I tried playing the multiplayer life game 'Conway's Multiplayer Game of Life' where you can observe the growth and death of cells for free
Life Game ' is a mathematical model developed by mathematician John Horton Conway , and you can observe the life, death, and evolution of life by increasing or decreasing cells. I tried playing the browser game ' Conway's Multiplayer Game of Life ' that allows multiple people to enjoy such a life game at the same time.
Conway's Multiplayer Game of Life
The top screen of 'Conway's Multiplayer Game of Life' looks like this. The screen of the life game is placed in the center, and the high score ranking, chat, and online players are displayed below it.
To start the game, first decide on the player color. The player color changes depending on the position of the mouse pointer in the frame marked 'your color'. I decided to play in blue this time.

Next, I will arrange it in a shape called a
The cell moved diagonally upward as expected, but it came into contact with a cell placed by another player.
If a cell comes into contact with another player, the cell of the player that fills many surrounding cells will survive. This time, the green player's cell survived and the blue cell died.
So I investigated the arrangement of cells and tried to arrange them.
I thought, 'I want to grow more cells!',
The placed cells will grow steadily. Thinking that 'it will continue to grow as it is' ...
A cell placed by another player has moved and touched.
The cell mass was larger for the blue player, but the contact position was bad and most of the proliferated cells died.
'Conway's Multiplayer Game of Life' is a multiplayer game, but it's perfect for killing time because you can see how your cell and other players' cells come into contact and change shape, not the reason why the game is decided.
