    The first game of Turf was played at Yale University in January through March, 2007. Called Old Campus Tree Risk at the time, it was a strategy game and would-be art piece, where the board was the freshman quad, each building was a team, every student could be a player, and trees flew with banners reflecting the state of the game. The game was a tremendous success: 62% of undergraduates — 3300 people — played. The code was released open-source, and Harvard ran a thrilling game a few weeks later: alliance, betrayal, hacking, bribery, and several Youtube videos all ensued.
