We're nearly there! And it's Conway with a late entry!
Hail Eris! We're on the last planet before we get to Santa!
Unfortunately, we also have a bug problem.
In Part 1, we need to apply some generative rules to a field of points where critters magically live and die based upon the status of their neighbors. We also need to calculate a score based upon their position at the first sign of a loop in their lifecycle!
Those Plutoers (Plutesians? Plutannescos?) must have been here, though... It turns out these critters are generating in recursive space! In Part 2 we need to simulate 200 ticks of the infinitely recursive plane.

If you were part of Ryan Palo's leaderboard last year, you're still a member of that!
If you want me to add your leaderboard code to this page, reply to one of these posts and/or send me a DM containing your code and any theming or notes you’d like me to add. (You can find your private leaderboard code on your "Private Leaderboard" page.)
I'll edit in any leaderboards that people want to post, along with any description for the kinds of people you want to have on it. (My leaderboard is being used as my office's leaderboard.) And if I get something wrong, please call me out or message me and I’ll fix it ASAP.
There's no limit to the number of leaderboards you can join, so there's no problem belonging to a "Beginner" and a language specific one if you want.
