Creating a Team called "Plan Do Check Act"
A fledgling snake loses lot.
As the snake's programmer, I started turning losses into challenges.
For example, when the snake and I lost because we ran into another snake's head, we took it as a challenge to program ourselves to avoid moving to squares that could end up creating a head-on problem.
Then, if we lost because we didn't take the opportunity to make a head-kill, that created a challenge to program ourselves to initiate offensive strikes.
