Uh, yeah, that's pretty much the game description. Note that this game is completely free; just download the image off the website, get a couple of pens of different color, and you're done!
If you're played the game of Y and are familiar with it, then this little expansion to it will probably be interesting, especially if you find Y analyzed to death and want a slightly new variant. But... are there actually any people that fit that category? As far as I know, there are two types of people in the world: Those who think Y is a great game, still has a lot to be discovered about it, and aren't even close to tiring about it ... and those who find the game as uninteresting as watching ink dry.
I think that overall, the human race will have to gain a few more average IQ points, and lose a lot of modern-day entertainment, before this game will have a shot at hitting the mass market. (And is that a good thing or a bad thing...?)
