The game of Scoring is very simple: the board is a strip of several squares (parameter Heap size), on which there are placed several chips (whose number is controlled by the parameter # Counters). Taking turns with your computer you drag chips (one at a time) leftward until all are collected in the leftmost square. The last fellow to make a move wins.
