In the footnote to the previous post, I mentioned that A Tale in the Desert was boring. When I played it, I really thought so. However, I had forgotten (or never realized) what an amazing, amazing game it is. Totally not my thing, but check out the wikipedia page, it's intense. For example, the rules of the game (though, of course, bounded by the programmers' ability) are "a controlled version of Nomic". Egad.
