In November 2007, a new board game called Yavalath was invented. Yavalath has proven reasonably popular as its simple rules allow interesting and surprising situations to develop due to its innovative win with four but lose with three winning condition. But Yavalath is really set apart from the many other board games invented in 2007 by one remarkable fact: Yavalath was designed by a computer programme.
Remember that 8 bit game where you used your arrow keys to move a snake around the screen and have it eat up dots? With every dot, the snake got longer and less manageable. Well, here is that game hidden inside of a You Tube video. Just pause the clip and hold down your arrow keys to get started.

"I'm still having problems with the lighting renders on the late afternoon games," the 72 year old former coach of the Oakland Raiders said. "I can't seem to get accurate color texture because my diffusion rates won't stay constant."

OUYA is an Android-based open-source console gaming system. It allows - nay, encourages - people to develop their own games for it, as well as playing the always-growing library of games. It's completely hackable, it costs 99 bucks, and you can pre-order one on Kickstarter now.
We were both renters and landlords, we fought over who could be the 'car' and we hid stashes of $100s under the board. Monopoly took hold on generations as one of the most famous board games in the world.
Wouldn't it be fun to put on a top hat or thimble and take a spin around the board to revisit the properties that made up Monopoly. And try and make comparisons between the properties that Monopoly was originally based on and those same properties as they exist today. Some interesting tidbits and some surprises, too

It's just a week now until The Amazing Spider-Man comes out, so here's something to keep you busy until then. The 1981 Spider-Man Mad Libs book. There's a fun story with Electro and one where Spidey fights the most horrible evil of all, costume odor. You can download the whole thing as a PDF too.
You've never heard of this game. It's in only one cabinet, playable in one city and, generously estimating, maybe it makes a dollar a day. Nothing about this video game suggests it's someone's meal ticket, but it is. For life.

Q: As war games become more realistic, do they have a responsibility to add humanitarian elements to their games?
A: Only if they want them to tank.
Seeing as how I make my living on a computer, touch typing has actually paid off quite well - but even without that career path, Z-Type makes all those typing classes worthwhile. TYPE TO KILL!
Your most productive day of the week?
Nothing! Player's off!
