  Sounds interesting. Though YaBasic would probably suffice for a 
near 1:1 translation. I'm sure most of the games would be fairly 
simple. Tic-tac-toe, guess a number from 1-100, hangman, etc.

  The original BASIC games *probably* didn't understand graphics 
and the minimal MS-BASIC all the games shared mostly re-printed 
everything when something updated. (*which is also how the Apple 
1 machine worked too*).

  Also the magic of the book wasn't the games. It was you writing 
it in yourself, and in the process you'd teach yourself how to do 

  Regardless it might be fun to do a re-write of some of them. 
Though if all 101 games are being re-written for every language 
or some languages I'm not sure on.
