Lemonade stand An economic game. At fisrt it was a text mode game.

In the game you play as a grade school tycoon who sets up a cutthroat curbside lemonade shop made out of cardboard (ok, maybe Iím reading too much into this), and you have to decide how to control inventory, set your prices, and advertise based on weather conditions. The gameplay is entirely text-based, aside from the rare weather report screen, but it is surprisingly addictive. I suddenly find myself getting very thirsty.
