The PDP-10 Timesharing World Series is one of the first games ever wrote with BASIC programming language. The game allows the user to simulate a game of baseball on the computer. The player’s input is limited to picking a random number between 1 and 1000 after which the game is played out. The two teams (Dodgers and Yankees) will bat it out. Based purely on chance the baseball players will hit singles, doubles or home runs, steal a base, be safe or out. Each event is printed to the screen and at the end a winner is announced.
Chess is a chess game on the CDC 6600 computer. The program was continuously iterated on and knew many versions which became progressively better. The game won the ACM North American Computer Chess Championships eight times and the second WCCC in Toronto in 1977.
