As some of you no doubt know, I have very recently installed NetBSD on three of my own personal Macintosh computers. Probably one of the first things I did, after configuring my NetBSD installations, was to check out the games directory.
I was somewhat intrigued by an application in the games directory called, War Games. Anybody that knows anything about me, will know precisely why this particular game captured my attention.
Anyway, it turns out that War Games is not a game at all. In fact, the only way to win, is not to play. And this, as you might imagine, has me even more enamored with this not-quite-a-game game.
When you type the filename at the shell prompt, you are immediately greeted with that all too familiar phrase, "Shall we play a game?" As you can probably tell, you get a choice of two possible responses: Yes & No.
This is the part that floors me! It does not matter which answer you choose! You get the same response, regardless. The game responds with this, "The only winning move is not to play."
