Comments: Maybe no one will notice these things are inedible if we distract them

I'm up for a game. But I get to be Grape.

I notice that you also fail to fully explain proper checker movement. You don't mention that reaching the back row and getting kinged always terminates that move. In other words, multiple jump sequences like jump-king-jump are never allowed. You assume that everyone knows about this. I mean, probably everyone does know this, and the case would almost never arise in this game, but that's no excuse for such laxness. :-)

(I know you're joking, but I'm going to pretend you're not because it makes for more dynamic dialogue.)

Yes, I did forget to point that out, although since I was only enumerating the failings of the Jell-O checkers rules, it would be a bit much to expect them to indicate the details of how kinging a piece always ends a turn when they don't even mention kinging a piece at all.

I also forgot to kick your ass! I will not forget in the future!
