Re: Results of catalyst tests

How often do you suppose it will be useful? The glider predecessor is fairly common, but what are the chances of sparks behind it interacting with it in the right way? As is pretty much always the case with any catalyst I (or most likely anyone else) post, the particular active region I happen to u...

Crossposting a new catalyst with limited but nonzero utility based on a billiard table by Martin Grant:

a bunch of entries Thank you so much for doing all this, your effort is so greatly appreciated!

Re: Thread for your Trolls

Actually, Bellman might be able to turn up a stable catalyst. A stable catalyst seems highly unlikely — there don't seem to be any interactions that can occur with a still life that generate the correct domino spark, let alone restore the catalyst — but a p2 catalyst or a phase-shifting mechanism a...

REQUEST: Merge this with Word Chains (Game). I agree. The options for this game constitute a subset of the options for Word Chains. Sometimes more constrained options make for better games. I like this one much better than word chains so far, and I wouldn't like to see them merged. Iron Steel
