Drawing Life 1 Pixel at a Time
Nicely done Ken!
Probably why I never played it much, either. My father had to have all the rules just so, and I'd rather build things and then push them over.....Someone taught me how to play dominos a couple years ago. As a game it's just too easy. They are much more fun to line up and watch them fall.
We had tinkertoys and an erector set when I was a kid. Legos were several decades later. Though I borrowed the whole set my neighbor was going to sell on eBay to have a grand building blow out before he sold them. (Yes, as an adult...)I bet you loved "building" with Legos.
