Yeah, the system requirements are too steep if you ask me. Physics for a bunch of boxes has to be fairly simple. There is no concideration of weight - only center of gravity type calculations.

The authors are students learning at a game programming college. The innovation is in the territory determination algorithm - something that couldn't be done in a physical game without a pressure sensitive game board. They are really thinking inside the box. :)

Your territory is based on the height and 2D positioning on the board. Faster to gain territory by moving up, but also more vulnerable to attack / colapse.

There is much room for variety in the game:
- different shaped boards
- different weapons
- cooperative play
:idea:
