Depending on how your sister implements it, the project could teach basic game theory, recursion, a-b pruning, and other advanced (for high school, and somewhat for early college) topics. Show the teacher some of the classic literature, and how even something as "simple" as the Missionaries and cannibals problem can be mapped into the same problem space.

Perhaps the game is not the way to present it to the teacher, but the way the game is solved.

[Corion]: jthebarg: There is the switch keyword if you want that, but maybe a dispatch table is closer.
[Corion]: If by "case" you meant "case-insensitive ", see fc, uc and lc and perlop on the /i flag ;)

[virtualsue]: I recommended dbic-migration even though I am having trouble with it this week. It might be my fault.
[ambrus]: wow! I haven't seen you here for a long time, virtualsue
virtualsue waves back
[Eily]: it would have been 2 years in 2 weeks actually. And welcome back virtualsue :)
