Around 1995 I played a game on the Mac in school that was for educational purposes, supposedly for the purposes of drilling math skills, and had Mozart Symphony no. 40 (1st movement and but I think 3rd as well), Bach BWV 999, and possibly some Paganini as well, as background music. Do you know what it was?

What is the modern equivalent of 1995's lovely LOGICAL JOURNEY OF THE ZOOMBINIS computer games? They taught math logic skills rather neatly for children, but I don't have a computer that will run the old games.

Please point me to the most layman-accessible educational material on this subject, and help me to help myself. [more inside]

This is regards to the Mob Wars game on Facebook, specifically the 'City' mechanic. It seems to be assumed that there is no benefit in investing in 'land' vs. 'buildings'. I want to know if that is valid. [more inside]
