Description of The Game of Life

When I was in high school (not THAT long ago ), the game of life was making a big splash in mathematics and biology... although it seems to us at the time that the best use of the theory would be-- you guessed it-- in games. In the game of life, each cell must be split according to a specific formula. In this game, you must split the cells in the right order so that the end pattern matches a given prototype.

Quite fun and educational, with energy and control issues thrown in for complexity. Two thumbs up!

Wow, apparently uneducated people surfing abondonware websites come here and use the review space of a 1992 video game to call someone like Richard Dawkins an idiot... If I had to guess, the moderators probably don't want crap like that on here, so how about if you drag your idiotic ideals onto a site dedicated to debating creationism, the existence of a Higher Power / Supreme Being / Prime Mover / Flying Spaghetti Monster. Seriously, neither the time nor the place, dummy... and people wonder why I've lost my "faith" in humanity...

Idiots like Richard Dawkins still think stuff like this can ACTUALLY explain "The Meaning of Life". (Or rather "NON Meaning of Life" in Dawkins idiom!)

More college math classes - especially those teaching game theory - used this as a teaching tool than biology classes. Still, a fun waste of time, but what good game isn't? :)
