A purely text game. You really need to know the book to play well IMHO.

A lot of these old text games only include the .dat or .z# file.
Since there are no executables for DOS, using http://nitfol.sourceforge.net/ will run them. (I have a multi-core CPU with Win7 Ultimate Edition, and it works fine.)
http://www.ifwiki.org/index.php/Category:Interpreter has a list of interpreters for other IF games, but I haven't used any others yet.
