Adapting Stones for PGMJ?
How much work would it take to adapt Stones for PGMJ? For the record, I'm not referring to the game also known as Ishido, which is already fully implemented and adapted with variations in PGMJ, but the MSEP game, which is apparently adapted from Ishido itself.
The thing that makes Stones unique is that its tiles have three attributes compared to Ishido's two, and there are wildcard stones. This might necessitate the use of mahjong tiles instead of abstract tiles, as they can have the attributes of symbol and suit, and the third attribute would be color. The wildcard tiles would be Dragon tiles as with Pyramid of Wild Dragons.
I suppose, given the above, it might be better to base the adaptation on Pyramid of Wild Dragons directly, but with fewer tiles - Stones has 84 tiles in all - though it would be quite a different adaptation. That ought to sidestep legal issues, but then any adaptation would since it wouldn't be exactly the same.
Any further thoughts on this, especially from Gregg?
