Re: An Study, or an exercise, o a new way of art ?

I wouldn't say CGoL is a new way of art, but certainly many can express themselves creatively with it. I do say CGoL is meant to be used in any way you see fit.

Re: Diamonds And Spaceships Rule

YakForger is "playing" with CA, which is what I think we all are doing, really. Honestly I used to "play" with the Star Wars rule just to watch the "battles" in the building of structures. I would sit there for hours. There's really nothing wrong with how any of us "plays" with CA.
