timeout

It is wonderful what you can do with a DOS emulator and an old game

I'm coming to the conclusion that really good old games are better than good new ones. They don't suck you in quite so bad (thus leaving you a chance of maintain an actual life). They run fast. And they are often very playable.

For example, "Bandit Kings of Ancient China" (as shown above) is chock full of characterisation, and has good enough strategy problems that it keeps me quite occupied.

And, of course, they're free.
