Hunt the Wumpus was an early game often found on Unix systems. You can relive those days of old in various places:

I remember spending hours on this game on my TI 99/4a PC. Maybe I will see how good I am now..

I never played wumpus but I do recall it being on some of the systems I encountered back when Jimmy Carter was being attacked by rabbits while fishing. <Smile>

I never was one for playing computer games. Getting the machine to do what I wanted was enough of a challenge.
