here's how you play. player 1 is blue. player 2 is red. you are a bug. you are trying to eat/kill/defeat all the other guy's bugs. you do this by landing on their squares. when you do so, the bug turns into a fungus. your fungus, in fact. you can only move to a square that is either adjacent to one of your bugs, or to a square that is adjacent to a fungus that is either adjacent to one of your bugs, or adjacent to a fungus that is adjacent to a bug. (do we get a sense of what sort of *coff**recursive**koff* routine might have been used to code this?) you get 5 bugs to place before it switches over to the other fellow. a bug is represented by an X, a fungus by a square.
i will get it to be able to recognize when the game is over. right now, you've got to figure it out by yourself. i will also maybe get it to represent dead fungi in a different color or something. and maybe get something better than x's and squares. and then get really ambitious and set up a computer player. and then get about equivalently ambitious and go for network play. right, calvin? *fingers flash a 'V', accompanied by the wink and the giggle we all know so well*
