Working Title : Crap the Sack

So I have a game design idea. It is a basic dice game, a game we discovered on vacation one year in Jamaica. A bunch of very wealthy guys were sitting around a table gambling with each other on it and we quickly became friends because they, and we, all owned Omega watches. Anyway, we took the basic premise of that game and switched it around and it evolved over the past 8 years. It is a blast, and we all sit around laughing our heads off playing it for hours. We play it in bars, around campfires, anywhere, any time. The game defines us. It is officially called “Sh*t the Bed” but I figured I should tone down the title a bit since it would essentially be a family title.

Graphics needed are minimal, although there is a scoring and math system involved. I used to be quite the programmer – I was on my high school programming team and we went to the Nationals with Turing. (I know, reeks of nerd!). I have been out of the game for a long time, and ask you, who read this, what is a good, simple language to pick up for a simple project such as this? Flash? XBL? I shudder at the thought of C++ for such a simple premise, but figured I would put it out to the experts.

Something I always wanted to put into game form and could be a fun entry back into entry level programming.
