Two player game development

Hi all,
I am starting to work on the design (currently very basic form) of a two player Java based game. I have learned Core Java and Swing and I suppose that I may as well also try to use AWT only after reading through about AWT.

Frankly, I have not really worked on anything like this before and thus I need a few pointers about things to be considered in system design part, and other technicalities involved. Once I am sure of my design, I will start the implementation.

The most basic form of a game could be a tic tac toe, but I am looking for something different, if not too complicated.

I have also started reading through Killer Game Programming in Java.

The best way I think is to develop a rpg game, by which you can master many konwledge.

If I were you I would first start reading the following set of tutorials: Coke and Code Tutorials

And then afterwards, try building your game using a pre-built library such as JMonkey Engine

Good luck and happy programming.
I agree. Here's the link:
