Have a free "Smash the Altair!" day whereby people take swings at an
Altair 8800 suspended from a wire. It can be a political statement about
the soaring values of old computers. Of course, in the process you'll be
promoting the higher prices since you'll be having to refill your stocks
of old Altairs from eBay.


Beyond that, games always grab your imagination. Run old versions of
Hammurabi, Hunt the Wumpus, etc.
