Visual Basic 2005 is easy to learn. The hard part for you is going to be learning how to program the graphics needed to write a game. Fortunately for you, the book has a chapter on graphics (Chapter 14) that will give you a primer and the Microsoft Web site provides a starter kit that contains a card game so you can get a feel for what you are up against. You can download the starter kit at http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/vstudio/Aa718342.aspx. Once you determine this is what you want to do, you might want to search for a book that is specific to graphics programming in .NET. Search the Wiley site at http://www.wiley.com/WileyCDA/Section/id-300351.html to find a book that meets your needs.
