WELCOME TO THE LINOTTE'S NEST!
There is no such thing as a little bird to disturb you when playing linotte!
The linotte is a small bird quite forgetful and that's why somebody gave this
name to this small game. One should not forget that dices and fortune are very versatile!
Let's explain the game
Two players, a board, five dices and a little bit of spare time is all you need to play
In turn, each player throws the dices and has three tries to perform one of the figures that
are left on the board and put one of his 12 tokens on it. On the first try you MUST throw all the dices, after that it's up to you!
When three tokens of the same color are in a row, the player scores one point. The game ends if there are 5 tokens in a row,
or if one player used all his tokens (12 in all).
The version 0.9.7 brings a few enhancements in usability
