Welcome to Play Games with R using the NWS Server Technology!

The R package 'gamesNWS' provides an infrastructure to play different card games (e.g. uno, poker) in a computer network. You can play the games with your friends in the whole world or against several computer players at your local machine. For the communication a NetWorkSpace Server and the R package NWS is used.
