+Description
+===========
+
+Some simple command line games created with Lisp, so that I would have some hands-on experience writing my own, since [Land of Lisp](http://landoflisp.com/) is mostly about reading Barski's Lisp.
+
+I got the ideas for these games from [this](http://www.visualnews.com/2010/11/13/computer-games-you-can-program-yourself/) scan of an 80s game magazine.
+
+Games
+-----
+
+* **Diamonds** Prints out a series of diamonds
+* **Dice** Rolls dice, tracking results, and displaying the distribution
+* **hilo** The computer guesses a number in 1..100, you have 6 tries to guess it
+* **literature-quiz** You can put problems into it, it will then quiz you to see whether you know the answers
+* **russian-roulette** There's a 5 in 6 chance you'll survive the round. You get 10 rounds :P
+
+
+Usage
+=====
+
+* **Diamonds** `$ clisp diamonds.lisp`
+* **Dice** `$ clisp dice.lisp`
+* **hilo** `$ clisp hilo.lisp`
+* **literature-quiz** `$ clisp quiz.lisp`
+* **russian-roulette** `$ clisp russian-roulette.lisp`
