Well, basically you control a snake with your arrow keys and drive it around the board. The idea is to not crash into yourself or any walls.

In this case, you play against a friend logged onto the same server and try not to crash into your opponent. You lose if you hit yourself or your opponent.

Pretty simple stuff..

    Yeah, I figured it out finally. My problem was the time delay was too short for playing on a lan, it was over before I could hit a key. The other problem was I wasn't hitting a key after the "game end", I was just killing the xterm, so the socket wasn't getting unlinked, and I couldn't restart. But now I think it's a cool game. Nice Job. It's a clever intro to curses programming.
