You can probably get 14 evenly spaced sprites for that, maybe 16,
if you don't mind that the last two are two pixels too far left.
But in the 18 sprites demo, the spacing is a bit irregular with
big and small spacings and the spites lying on top of each other.
That wouldn't look too good as a display for extra men.

Do you want to say they don't even have a single VCS at MIT or
only that they won't let you use it for your own experiments? ;-)
