Go on an adventure in your Linux terminal - How to play Colossal Cave Adventure in the terminal

Colossal Cave Adventure (often just called Adventure), is a text-based game from the 1970s that gave rise to the entire adventure game genre. Despite its age, Adventure is still an easy way to lose hours as you explore a fantasy world, much like a Dungeons and Dragons dungeon master might lead you through an imaginary place.

I remember a caves game from my HP-41CV days where it was called Hunt the Wumpus I think. This would ahve been around 1982 or 1983.
