WarGames

One of my favorite scenes from WarGames is after Joshua guesses the launch code and then decides “the winning move is not to play”. I decided to make a fun Go program that guesses the launch code and then interacts with the user as Falken does in the movie. You can find it here. I think the way it simulates guessing the launch code is actually really great as it’s very similar looking to the movie. There’s a goroutine for each character of the launch code.
