Object of the game
You play against someone else on your network. The object is to get four adjacent squares filled in with your color, either horizontal, vertical, or diagonal before your opponent does.
Selecting a location to play
Since the two players are not using the same computer, the game needs a spot on the network to swap information. Any network folder will do, as long as both players can access files there. To select a folder, click on File, Select Network Folder, find a file server you both use, and click OK. Both players must select the same location, and the game will remember it for you between sessions.
Pick a Color
One player needs to be Red, the other Blue. Click on File, and check whichever one you want to be.
Playing the game
Click on one of the numbered boxes at the bottom to place your color in the next available space above that number. Your number buttons will be greyed out when it is not your turn. When one of you wins, both of your number boxes will be greyed out, and the race is on to see who clicks New Game first!
While you play you can trade barbs, discuss where to go to lunch, or talk about the weather by clicking on Chat. Type in whatever you have to say and click OK.
