Duke coachbot Mike Krzyzewski has released an iPhone game that is equal parts basketball skills and dragon avoidance. The introduction appears to be missing a frame or 1,500.

Using Krzyzewski-approved coaching skills, players will dodge various nouns and travel to various proper nouns. But don't rush off to your nearest iTunes store just yet — the game is a devious ploy to get you learning. Learning "about the unique geography and cultures of some of the most interesting cities in the world" (as far as Coach K is concerned). I will stick to Paper Toss and Unblock Me, thank you very much.
