At my day job I am on a team with several programmers. Only a few of them have any real Perl experience, but because of history, inertia and corporate rules, Perl is our language of choice for our activities. I'm looking for something fun that I can get these guys doing that will sharpen their perl skills. If it was java, I would start a RoboCode tournement. Are there any games that get people programming in Perl? I did some simple googling and didn't see anything, so I though I would ask here. Any thoughts? Obfuscation contests don't count, I'm trying to get these guys to write solid, readable code!
