Sorry about the redundancy in the teleporter rules. At first I was only
going to let the teleporter go back to the corner squares if they
were occupied by an enemy piece and let it explode, removing both the
teleporter and the enemy piece, and later decided to extend that to any
square on the player's own first rank occupied by an enemy piece. 

I won't give myself a grade here because obviously I am biased.
No one else has a comment for my game? I think I've created some rather
interesting and unique pieces here, don't you think? Bobber, Schizzies,
Teleporters, Crabs. It amazes me how few entries in this contest 
actually went for the most obvious configuration of either a 7 by 12
board, or a 12 by 7 board. 

I look forward to reading other comments to my game.
