Very cool!

I'm having fun figuring out the rules as I play.

Thanks for trying it out.

On a separate note, have added a screenshot.

Doesnt work on Firefox based browsers (here)
Will try later with Chromium/Chrome

aomewe:
FWIW, it seems to start up and one can play here on some recent versions of Firefox as well as Palemoon, though this is on some *NIX box.

During testing I noticed some not-so-nice timing issues on non-Chrome-based browsers so even if it were to work somewhat, the play might be awkward.  I didn't reflect this in the description appropriately, clearly erroneous.  Will update the info.

Thanks for trying and the feedback!
