Other Games of Life

I've been playing with duplicating some of the results on the emergence of cooperation in variations of iterated prisoner's dilemma.

An interesting (if somewhat trivial) thing to note is how easily behaviour similar but distinct from the Game of Life. A small grid randomly populated only with Defectors and Cooperators, for instance, often produces glider-like patterns.

My goal is to implement some dynamic programming approach to generating strategies, and the attached source betrays that goal with some complexity that is unnecessary for the behaviour I'm talking about, but anyways.
