New Version! Germ Battle
Several levels to choose from. Can choose how many of 6 defenders to use, and they each have costs.
The object of the game is to get a positive health score.
Set up a challenge for yourself (can you beat level 2 using only apples? How about with a spawn time of 5 seconds?)
I find it very Zen-like to set up your defenders and then watch the game unfold.

No germ survived but my scores were terrible.
In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
Of course that result can be rigorously obtained, but who cares?
Combinatorics is Algebra and Algebra is Combinatorics.
