Hi there,

Basically I'd just like some advice as to how about going about building the game. I've made a Bluetooth mesaging app, which simplying allows two phones to connect and send/receive text. Now I'd like to make the game.
1.I'm kind of confused as to how my app will distinguish between phone 1/2, how will I disable player 1's game, until player 2 has taken their turn, would it be just a case of setting a boolean to false?
2. I've used a simple view just to do a simple grid for a background, do you think this would be ideal for my project? I've been suggested to use SurfaceView and Open GLES (I think it was).
3. Do you have any resources that would help me when making this game? I'm feeling over-whelmed and don't really know where to start.

Any help would be greatly appreciated(even if it's just a simple answer to any of the questions)! Thanks for your time! (I don't think I'm break any rules by asking for help here ,sorry if I am).
