Adam, I'll risk my ignorance of this particular 1970's board game, to 
speak up. Without going on about the history of board games; There were 
any number of "computer" card-game or board-game products in the 1970's 
and 80's, also earlier - why is this one any better than any other? Why 
is this worth $300? I'm not a game-collector, and I certainly don't take 
an eBay description at face value. But I know FORTRAN, and I don't see 
much "FORTRAN" about this game, from the eBay auction photos.

I dont' want to give Adam a hard time, if he was simply excited to see 
such a thing and was sharing his excitement. But I'm left confused by 
statement like "we really need this... this is a real thing". Does the 
VCFed Museum now solicit board-games about computers? If so the local 
thrift stores will produce them; please provide some guidance if you 
want donations. Do not pass GO, do not pay $300.
