play Battleship using VisiCalc
- I still get a kick out of this for some reason...
Dan Bricklin will allow you to download a fully functional MSDOS
executable of VisiCalc from his web site. It's from 1981 and weighs
in at a "whopping" 27,520 bytes:
So today while cleaning up, I found an old "SpreadSheet" newsletter,
(issue 13, Nov/Dec 1982 from "The International Electronic SpreadSheet User's
Group"). On pages 8 and 9, there's a spreadsheet to play Battleship (really!).
I spent about an hour typing it in and debugging it.
It will work with the executable above, feel free to download and enjoy:
