I am interested in making Java versions of board games and I am after some advice about where to start. I have a good basic knowledge of Java but not much experience with GUIs and Images. However since the things I would (eventually) like to program will not require 3D graphics, animation or anything like that I'm hoping it won't be too bad. Anyway, what I am after really is some good references on that sort of game programming if there are any.

Thanks for your help.

For programming graphics in Java, buy a book like Killer Game Programming in Java or Developing Games in Java.  You may also want to buy a book about Swing (a.k.a. The Definitive Guide to Java Swing) and a book about networking (a.k.a. Java Networking).

For board game ai, you will want to look up alpha beta search on the internet.
