Obama Stimulus Rendered in Retro Math Game Style

2P Start takes note of President Obama’s recently-passed stimulus package by invoking the graphic style of the old Number Munchers game (perhaps some GP readers played it in school).

The artist explains:

I kind of get the feeling this comic might appeal more to The Oregon Trail crowd… Number Munchers was another early educational PC game that a lot of us probably played in elementary school…


In any event, we’re not trying to spark a political debate here, it’s just that $787 billion is a staggering number, even for an old pro like Muncher!

    Remember this game? I used to own the game. I think I may still have it buried somewhere although in all likelyhood we probably gave it away to somone.

    I can’t even remember the rules though.


    Debates are like merry go rounds. Two people take their positions then they go through the same points over and over and over again. Then when it’s over they have the same positions they started in.

    Oh Number Munchers!

    I talked about Number Munchers in my grad school application essays. What a good idea, I’m all nostalgic already and I haven’t even played it yet.
