Description

Board game version of Conway's Game of Life.

Rules

At each tick, a set of rules are applied to every board cell, which determine whether a piece 'lives' or 'dies' at each cell. Any live cell with two or three live neighbours survives.
Any dead cell with three live neighbours becomes a live cell.
All other live cells die in the next generation. Similarly, all other dead cells stay dead.
