_How the West was One + Three x Four_ is a board game in the vein of _Chutes
and Ladders_ with an educational twist. Instead of throwing dice players get a
random selection of 3 numbers and must use them all in a mathematical equation
to determine how many spaces they advance on the board. When a player lands on
the same place as another that player is bumped back to the beginning. There
are also some shortcuts on the the track, which ensure the highest possible
calculation isn’t necessarily the best move.
The Apple II version allows for two difficulty settings for the computer.
