Apprenticeship: Heads-up poker

Mentor: ~timluc-miptev Reward: 1 Stars Apply for this grant

A fun client app that would be a good way to get acquainted with Urbit's networking and p2p abilities. While it would be possible to create a fully decentralized version that uses mental poker algorithms to make the game fully p2p, it is probably more tractable initially to implement the game with a centralized server.

The game can be implemented such that the central server only handles queries about current deck state, and so could be swapped out for a solution with no trusted third party at a later time. Everything else can be handled player-side, including signing attestations of game state at different points.
