The best game of all time?

Itís tremendously addictive. It takes a lifetime to master. And people play it for decades without completing it. Welcome to the strange world of NetHackÖ

I've never heard of Rogue Class. My ten year old nephew likes NetHack too we play it on an old IBM T20 (thrift store $15) I keep Debian-Sid text only but now I may have to set it up for dual-boot... it runs GUI well enough.
Thanks.

How neat! I would like to read how it treats you and your nephew.

RCL has 3 flavors of NetHack:
* Original
* Slashem
* Unnethack

DCSS and PRIME also have gameplay reminescent of NetHack. Their respective pages tell how to switch to ASCII mode, which may help them run faster on older computers such as the T20.

RCL takes a whole disk, but you can install it to a USB thumb drive and boot off that. Just be careful to back up the main disk in case the installation runs amuck.

Happy Hack-and-slashing!

I will have to wait until after Xmas to splurge on CD-RWs, I find I still need and want them for distros and data even tho just got a 50 pack of Blu-Ray-RWs.
