Playing a new game

Leave a comment

The Furlong grandson came to visit. Mr Furlong and he framed a picture in Mr Furlong’s work shop. It went well. Grandson seemed to have a good time. But since he went home, I have been playing a new game on the internet.

Grandson plays it, and I saw him hard at work before lunch doing something fascinating on his tablet. So he shared.

The game is called  Agar. And you can find it HERE.

I knew agar as something used in laboratories –

Chemically, agar is a polymer made up of subunits of the sugar galactose, and is a component of the cell walls of several species of red algae that are usually harvested in eastern Asia and California. Dissolved in boiling water and cooled, laboratory agar looks gelatinous. Although agar’s chief use is as a culture medium for various microorganisms, particularly for bacteria, its other less well-known uses include serving as a thickening for soups and sauces, in jellies and ice cream, in cosmetics, for clarifying beverages, and for sizing fabrics”

So we eat it too!

The game is mighty fascinating! And very difficult. And fun. You can be a bacteria called any name you want – just type it in CAPS and play as a guest. Don’t forget to look at settings – I like the “dark” ground.

Try it.

Please do comment! That's part of the fun...
