There is a game mechanic in creating bash scripts.

A card that represents an input.
A card that represents a desired output.
A hand of cards that represent programs that work on an input and produce output.
Players go around the table playing programs and altering the input to try and create the desired output.

Or something like that, I dunno just an idea.

@jameschip Maybe could be adapted from something like Century: The Spice Road. A bit of engine building using cards, producing simple cubes and turning them into advanced cubes to buy more cards.

@jameschip This sounds like just translating all the visual programming video games and physical toys into cards.

@jameschip That doesn't make it a bad idea. :) Just that you could probably look to those examples to see how they approached it.
