I am echoing this message from another mailing list I am on which actually 
has nothing to do with the CoCo or BASIC programming, but one particular 
user is into writing Text Adventure games and shares some of his news 

I thought it would be interesting to see if one of our own CoCo BASIC 
experts here could show him up on this contest.
