    What's the object of that game? I clicked around making new dots but I had to be missing the point.

    I had the high score for almost a day, but I don't think I'm even in the top ten now.

    Can't get "60 or 70" the maximum one can get is the number of hexagons (I set the maximum score, see if you can match it). Its a mathmatical strategic game, very much like chess. in fact is very much like Jim Horne's Life genesis (a mathmatician). Goal: try and get as much of the board to turn your color as possible or remove all your enemies by converting them. Simply move one space to regnerate a new block, splitting in two. Or jump two spaces leaving the previous space open. Any enemies you land by, you convert.

    Tips that I used:
    * Try and get to the enemies occupied corners before they move to remove one or two of the starting bases (so the remaining enemy is surrounded).
    * Try and think in terms of numbers. If you can take out three enemies by jumping, or two enemies by splitting then do it. If you can nail 5 or 6 then go for it. Sacrifice for the sake of numbers. Jump in and take 5 or 6 even if the enemy will jump in and alter 2 or3 back.
    * Finally, outthink the computers A.I. The computer is always going for the most numbers to convert. Set traps, sacrifice two spaces so the enemy comes in and is surrounded. Try to think plays ahead of the computer (like chess).
    * Try various combinations of strategy. It might take a while, but you can beat the computer.

    Yes, it is very addicting.
    P.S. wheres my trophy (Just Kidding)!
