Does that mean the snakes should be moving (even though it's not the real game yet)? The clock is counting down every 2 hours, but nobody's moved more than one square yet and the pending moves list isn't shrinking.

I'm guessing the crontab for this never made it over from the previous server. I'll try to figure out what script needs to be run...

Should work now. I'll try to keep an eye on it the next couple times it should run to make sure.

Yep, appears to be working. Until the next thing doesn't work!

Whoa! Not paying attention! I had a busy weekend. Okay I'm on it now. Thankfully RabidChild made that first jump or I would already be dead. I salute you, sir, but I will still give you all no quarter!

Poor Tuttle indeed. His bump instead of jump 22 turns ago (at coordinates (8,19)) may have seemed innocuous, but during that time TripleM blocked all three columns in the southwest corner, and jamesdenem sealed off the escape route back to the northwest corner.

I think the large number of unjumpable walls near the center of the board may yet play similar roles.

Yeah, I think at the time I didn't realize there would be a snake head directly in my way, thought it might be a couple squares off or something.

Looking forward to see who wins!

Welcome to the right-hand list, Chaco! Just wait -- everyone else will eventually figure out that this is the place to be.

Someone Else, I think I am going to block you in 5 moves to death, but I am not 100% sure.

Well, looks like TripleM managed to keep me from being sure of escaping this corner I've gotten in to...

Depending on what Timo006 does for his next turn or 2 will determine if I die quickly or manage to survive another 10 turns or so.

Either way, I don't think I'll be winning this, but I hope I will place well as I outlast others in more dangerous places...

Someone Else is out of the game. Both Jamesdenem and Pinnacle seem to be on the final stretch (respectively 11 moves and 17 moves), while I'll be forced to enter the same area where Skell is.

And it looks like TripleM will be eliminated next, unless a miracle occurs.

That was because of me, I'm afraid :P
Now I just have to see if anyone else will bite the dust before I do in 8 turns.

I'm dead in 8 turns which should make me take third, or possibly second.

I think I've checked all possible outcomes, and that's how the results look:

Jamesdemen will die in 3 moves.
Bombadil will die in 1 move.
Pinnacle will die, depending on the actions taken, will die either in 2 or in 5 moves.
RyTracer will die in 4.

So it's basically me vs Timo.

That, or I am wrong somewhere ;).

And with the last move, I should be able able to outlast every other player, with Skell in 2nd place and RyTracer in 3rd place.

Timo006 is correct on player placement, as Pinnacle has an unjumpable wall between him and further movement.

It was a fun run, and hope that the Snakes game will be done again, or turned into some sort of minigame download...

Congrats Timo006, that was a fun ending :). At first I was sure I'll win. Then I realize I misunderstood the rules and thought that I can win. And then I've figured out I can only get the second place.

Thanks everyone, it was a really nice game (even though I accidentally missed my first 70 moves) with quite a number of surprises. I'm definitely up for another round, possibly with a bigger arena, or the same arena with everyone in a different starting positions.:)
