Yeah, but how do you want to make the maze? :?
Otherwise, i would really love that. Teritorrial battles seem to be a good idea, but then we need the "slime" to play with. And, colours! :D

Wow! Surprised I saw this on here. I actually own a few cultures of this stuff, you can by it from Carolina biological.

If I were to make it in cell lab, at least as of current update I would use glueocytes, phageocytes and flagellocytes. Real slime molds consist of massive colonies of amobae, and hunt for food by sending out lots of amoebae then creating paths between the food sources they find. So, you would want to be able to send out several paths, then maybe use nitrocytes and lipocytes to keep the paths working. Now of course You may have to some how replace the phagocytes with devorocytes and keratinocytes in order to eat food and other organisms.

Slime mold is great!

Well Raven, not all here live in the states ;) And I've read that it apparently can be a hassle for European customers to order there.
Perfection hasnt reached me yet, but its trying hard!
