You know, if it doesn't teach pointers and recursion then it's not a real board game.

Philo, what time zone are you in? It's 5am Eastern right now and you're posting.

Well, some of us east coasters like to get a jump on the day.

And here I thought the 'GOTO' statement (Jump, right?) was not supposed to be used that much in 'C'.

Live and learn.

On a related note, it's sometimes really hard to make an entertaining game out of technology. From the look of the board, it doesn't look like they've succeeded yet.

re: c-jump

Wonderful. Some very brilliant guy could've made that. And I have a very strong urge to play that. And when I have a kid, I'll definitely buy him that game.

I am feeling like playing it myself too. It looks very nice. Why don't we start another secret santa so someone out of you can send me that game?

I was up until 5am drafting a response to an RFI due today that I got YESTERDAY.

But I got it in. :)

That used to happen a lot in my previous company. I'd get a one month stale RFP just before the bell because _they'd forgotten_ and I'd have to fly by the nick of time.
