Simplified castle panic (for 3yo)


  • Place six towers and six walls in the center of the board.
  • Find 5 Goblin tokens, 3 Orc tokens, and 2 Troll tokens. Return the other tokens to the box.
  • Shuffle the tokens and place them facedown next to the board.
  • Roll the die. Ignoring the Forest ring, place a random token face-up on the outermost ring of that die's wedge, pointing the highest number corner towards the center (its hit points).
    • If the wedge is full, re-roll the die and try again.
  • Create a shuffled deck of only Swordsman, Knight, Archer, Hero, and Barbarian cards. Return the other cards to the box.

Older bash prompt
# Set the bash prompt according to:
# * the active virtualenv
# * the branch/status of the current git repository

ROT Pairs

Finds a list of tuples, each of which is a triple (word1, word2, n) where word1 and word2 are Scrabble words of length 4, and n is a number such that word2 is a ROT-n cypher of word1.

Word list

You'll need your own Scrabble word list. I used SOWPODS, which I found here: Save it as words.txt to use the script.
