Race For The Galaxy board game scorer for Android with recognition ability.
This is a little homebrew application for Android based phones which goal is to help Race For The Galaxy game players to calculate their total victory points fast. The main idea is to make your phone to recognize cards you have played and show you the total score and other statistics.
All three expansion packs are supported. Prestige counter can be enabled using application menu.
To run this application OpenCV Manager must be installed.
Take your phone horizontally so that red reset button is on the left and blue chips-increment button is on the right. Point it to the cards placed on the table. Try not to be too close, normally it should be able to recognize 8 card laying in 2 rows from the single frame. Newly recognized cards are outlined with green, others are outlined with red.
Card can be recognized only when it is in more or less upward position. Rotated card will not be recognized.
Add chips by pressing the chips button.
Press red reset button to clear recognized cards list and to reset chips counter.
This project is open-source and non-profitable, however it contains art which belongs to Rio Grande Games and Race For The Galaxy designer Tom Lehmann.
