Anybody tried explaining SST or even tradewars to
the younger crowd? My 17 y/o was baffled.

It turns into quite an exercise, trying to lay it out
before their eyes glaze over.

I have.

Showed my 12-year-old son Tradewars and it didn't take 2mins before he realized there were no graphics and lost all interest. It was like suggesting a book over a Movie.
