6.21 Small games

Many small games are probably installed on your system. Here is just a sample that installed from my standard Linux distribution CD.


(in X terminal) Patience card game. sol (fast) and pysol (slow but loaded) are two other choices. My favourite is: sol --variation=freecell&


(in X terminal). Very nice, pin-ball game.


(in X terminal) Chess. Plays too well for me :(

konquest &

(in X terminal) Compete with your son in a conquest of a galaxy. Nice board game.


(in X terminal) Minesweeper.



(in X terminal) Startup server for the FreeCivilization game (first command). Afterwards, when the server is already running, start up the client (second comamand). Somebody else starts another client--and you play. FreeCiv came on my RH7.0 CDs.


"Flight Gear" flight simulator.
