The aim is to remain as faithful to the board game as is possible. Playing the Game ================ Pioneers is a multi-player game. Each player must run the Pioneers client: pioneers. One of the players must also run the Pioneers server: pioneers-server-gtk or pioneers-server-console. The GTK server has a user interface in which you can customise the game parameters. Once you are happy with the game parameters, press the Start Server button, and the server will start listening for client connections. When you start the client program, it displays a connect dialog. You must define the hostname and port where the server can be located. You can enter these manually, or press the Meta Server button. The meta server maintains a list of all registered Pioneers servers that are currently running a game. This allows you to join a game anywhere on the Internet. Pioneers is most fun with three or four players, but two players is still ok, or you can add some computer players if you like.
