Re: Puzzle Codename: Nibbler
I think instead of feeding a cracker to the parrot, and the parrot then picking a random spot, the player should place a cracker on the board (where the *player* wants information). The parrot then swoops down, snags the cracker, and leaves the fruit behind. This would encourage high level players to examine the board to see which location would give them the most information.

We may need to have the board reset less often than every 3 correct placements. Hmmm.... 6? just every time a row/col/diagonal is removed? no... I think that last would make it too easy for people to plan doubles and triples. Definitely every time a player booches.
