Bollix is a word game based on a possibly familiar real-life game. Find as many words as possible on a 4x4 board of random letters in three minutes. Longer words award more points.
At the moment, Bollix is a one- or two-player game. I don't have much confidence in the networking code yet, which is why I consider this version to be Òalpha.Ó Ultimately I'd like to have network games with an arbitrary number of players.
