### Catalyses (Game)

Each round, the poster posts an active region, like this one:

Code: Select all

``````x = 5, y = 4, rule = B3/S23
3bo\$o2b2o\$b2o\$2bo!
``````
The active region must be inside a 8x8 bounding box.
Then someone places catalysts around the active region, to 1. eat the active region or 2. turn the active region into a 'standard' methuselah, plus some optional gliders. Like this:

Code: Select all

``````x = 14, y = 16, rule = B3/S23
2o\$bo\$bobo\$2b2o2b2o\$6b2o2\$12b2o\$7bo4b2o\$4bo2b2o\$5b2o\$6bo\$2b2o\$bobo\$bo\$
2o!
``````
Then (s)he becomes the new poster, and the process continues.

To begin:

Code: Select all

``````x = 8, y = 4, rule = B3/S23
b2o3b2o\$o6bo\$o3bobo\$b4o!
``````
Help us investigate B3/S23-a6!

Code: Select all

``````x = 8, y = 12, rule = B3/S23-a6
2bo\$b4o\$o2b2o\$b2obo2\$4bo\$3bo\$2bobo\$3bob2o\$3bo3bo\$3bo2bo\$5bo!
``````

Next region:

``````x = 6, y = 8, rule = B3/S23
3bo\$bo3bo\$o4bo\$o3bo\$2b2o\$4bo\$4b2o\$3bo!

There is a trivial glider converter, see if anyone can spot it.
