A card game invented by Dave Turner, inspired by the chapter in Jared 
Diamond's _Collapse_ where the Vikings go to Greenland and then they all die. 

Greenland is currently playable in the terminal - just navigate to the directory 
where you saved it and type in "ruby greenland-play.rb" and have fun!

To run simulations with pre-set strategies, run "ruby greenland-sim.rb" instead.
(Though the only strategies currently defined are the human-user StdInput, and
the deadly default, DoNothing.)

Next steps:

1. Define a few other strategy subclasses.

2. Run simulations with those strategies to test gameplay and see if any of them 
actually work, or if the game rules need to be modified. 
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
