Dark Tower was an early electronic game; after each move, players input their choice into a small keypad which would take over such tasks as keeping track of dwindling resources or deciding the outcomes of battles. Though somewhat primitive now, at the time it was a step forward for boardgames in that a computer could do much of the more tedious mental tasks.
