And of course there were randomly generated events and reactions represented
by dice rolls in role-playing and war games, as well as Strat-O-Matic
Baseball and others.  Taking a look at how RPGs [role-playing games] became
CRPGs [computerized role-playing games], for instance, is one way to see
explicit, though simple, systems becoming computerized.
