Fish Race is a very cute game, featuring five colourful
fish who race across an underwater scene.
The object of the game is to back the winning fish.
You can bet on the outcome of each race. If you win
you score a point.
After that it's up to you how you play -
you could, for example, compete against your friends to
be the first to a set number of points. You could even
combine it in with another game - using the race as an
elaborate dice or qualifier!
The game works in all modern graphical browsers

How to play
At the beginning of each race you can bet
on the fish you fancy, but once the fish
are swimming you can't change your bet.
Any players who aren't named will bet automatically:
The game defaults to even points - each fish has an equal chance of winning.
You can also use biased odds so that some fish have a
much lower chance of winning, and consequently
score more points:
The purple fish scores 1 point
The blue fish scores 2 points
The orange fish scores 3 points
The green fish scores 4 points
The white fish scores 5 points
This is controlled with two buttons:
There are five more buttons to the left of those, which set the game speed.
This feature allows
for different processors (and different amounts of patience)!
You can change the speed at any point in the game:
The final button begins a new race, which you can
also do at any point in the game:
