Game of Life Refactoring Kata
This kata currently includes working code and tests. Your mission is to refactor the code with the Liskov Substitution Principle in mind. While the first thing on your mind should be LSP, don't be afraid to use other design principles to make this happen.
This kata is based on the Game of Life kata at codingdojo.org.

Here are some things to think about as you refactor
- One smell that can indicate a Liskov Substitution Principle violation is the presence of
- Once this has been recognized, try organizing the code so that LSP is not violated.
- Remember that we still don't want unnecessarily duplicated code.
