The game "Empire" - a UNIX-graphics based economy/war game - massive, online and ongoing - nearly killed an entire two years at the University of Chicago. I had to keep explaining that "W"s on the report card stood for "WOW - we don't even have a grade that we can assign to such an outstanding student" and that "I"s were "INCREDIBLE - no letter could possibly correspond to this grade!

Needless to say, the parents weren't too "I"mpressed. :)
