Warlocks (Spellcaster, Waving Hands, etc)

This is an amazing game of bluff and strategy. Each player is a Warlock in a duel to the death, casting spells by sequences of gestures on each hand. Proffered palm, snap, point, wriggle fingers casts "Charm Person", and Point, Wriggle, Wriggle, Point, Point casts "Lightning Bolt", so you can chain them to cast both in 7 actions rather than 9 since the "point, wriggle" overlaps. And you're using both hands. And there are counterspells, and fire elementals, and cause light wounds. But you know what would make the game even better?

A larger player base. Check it out!  And remember to summon the ogre at yourself and tell it to attack your opponent, don't summon it at your opponent or he'll control it.  (spiel cribbed from maknud)

Thanks, I have seen the offline version of this game in an old Linux distribution, and I always wanted to play it, but I have never decided to actually challenge anyone. Hopefully I can try now :)
