SYNOPSIS
       pioneers-server-console [ OPTIONS ]

DESCRIPTION
       This manual page	documents briefly the pioneers-server-console command.

       Pioneers	 is  an	implementation of the popular, award-winning "Settlers
       of Catan" board game for	the GNOME  desktop  environment.   It  uses  a
       client/server  model  for networked play	of between two and eight play-
       ers.  This program provides a console-only server that pioneers clients
       can connect to.
