JESTER(6)                                                  JESTER(6)



NAME
       jester - an X-based game similar to Othello(tm)

SYNOPSIS
       jester  [{-display,  -d,  --display}  display]  [{-h,  -help,
       --help}] [-2players] [-ai {white, black}]

DESCRIPTION
       jester is an X-based game similar to the board game  Othello.
       jester allows you to waste hours of otherwise productive time
       that could be spent playing Solitaire instead.

GAME PLAY
       There are two players, one  playing  the  white  pieces,  the
       other  playing  the  black  pieces.   Each player takes turns
       placing a piece of his or her color on an  8x8  board.   Each
       piece  must  be  placed  so as to bracket a line of the oppo‐
       nent's pieces between two of  the  current  player's  pieces.
       When  this  happens,  the  opponent's  pieces are replaced by
       pieces of the current player's color.

       When the cursor is over a square that it  is  legal  for  the
       current player to play in, the cursor will change to a point‐
       ing hand.  A small rectangle in the upper right side  of  the
       window shows the color of the current player.

       The  game  ends  when  a  player  cannot  make a move, either
       because the board is full or  because  the  position  of  the
       pieces  makes  it  impossible to make a move.  At this point,
       the player with the most pieces on the board is  the  winner.
       You will be offered the option of starting a new game.

       You may exit at any time by clicking the “Exit” button.

   OPTIONS
       -d, -display, --display display
              Display on display.

       -h, -help, --help
              Print a help message and exit.

       -2players
              Play against another person at the same console.

       -ai {white, black}
              Tell  the  computer  which  side to play.  The default
              behavior is equivalent to -ai black.

ENVIRONMENT
       jester uses the environment variable “DISPLAY” as the default
       display.  This can be overridden on the command line.

BUGS
       None known...
