This is a rewrite in C of the "Mugwump" games as described in D. H. Ahl (ed), Basic Computer Games, Workman Publishing, 1978, p. 114.

It is a very simple game where Mugwumps are hiding on positions on a grid.

Good game and music, thanks. It was a little hard to understand at first, but after reading the instructions I was able to play. I also added it to the New Games On C64 from January 2024 video.

gave it a play, but maybe i am too young to understand the conrols. I have no idea what to input.

There is a nice article explaining the game here:

This is just a remake with grid positions from zero to nine.
