If you like computer games, here's a new one that's fun and educational. John Deere Publishing has produced Master of the Mountain, a new safety-awareness computer game.

The game keeps you alert to safety signals, tests your awareness of safety procedures and equipment and encourages you to become more safety conscious.

Multiple people can play this interactive game on one computer, with all players using the same keyboard. During the game, you must answer safety questions chosen at random from a bank of nearly 400 by touching keys as directed. The player with the most correct answers at the end is the winner.

The game is a fun and easy way to teach farm safety to your children and employees.

To play Master of the Mountain, you need a 486/33 mHz processor, Windows 3.x or higher, CD-ROM, sound card and color monitor. You also must have 3 MB free space available on your hard drive.
