I stumbled upon this when browsing around this morning. Don't remember how much time I wasted in high school and college playing, but it doesn't seem so bad in comparison now.
Linky and another linky.
I remember a couple of games I had that got locked in some kind of long-term stalemate, but nothing to this degree of course. Having the urge to reload the game at some point now. Those disks are sitting around somewhere.
