Gnome Games description
Gnome Games is a collection of games for the GNOME desktop. There are sixteen games including card games, puzzle games, and arcade games.

These games are designed to be simple but addictive ?" five minute games for when you need a break. Regretfully we cannot be held responsible for the resulting loss of productivity.

Here are some key features of "Gnome Games":

Aisleriot

- A compilation of seventy different solitaire card games. Everything from favorites like Freecell and Klondike through to the hopelessly pointless Clock Patience.

Ataxx

- A strategy game where you try and dominate the board by replacing your opponents pieces with your own. The evil twin of Iagno, which is also part of Gnome Games.

Blackjack

- The casino card game without any need to actually pay your gambling debts.

Four-in-a-row

- Place disks one at a time and try to form a row of four. Tic-tac-toe for those who like to think.

Gnometris

- The Russian game of falling geometric shapes. Need I say more ?

Iagno

- The GNOME version of Reversi. The goal is to control the most disks on the board.

Klotski

- A series of sliding block puzzles. Try and solve them in the least number of moves.

Lines

- Move balls around the grid and try and form lines. Once you form five in a row, the line disappears. Unfortunately more balls keep dropping in.

Mahjongg

- A tile-based solitaire game with an oriental flavor. Remove tiles in matching pairs to dismantle elaborately designed stacks.

Mines

- The popular logic puzzle minesweeper. Find mines on a grid using hints from squares you have already cleared.

Nibbles

- Pilot a worm around a maze trying to collect diamonds and at the same time avoiding the walls and yourself. With each diamond your worm grows longer and navigation becomes more and more difficult. Playable by up to four people.

Robots

- The classic robots game where you have to avoid a hoard of robots who are trying to kill you. Each step you take brings them closer toward you. Fortunately they aren't very smart and you also have a helpful teleportation gadget.

Same GNOME

-"I want to play that game! You know, they all go whirly-round and you click on them and they vanish!" - Telsa.

Stones

- Mine through dirt and collect gems, but don't get squashed by the boulders. Classic Atari-style side-scrolling arcade action. It also has a Sokoban mode.

Tali

- Sort of poker with dice and less money. An ancient Roman game, this variant is similar to Yahtzee.

Tetravex

- A puzzle game where you have to match a grid of tiles together. The skill level ranges from the simple two by two up to the seriously mind-bending six by six grid.. . live.gnome.org is a collaborative web space for GNOME users and developers.
