Not sure this should be called a "game" as in Information Literacy Game and "Play the game". It was definitely a tutorial. Not sure who the audience is, since it is housed in the Library Department. Perhaps this is a self-serving tutorial for students who go to the library for a better knowledge of Office products. The tutorial is for Office 2000 which is WAY WAY OUTDATED, since Office is now version 2007. So again, I'm not sure how useful this is and for what student.

Technical Remarks:

I found a few misspellings (i.e. "roll the die", should be dice). Someone put a lot of effort into this tutorial game, but it would be hard for one person without help to navigate the game and all its parts.
