I'm honestly not sure what to make of this. It's an odd one.

I mean, when I think "board game using programming concepts," I think of stuff like RoboRally, where you put actions in a queue and they occur sequentially. This is just... strange. In C-jump, the value of X is set according to the die roll when a player is on the declaration square, but then it changes according to the die roll on later squares as well. This is kind of misleading.

interesting. I sent the link to a co-worker of mine (a programmer) who has a 4 year old son......

That's pretty cool. Might be a bit complicated for the really young ones, but still pretty cool.

I just bought a copy for our computer science department. I'll post a review when it comes.
