Arduino LCD: Nicomachus

This is a game that is a simple "guess your number" game based on an algorithm published in 90AD. Think of a number between 1 and 100 then answer three questions about it. The original BASIC game is by David Ahl.

This was a pretty quick conversion. I cut much of the flavour text - including a taunt to recheck your arithmetic if you disagreed with Nicomachus' answer. Having said that, I was surprised at how often people would get a remainder wrong during testing. Maybe the taunt should've stayed. If you'd like to play a more faithful conversion then try my online playable version of Nicomachus.
