       ricochet - client application for multi-player ricochet robots game


       ricochet --host <hostname> --port <port> --name <username> --game <gamename> --watch


       Ricochet  is  a client for the Ricochet Robots server (rrserve). It provides a view of the
       board and permits the user to fully interact with the server, both  managing  the  set  of
       games running in the server and playing individual games.


       Options are as follows:

              Print a help/usage message and exit.

       -h,--host hostname
              Select  the  host running the Ricochet Robots server. By default, ricochet connects
              to localhost

       -p,--port port
              Select the TCP port to connect to. By default, ricochet connects to port 5252.

       -n,--name username
              Specify the player name to present to the server. This name will be  shown  to  all
              other players. By default, this is the user's login name.

       -g,--game  gamename
              Select a game to join or create. By default, ricochet presents a dialog showing the
              available games and also allowing the user to create a new game.

              This allows the user to watch the selected game rather than participating in it.
