A text adventure with random variations. The fantasy nature of the storyline requires a degree of lateral thinking and possibly some crazy thinking. Was included on a computer magazine disk in the 1980s. It was written by Graham Cluley, who is now a well-recognised computer security blogger and speaker.

I have gone from playing his game to receiving his daily security email.
