Great Computer Program

Are you familiar with a program called How the West Was 1+3 x 4

It is totally about order of operation. Using it, two people ,or one playing against the computer, take on the icon of a stagecoach or a ____ (train, I think). By using the 3 random numbers given they race to the finish line. If they can land on certain numbers, they can take a shortcut. The game has +,-, X, and divide along with ( ), so it is a great game.

I am a retired teacher who had ten copies of this program. I brought one home with me since I paid for them myself. I would be glad to mail this one to you at the school address or another address you choose. I tried to send you a PM, but you haven't been on long enough to have that option. I have only the one copy and cannot send to others who would like it.
