Re(6): Listener No. 4368: The Name of the Game by Harribobs

A case of ignorance is bliss. The concept was new to me, and although I found conflicting ideas on the internet as to what was meant by 'second generation', I had no trouble deciding what was intended as the solution. It would have been astonishing, and unsatisfying, if the solution had consisted of a random arrangement of highlighted cells. I think that if an alternative solution were acceptable, that would have been stated on the Listener website by now.

Like Derek, my initial attempts at enacting the changes were unsuccessful, mainly because I had trouble observing the simultaneity rule, and made additional errors. In the end I saw enough of LIFE emerge to back-track and see where I'd gone wrong.

I thought it was a fascinating theme, superbly executed. Constructing the grid must have been a bit of a nightmare.
