Number (game)

Number (game)

"Number" is an early 1970s text-based computer game for BASIC designed by People's Computer Company in which one must guess a number from one to 100, which the computer is "thinking of." The game appeared on page 2 of the book "What to Do After You Hit Return or P.C.C.'s First Book of Computer Games".

Trivia

It is possible to always win the game in at most 7 guesses.
