The Game of Life was invented by British Mathematician John Conway in 1970. It is more a simulation that a game, and a tool for exploring the concept of Emergence. Mr. Conway believed that a few simple rules applied to a system can give rise to organized, complex and seemingly designed behaviour.
The Game of Life is conducted on an NxN grid. Each cell of the grid has two states : ON or OFF. You could assume that a cell is an organism. Its birth, survival or death in the next generation depends on the following rules.
The Game of Life makes a very pleasant demo over the Internet. There are scores of versions already available but I couldnt resist developing my own version. So Enjoy!
