- What makes an instruction set architecture fun?

I'm designing and building a CPU from scratch. What should I put in the instruction set to make it interesting? Present design has a 12-bit word, and 8 registers, one of which is the program counter.
- It has to be actually useful
- I have to be able to justify it to my partner, who wants to write Forth on this machine.
