I'm trying to find the title of an old PC game

I want to say I played this game around age 12 or 13, so that would be right around 1990 or so. It was a computer game where you played a character in charge of a group of people who are sent back through time to prevent the assassination of John F. Kennedy. [more inside]

How to plan a trip for a game demo?

I'm the co-creator of a new party game and my co-creators and I are stationed out of Madison. We've been invited to demo the game by an enthusiastic game store owner a few towns away, and so we've been wondering whether it makes sense to arrange a tour of the area metropolises (Minneapolis, Milwaukee, maybe Chicago). We're ramping up to the Christmas shopping season, and the game is going to start appearing at Barnes & Nobles soon, so on the one hand it seems like if we arrange something in advance with a store and simply show up there on the scheduled weekend, there's going to be a crowd, and we can try to attract shoppers' attention. But we can also perceive such a tour where we've planned it terribly, there's no store traffic and we've squandered our time and money. So: How to plan such a trip? [more inside]

Identify this dice game (+ German regional word variation)

Do you know the dice game that goes by the names "10000", "dadi a mano" or "nusht"? My friend learned it from his Canadian Mennonite family and said that nusht is low German for "nicht." Anyway, I digress. Do you know the game? What do you call it? Do your rules vary?
