5th Place - ADRIFT 2nd Three Hour Comp 2004
This is a faithful, yet minimal implementation of the board game of the same name. You play solo and may choose R (to roll 1-6), L (to roll low 1-3), or H (to roll high 4-6) at every turn. You are told via a six-character string of S's, L's, and underscores what the next six squares contain (snakes, ladders, or free space, respectively). And you have a "dice". That's pretty much it. Just type R, L, or H over and over until you win or decide to quit. Locations have no description, so it's a mostly empty experience.
The optional graphic is a picture of the game board, but it is not interactive; it does not display your current location in the game.

This was a very experimental board game implementation that I was persuaded to release in an Adrift minicomp.At the time I was more interested in the technicalities rather than implementing any serious gameplay.
