So… As I was discussing with Don (@AYBABTM) his crazy Revit API Pin Ball Machine (stay tuned) it occurred to me that with worksharing I could make a checkers game in Revit! Don said “I can make it 2 players with worksharing” so that got me thinking… Anyways, channeling David Light and half a flight to Miami later and I have a working checkers game in Revit.

Here is how it works
1. Enable Worksets
2. Make a local for each player
3. Player 1 makes a move
4. Sync with central
5. Player 2 makes move
6. Sync with central
7. Repeat 3-6 till you have a winner!

- Added a "King Me" instance parameter to the game piece
- Fixed the view names
- Added rotated plan views since you can move the pieces in the camera views :(
It has 2 views in it like the image above. 1 for player 1 and 1 for player 2. I think you’ll need some sort of chat client to play across an office but it should keep you entertained while you sync a 400 mb model . Over the break I’ll try and make a starter kit for a chess set. (I’m counting on David Light to make a Starwars set of Pieces).
Anyways, Happy Holidays and thanks so much for supporting CASE and DesignReform. Stay tuned for lots to come in 2012!
