NAME

SYNOPSIS

       pioneers-server-console [ OPTIONS ]

DESCRIPTION

       This manual page documents briefly the pioneers-server-console command.

       Pioneers  is  an implementation of the popular, award-winning "Settlers
       of Catan" board game for the GNOME  desktop  environment.   It  uses  a
       client/server  model  for  networked  play  of  between  two  and eight
       players.  This program provides a  console-only  server  that  pioneers
       clients can connect to.
