Made a Yahtzee Clone, today.
To keep things as legal as possible, the scoring is marginally different, so be sure to read through the rules to get to grips with the exact sets of dice that you can get points for.
You can play Shoebox of Games here. "Dice Rolls" can be found in the new "Misc" section, where I've shifted Leapfrog to, so be aware of that.
In my head, Misc = "Can be played in reality" whereas Extra = "Probably a little bit too videogamey to count as a proper ShoeBox game...

A few quick tweaks and a change to the "Game Over" parameters, which also required the drawing of a generic trophy icon!!
Accordion is now part of the ShoeBox, overwriting what used to be "Trails".
The game now brings up a little Trophy on the bottom left, if you've got less than 5 piles remaining (+ whatever's left in the draw deck).
The Accordion rules state that any leaps should be "over 2", not "over 1" like I had it with Trails, so in order to make things a little less frustra...

Awesome!! Thanks Alan!!
Note : I so very very very nearly deleted your comment because, without any additional text, it just looked so much like a standard spam-bot link! Sincere apologies if 100,000 other people have already sent me such replies, and I've been clicking the delete button on them all!!!

Score the roll of a dice, based on various rules.
With three rolls per turn, and the ability to hold the dice, try to get a set of dice that will earn you the most points.

@RSKGames

The pixel art and the normal font in the menu screens seemed at odds with each other. All other screens I like the fonts that are used.

@RSKGames

The fonts also might need to be changed to a pixel art font to make it look good.
Early font-test prototype
I coded this a few weeks ago, to see if web-fonts did actually work properly on as many browsers as I could find, and ... for the most part, they seemed to work just fine, meaning I can technically create my own pixel-style font, upload it to the server and have it work without too many issues.

I've switched the icons on the ShoeBox menu from being "crappy scrawls" to being pixelart..
I personally think they look a little better, but what do you think?

Today's new addition to the ShoeBox is a simple anagram game.
Try to score as many points as you can from the rack of tiles that you have.
If you can't find a word, you can use the Swap button, but each one will use up one of your moves. (You have a limit of 3 swaps when playing timed mode)
As with Strings mode, you'll need to try to beat your previous highscore to count the game as a "Win"

There are an awful lot of elements that it would be great to add to the Shoebox framework, but first a few additional framework chunks need to be integrated.

During the course of making Shoebox of Games, I'm sure there'll be plenty of feedback.
If you want to get a mention, you can send feedback either in the comments, via Twitter, via email, or any other method you can think of that includes me receiving the feedback!

The classic "hop over to remove" solitaire game is now part of the Shoebox.

It's a simple enough game. Leap either horizontally or vertically over another counter, to remove it from the board.
Your task is to remove all but one counter from the board.

Leap the tiles over each other, capturing the leaped tile each time.
Try to find a series of leaps that will result in only one tile remaining.

As the board game engine slowly builds (really bloomin' slowly, this has been one heck of a challenge!!) I can now move "pieces" in and around the board.
It currently isn't a lot, and there's little or no rules, but it is at least functional.
Now to figure out why the whole thing scrolls so slowly at certain points.. Hmmm...

I'm now fairly happy with the way the generic board is scrolling and zooming on my iPhings, but the desktop version needs a lot more work.

I've started work on a universal board-drawing function that should hopefully allow me to add a number of different board games into Shoebox.

You know that thing where you click on clusters of coloured objects, to earn points, and try to remove all the objects...?
That's now in the ShoeBox. (Under Extras)

It's a simple enough game, but it's made me realise there's certain things lacking from the ShoeBox Framework, like Score Popups, and lovely particles and things.

Click away clusters of one or more same icons, in order to clear the entire board.

First up, I've decided to just let "Trails" be "Trails", and stop worrying about what the actual game might possibly have really been.
