I wonder if more than 2 players is possible!

I hear there is an upgrade coming to the jacdac system for single wire communication between consoles. Does Greg N. know about this? I only see one (1) game made for 2 players with 2 consoles; there may be more and I’d like to know it if there are. I cannot see this game code (Space Destroyers) in blocks, only JavaScript. I wonder if there is some reason for that? Our kids would get more out of Arcade multiplayer if they could see the program in block form . Maybe that is not possible. In the multiplayer code I only see “player 1” and 'player 2" ; maybe you could add “player 3” and see if it breaks. Also it looks like the program accounts for multiplayer but I don’t know how our kids could add these lines to their original single person games to make them playable by 2.
programState = ProgramState.Playing;
const g = new multiplayer.Game(socket);
g.startGame();
return;

OK, Pelikhan says they are working on it:
“Multiplayer games will come to blocks eventually but we’re still working on the underlying communication protocol. Stay tuned, you’ll see tutorials showing once it’s ready.”
