Scoring


First photos

The first time that you plant a bacteria, you get 10 points

If you’re the first type of a bacteria in an area, you get 10 points

Distance

After that, it depends how close you are to other bacteria of the same type. Cultivate your colony! You want to find places that are near other bacteria, but not TOO near-- find new territories, but not TOO far out-- your bacteria need to be near each other to support each other and grow.

TOO CLOSE - 40 feet or less 1 point

TOO FAR - 3.5 miles or farther 1 point

EVERYTHING ELSE - between 3 points and 28 points

Instagram likes

Based on how others judge the home you found for your bacteria on Instgram, you will get bonus points!

For each Instram like, you will get 1 point
