NAME
       gznibbles,  znibbles,  znibblesX	- Clients for the ZNibbles multiplayer
       game.

SYNOPSIS
       znibbles	[options]..  playername

       gznibbles [options]..  playername

       znibblesX [options]..  playername

DESCRIPTION
       ZNibbles	is a classic multiplayer networked  game  for  X11,  GTK+  and
       Motif  based  on	 the old nibbles game. Each player controls a worm and
       tries to	grow as	much as	possible by  eating  nibbles.  Any  number  of
       players can join	the game at any	time. It is a client/server game which
       means multiple clients connect to a server located on the network.

       In order	to play	the game, you will have	to  start  a  ZNibbles	server
       first.  This is done by using nibbles(6).

       znibbles	is the ZNibbles	Motif client. It needs Motif 1.2.

       gznibbles is the	GTK+ client. This is probably the client you will want
       to use as it is kept more up to date.

       znibblesX is the	bare X11 client. This one will work on	a  much	 wider
       range of	platforms but is not as	nice as	other clients.
