46HOW TO PLAY THE GAME
47====================
48
49Save the chickens!
50
51The aim of the game is to make as much money as possible from your chicken
52farm. The problem is the foxes, which want to eat your chickens.  Since hiring
53guards is both too expensive and unreliable, the obvious solution is to help
54the chickens defend themselves.
55
56You lose if you end a night with no chickens left.
57
58Depending on the game length you select, you win if you survive for two weeks,
59three months or until you have chopped down all the trees in the forest and
60caused the complete extinction of the fox population.
61
62Chickens only lay eggs in henhouses, and must stay on the egg for 2 days to
63hatch a new chicken. Chickens that hatch in already full henhouses are
64moved to just outside. If there is no space outside, they die immediately
65from overcrowding.
