Keep things separate
I would not have thought so deeply into simple games like this man. I mean it's supposed to be for enjoyment and the competitive edge on it is of course a big part of the game experience, but I think that we need to be objective in segregating what and how each things works in the end..

Good points all
But you missed THE GAME of them all - Chess of course.  Looking 5 moves ahead is always hard and a logic challenge.  Not all are good at it and I have learned only to play with humans.  IF you play online, it works with humans but NOT with a computer.  THEY can out-think anything and that works for AI intelligence too.  Computers can analyze 5 steps or more in advance and quickly too while we humans ponder and think.  While good, we also make mistakes.   (I made a dandy one this morning on Monday to start the day off with a horror).   Second, you play to block in the power players or avoid the QUEEN who can kill everything at will.   (Power of women, thank you!)   Third, the King (read that C-Suite) can do almost nothing save move 1 square at a time.  (Also Board of directors).    Now onward to ZORK and DOOM!!!

On DOOM- at a MicroAge dealership we often had children playing that and good life lesson - RUN AWAY FROM THE MONSTER.  And use the BFG9000 to solve all problems.
