Yes, it's a game, and a lightweight game and a knockoff at that. But the creativity with which the experiments have responded to one another is real. We would love to see more of this kind of thing happen on Hacker News; in my mind, it's what it was made for. If HN could be a hotbed for such experiments and improvisation, who knows what might become of it.
It makes me incredibly happy (and proud, if that makes sense) to see random family members and friends, definitely not HN geeks, playing this game. E.g. my Aunt.
