April and May were very cold and very wet and I had little choice but to take part in discussions at BGG, where games now as a rule are presented as 'concepts' up for modification. It means that some inventors are getting pretty desparate. Towards the end of two very gloomy months, the difficulty of making a game that has the creation of a monocoloured loop as its only goal was reiterated by Nick Bentley. Given the invention of KnightVision and Uknight, it wasn't totally surprising that I would find a way. On the other hand, I'm not quite certain about its behaviour yet. The default territorial subgoal shouldn't turn out too dominant. I'll let you know later.
