        Subject: games meet computing?

I would be very grateful for recommendations of sources for the history 
of game-playing in the early decades of computing. I am particularly 
interested in histories that look at the confluence of the two rather 
than implementation and development of computer games. This confluence 
is in a sense utterly obvious -- one form of rule-governed behaviour 
meeing a rule-governing machine. But what is *not* so obvious about this 
meeting? How did each affect the other?

Thanks very much for any guidance.
