I have cloned the classic Snake game in my spare time recently to learn about dynamic memory allocation and pointer stuff in C++.

Last week we (the trainees) then had a C/C++ training and one topic was network communication with sockets.

I plan to combine my own [code] with the new knowledge and want to implement a multiplayer mode in my "worm" [project].

As I made the game object oriented in most parts it shouldn't be too hard to do so and I guess it won't take the whole week.

If there's time left or if others join me, there are other generic game functionalities that could be played around with, like - (online) highscore, - graphical output with OpenGL, - game controller support - and so on ...
