I think the board game “C-jump” is worth taking note of. It’s a board game like any other. You roll some die, you move some pieces and somebody wins. What’s different about this one, that makes it worthy of inclusion in the LD world; the rules consist of computer codes like Java or C++.
The games creator, Igor, was a computer programmer who wanted to teach his son about what he did. So after several years he developed the game C-jump, which he says is fun and helps kids learn the basics of computer programing.
I think it’s interesting to see where computer related culture spreads. Here we have a board game based on teaching kids computer programing. What’s next, a square night light which gives off the glow of an ever changing screen saver?
