Hot Potato

Hot Potato

You control a crack delivery team of couriers.
You've been tasked with a special delivery.
A very important package must be delivered to
a very important person on the far side of the plaza.

Unfortunately, this very important package seems
to have gotten some attention from the
very important person's enemies, and they sent
agents to try to stop you.

It's a crowded plaza, so try to maneuver around
the pedestrians and avoid the agents.

Get that package to the VIP!

How to play:

Each turn has four phases:

- Move Couriers
- Shove Couriers
- Move Pedestrians
- Move Agents

The first two phases allow you to control your team of couriers.

Click to select the highlighted courier. Then click on the
highlighted tiles to move or shove.

Agents and the VIP can't be shoved,
but couriers and pedestrians can be moved one space.

If there are multiple shoveable entities in a line,
all of them will be shoved one space in the same direction.

If the courier holding the package shoves into a line with any couriers, the
last courier in the line will be passed the package.

Win by getting the package into a tile adjacent to the VIP.
Lose by letting the package get adjacent to the enemy agents.

This would be a great board game.

Gameplay of this really confused me until I re-read your instructions several times. For one thing I thought the package was indicating which of my couriers was selected.

It died after a few turns with this error: http://pastebin.com/4d7M2NXs
