A loving recreation of the upload process on the Museum immortalized in ZZT just in time (hopefully) before a new upload system takes it place. When the queue is empty, I get a moment's respite. This is described as a "curse" apparently.

A very early in development Super ZZT card game. There's unfortunately so little here that you can't even begin to guess at how the game was planned to be played, but it makes nice use of Super ZZT's viewport to present its play area.
