Ever wondered what Conway's Game of Life would be if two tribes of cells would fight for dominance ? Well now is your chance. Devise cunning groups of cells that quickly expand so that you can claim the blue area. Unfortunately your opponent tries the same with yours :-)


The game is controlled using the mouse.

The objective is to claim at least 96% of the board.

You can only control the part of the board that is red. By clicking on an empty cell you will place a living one from the inventory. By clicking on an living cell you will remove it from the board and into the inventory. You need to form groups of cells that expand into the blue area.

Visit the site for some strategic tips and useful shapes to dominate the board.
