Bugger, I've checked that so many times, will look 
when I get a chance...

Was fairly difficult, had to make a software stack to 
cater for the number of possibilities. It shouldn't 
(with any luck) run into the actual code!

That's right it has to be three or more to not incur
a penalty. My girlfriend and can get to about level 
five...a hint pressing TAB gets you a different set
of randomness. Beware it resets the game to no score!


PS: Glad you all liked it and no negative responses
That's made my birthday!
