My favorite one is a simple guessing game, where the computer "thinks" of a
number 1-10 (inclusive) and then the user guesses the number, with the
computer responding "Too High" or "Too low!".

For more variation, keeping "score" - number of guesses, # of rounds played,
etc. are fun additions to the program.
