I'm new at this and I was wondering if someone could suggest the most appropriate API to use to make a card game that is:
- capable of laying out cards (png files)
- beginner-friendly (well documented)
If it helps to give a better answer, the game is based on Set: http://www.setgame.com/set/puzzle_frame.htm
This will be a standalone client application using C#, or any other suitable language for cross-platform GUI-based applications (e.g., Ruby, Java & Swing, Python).
There are a number of toolkits listed at:
