This game was played quite a bit in our group when it came out for the 
Mac.  The competition for high score fell way off, though, when one 
person got a lucky board and was able to select a group of over 40 tiles.

Oops - my apologies; it turns out that the last-minute changes I made 
went into a different change set, to the fileout didn't get them.  I have 
updated the change set on my web page.

The implementation of tilesRemaining should be:


	^ (submorphs reject: [:m | m disabled]) size

Yeah!  Although it's also quite tempting to use the halo's to inspect and 
change the color of a "stubborn" tile ;-)
