Call me an idiot, but what is a "jimper"?

Not a clue.
But apparently it's in the Scrabble word list, so.. um.. *shrugs*
Maybe make up your own meaning!!
Be creative!

Jimp
adjective Scot. and North England.
slender; trim; delicate.
scant; barely sufficient.

So, Jimper would be, presumably, "more slenderer"!!

I..... see..... Nice detail when I typed the message above my spellchecker also didn't know what a "Jimper" was and noted it as a misspelled word.
At first I thought it was because English is not my first language (I guess it's obvious my first language is Dutch), but as the spellchecker didn't know it...

It suggests "Imper", "Limper", "Simper", "J imper", "Jim Per"... No idea who Jim Per is, though

Sounds like the name of a cat!

Hmmm, yeah... Could be... I named my cat Kitty... But then again, my cat is a female, so I would not call her "Jim"

OK, did a game.
Shoehorned much? Sure!
But it's a nice little game, none the less.

In "Jimper", your task is to create "Jimps", matches between adjacent cards.
Lay the cards out, one by one. You'll score more for making more Jimps per card, and if you make multiple Multi-Jimps in a row, you'll earn combo points!
It's half solitaire, half puzzle game.
Have at!

You can Play Jimper in the Shoebox, under the Misc section.

I couldn't come up with anything for this one. It was a bit bizarre for me!
