I don't believe it would work, even if the player on the other side isn't using a computer, what's to say he/she isn't getting advice from other people? If they were doing that, it would be easy to put commentary in on how and why a move is a good one. I wouldn't agree to such a game, for the reasons that John Lawson and Michael Howe wrote below. A game is just that, a game. It's meant to be fun, not to be a chore. And would anyone really want to give their opponent an opportunity to view the thinking behind each move? You cannot be 100% certain that your encrypted ZIP file is unbreakable. If you're concerned that your opponent is using a computer, would you not also worry they could crack your password/encryption?
