I created this app when I was first learning C#. Ogle derives from a popular tabletop game you've probably played, but it increases the pace considerably. This version uses Windows Forms, but I'm planning to make a fancier version with WPF when I get some time.

Installation

Ogle requires .NET Framework 4.5 and Windows 10, 8, 7, or Vista. The Ogle installer will help you install .NET 4.5 if you do not have it:
