## Fate (Game)

A forum where anything goes. Introduce yourselves to other members of the forums, discuss how your name evolves when written out in the Game of Life, or just tell us how you found it. This is the forum for "non-academic" content.

### Fate (Game)

The goal of this game is to achieve the most points, with the wiki split into two teams.
Differentiate yourselves into team A and team B thus:
Team A: Usernames beginning with A-M
Team B: Usernames beginning with N-Z
Usernames beginning with 0-9 or _: Hooray! You get to pick.

The goal of the game:
The attacking team attempts to kill the pattern by adding cells. They must add exactly one cell per turn.
The defending team attempts to preserve the pattern by deleting cells. They must delete exactly one cell per turn.
The attacking team makes its turn first.
EDIT: After each turn, the pattern runs for exactly one generation.
Once the pattern is dead, the number of generations the defenders held out is added to the defending team's score.
After each round, the teams switch roles.
Each starting pattern will be a randomized 5x5.

Let round 1 begin!
Pattern:
`x = 5, y = 5, rule = B3/S23obo\$3b2o\$4bo\$5o\$3bo!`
Life is hard. Deal with it.
My favorite oscillator of all time:
`x = 7, y = 5, rule = B3/S2-i3-y4i4b3o\$6bo\$o3b3o\$2o\$bo!`

### Re: Fate (Game)

I hope this is how it's supposed to work (use the right):
`x = 5, y = 5, rule = B3/S232bo\$2b2o\$o3bo\$2o2bo\$o2bo!`

It makes a paperclip

Not really. Add one cell and then advance the pattern one generation.

That's what I did, sorry, I forgot to include the 1-gen predecessor:
`x = 5, y = 5, rule = B3/S23obo\$3b2o\$4bo\$5o\$3b2o!`

Since no one is replying, I'll just play for the opposite team for a bit:
`x = 5, y = 5, rule = B3/S232bo\$2b2o\$o\$2o2bo\$o2bo!`

The attacking team has already won, because the pattern decays into at most two dominos and the attacking team can then play a cell that influences neither.

New pattern:
`x = 5, y = 5, rule = Life3obo\$2b3o\$2bobo\$4o\$3b2o!`

I will also defect to the Latters because it appears they don't see this thread, so First Attack:
`x = 6, y = 5, rule = B3/S23b3obo\$o2b3o\$3bobo\$b4o\$4b2o!`

Score:
A: 0

(Bottom 1st inning)

Since I am still on Team B, we're waiting...

### Re: Fate (Game)

I propose we either declare Attacks and Defenses or use LifeHistory's marker states to show how the pattern has been affected, like so:
`x = 30, y = 6, rule = LifeHistory13.D11.A\$.3A.A6.3A.A7.2A.3A\$C2.3A6.A3.2A5.2A3.2A\$3.A.A6.A3.A7.2AC.2A\$.4A8.A10.5A\$4.2A7.A.2A9.A!`

Here we can clearly see the effects of the past three turns and that it is now the Defenders' turn.

But what about usernames that begin with characters that are not numerals, not part of the English alphabet and are non-underscore characters?
My username starts with the Greek alphabet letter Β (beta).
Sorry, some of my rules before April 20 2019 have Unicode characters that are not compatible with Golly; you will have to remove them when pasting them in your text editor.
