This is a quality egg if I ever saw one. I just downloaded OpenOffice on the recommendation of my dad and after using it, experience told me, "there has to be an egg in here." So I checked and I found it.

@ Boris =GAME(A2:C4;"TicTacToe") is a TicToeGame (works in A1 cell only) =TTT() does random smileys =STARCALCTEAM() shows photo of developers In the help menu as well, click on About OpenOffice.org then while the about window is displayed, hold CTRL and type SDT for scrolling credits of the developers. (This works in the help menu of any OpenOffice.org apps). @ jackfusion It means, after you've closed everything, open it up again and repeat the same formula.

This easter-egg doesn't work here (on Debian Etch). It only shows "say what?", but doesn't start the game, no matter if I type only =GAME() or =GAME("Star Wars") or even dismiss the last ")" charakter (which is anyway being added automatically)... So, what am I doing wrong?

It only worked for me when I accidentally left off the last parenthese. Correct way: =game("StarWars"
