if you end up making any more of these, a halpful thing would be to put a qick list of what the different colors do, up in a corner somewhere as a quick reference. thanks for teaching the game.

Yeah, they're not the best reference cards, but, since I only thought again about doing it when I was at work yesterday, I didn't really have time to come up with anything better for last night. I think we could probably come up with something good.

So, besides a color reference, what other features would you as a new player find helpful on the screen?

the color-coded screen was really helpful for me.

in order of helpfulness to me:

the cheatsheet list would help.

reminder that changing orientation counts as one of the moves dictated by the program. (ie might need a bigger piece than you thought, so don't miscalculate that bit.)

reminder that other people's pieces can be knocked over to meet your goal, plus listing the situations when one player has to give another player one (or 2) pieces, & how those pieces are determined.

if for a bunch of newbies playing together, a rminder of the original order of color precedence and that the bottom one moves to the top.
