Back in the 80's there was a boardgame that used a personal computer as a component. I seem to recall the computer being either an Apple ][ e or Commodore 64.

The game included a game board to move your pieces on, but all random elements were resolved by the computer.

I would like to identify what the name of this game was (and hopefully find images, screenshots or other information about it).

Help me BGG community, you're my only hope.

Can you remember anything else about the game? Theme? Goal? Art?

The Quest for the Rings?

Note: the "computer" for this one was an Odyssey².

Avalon Hill had Dniepr River Line...a traditional board wargame that used a Commadore 64 to play the opponent.

Star Saga: One – Beyond The Boundary? Although there were only a few tokens to place on the map for marking the player's positions.

I want to say medieval themed with catapults and jousting.
I recall comparing it to Defender of the crown.
It included a 5.25" floppy.
