Im trying to build a board game called "River crossing" in Java. My idea:

Have one board class where there create the main board of the game.
Contains pocket elements

Separate classes per game's levels.

There is a way to modify the board from board class depends of in what level you are?

*Any better ideas for structure, are welcomed

By convention, Java class names begin with an uppercase letter.

Unless you are overriding default behavior (not likely), extending JFrame and JButton is a misuse of inheritance. And event listeners are usually more conveniently programmed as anonymous inner classes instead of being implemented in a class.

luck, db
There are no new questions, but there may be new answers.
