Back in the days of MS DOS, Nancy had a particular affinity for the Rube Goldberg-inspired game “The Incredible Machine”: “There were all these different elements that you could arrange in space, and they would float. And then you would push “GO” and gravity would take place. So, you could construct a ball to hit a teeter-totter to light a match. I remember the end was always some morbid thing, like to make the boy fall off the ledge, or the boy would be burned with a candle or eaten by alligators. Oh my god, if I could play it now. And I remember specifically setting it up and calling Kim over, and she would come and we would watch it together.”
