ANTIC Interview 306 – Dan Reinhart, Yahtman

Dan Reinhart, Yahtman Dan Reinhart published one program for the Atari 8-bit computers: Yahtman, a Yahtzee-style game that was published by Atari Program Exchange. Yahtman first appeared in the winter 1982-1983 APX catalog. This interview took place on August 28, 2017. In it, we discuss Paul Cubbage, whom I previously interviewed. “Paul [Cubbage] had said, ‘You know, you have good potential at this sort of thing but you really need to choose: are you going to keep building earth movers and equipment? Or do you want to live in programming and doing games?’ … And as it turns out, I chickened out.” Download Yahtman from Atarimania Yahtman in the winter 1982-1983 APX catalog Paul Cubbage interview
