    wow, I’ve gotta say, as a programmer, this seems like a great way to introduce my non-geeky friends and wife to the joy of programming, and kids too.

    And if you want to see and old-school computer board game, take a look at this – it’s a board game called Computer Rage from 1977 that I found (still shrink-wrapped) at a thrift store:

    I was interested to see the comments on the Computer Rage board game. I designed the game as a grad student at Stanford in ’73, and subsequently sold it to Creative Computing magazine which published it. Anyone interested in background on the game can contact me at AlanBS58@aol.com.
