully welcome. Thanks.
Is there a specific question in there? :o
You might take a look at JGN (http://javagn.org) for the networking. I would usually reference SGS to be fair, but it would be WAY overkill for what you are trying to accomplish.
Apologize for not explicitly phrasing a question. Basically I wanted to know if jME would be th eproper tool to use fo this type of game or not. I will look at the website suggested. Thanks.

Of course it it :) - at least for the graphics part. You need something else for the model/logic and networking parts (e.g. JGN)...
