My favorite video game as a teenager was Hero Quest, a simplified version of fantasy miniatures games like Warhammer 40k (Games Workshop) - then often available on closeout for cheap. Its fantasy adventures had elements of D&D, miniatures gaming, and video gaming.

I hadn't realized that there was also another related game, Space Crusade. The board game version of Alien/Aliens!

This animation program for the Apple IIe was a big part of my childhood -- especially because we didn't get a PC until well into the 90s.

Shared on Twitter with the notes:

"A group of people mercilessly oppressed for centuries, for no real discernible reason."
"Europeans: so racist that when we don’t have any ethnic minorities we’ll just sort of invent one to be racist to."

In 1978, Mac Davis did a holiday special for NBC, "Christmas Odyssey 2010" with Bernadette Peters and Ted Knight. I'm told it had a "Star Wars Holiday Special" kind of feel, celebrating "Commerce Day" with "Christmas" outlawed. I wonder if it could be found.
