Rules of the game : Eggs finder

Presentation of the game and objective

Dragon Eggs Hunt is actually the game Minesweeper, which is a board game by Coan.net and the author is Michael A. Coan. Mr Coan gave us his authorization to implement a version of his game on the site and we thank him a lot
The game is a variant of the popular Windows game and changed so that it can be played with 2 players.
At the start of the game 5 blue dragon eggs and 5 red dragon eggs are hidden in the 11x11 board. The goal of the game is to determine (or guess) where the opponent's eggs are before your opponent find your own eggs.
For guessing a egg correctly you earn points, if you guess wrong you will loose points. If all eggs of a player are found the game is finished.



How to play the game here on the site

The game starts with the board as shown above. The middle spot is open. That means that there is no eggs directly adjacent to this spot (horizontal, vertical and diagonal). You can see your own eggs in a shade color, on the dark green background. Your opponents does not see them, but can see his own eggs. (White player's eggs are blue, and black's player eggs are red) Players take turns by doing one of the following actions:
- Click 1x on a spot (Black question mark with light green background): this will show the number of surrounding eggs. Watch out: if there is an opponent's egg on this spot, then you will get minus points AND your opponent will get bonus points(see below).
-Click 2x on a spot (White question mark on an egg with light green background): now you guess that there is a negg on that spot. If you are right you will earn points, if you are wrong you will loose points (see below).

Every action is visible for your opponent, except if you guessed wrong. A wrong guess is visible in the move list, but not where the player guessed. You can however see your own wrong guesses. After some time the board can look like:





- You can loose and earn points with:
- If you accidentally hit an egg: -5 points. besides losing 5 points, your opponent is given 5 extra points in this situation.
- If you guess an egg correctly: +5 points.
- If you guess and there is not an egg: -3 points.

End of the game

The game ends if one pf both players have found (or hit) his opponent's 5 eggs. At this stage, the player who ended the game by findinf all opponent's eggs gets a bonus of 2 points and 1 point for each own egg which was not found by the opponent.
The player with the most points (or least minus points) wins the game. If both players have the same amount of points, the game ends as draw.
