[Haskell-cafe] Haskell board game

I'm interested in doing a simple board game on haskell. For that I want
to be able to draw stuff like the possible player movements and I want
to be able to display very simple animations. I want to know what
graphical interface library you suggest to me.

I have almost no prior experience with graphical interfaces of any kind,
so I rather start with something easy and straightforward. I have no
need for great performance or anything like that. I'd like if it runs on
windows with much trouble, that is, it'll be easy to package it for
windows without requiring the user to install anything besides my game.

My first thought was to use GTK's gtkTable, but I'm unsure how easy it
is to make it work on windows. Beside that, I'm not sure it would be the
 easiest API for me to use.
