My best is 4 turns. That was the work of Fortune, I think, though.

I used to hate gravity because it would not let me fly. Now I realize it is gravity that lets me stand.

Thanks... I've been playing this for a couple of hours now. On the other hand, Saturdays at work are incredibly slow, so it does give me something to do : )
