Gem Drop X is an interesting one-player puzzle game for X11
The game is played with YOU at the bottom of the screen. At the top is a random assortment of colored shapes ("gems"). As time goes on, more gems appear at the very top of the screen, pushing the rest downwards. The game is over when the gems reach the bottom. . It's your job to keep the screen from filling up. You do this by "grabbing" gems from the top of the screen, carrying them around, if need be, and "throwing" them back up. . If, when you throw some gems back up, you create a "match" of 3 or more gems in a vertical column, they disappear (with a cool little explosion). At this point, if there are any "matches" of the same gem to the left or right of this column, they disappear too! And so on. This is great for cool chain-reactions! You also get more points for the more gems that disappear in a match. (Matching four gives as many points as matching three twice, for example.)
UFO: Alien Invasion -- build your team and stop the aliens
UFO: Alien Invasion is a squad-based tactical strategy game in the tradition of the old X-COM PC games. It combines military realism with hard science-fiction and the weirdness of an alien invasion. The carefully constructed turn-based system gives you pin-point control of your squad while maintaining a sense of pace and danger. . UFO:AI has two main modes of play: Geoscape mode and Tactical mode. . In Geoscape mode you manage the activities and finances of PHALANX, a secret organisation charged with defending Earth from a brutal alien enemy. You control bases, installations, aircraft and squads of armed-response troops. You will research new technologies and use their results in battle against the aliens. You can build, buy and produce anything you like, as long as your technology level and your budget will allow it. Easy-to-use time buttons make it possible to control the passage of time. . In Tactical mode the game is about taking command of your team in various missions to combat the aliens wherever they might appear. Tactical mode uses a turn-based system, where your team and the aliens take turns to make moves. You can order your troops around, fire their weapons, throw grenades and use other equipment. All actions require Time Units to perform. Once a soldier is out of Time Units, he or she can't do anything more until the next turn. Your mission objectives will vary for each mission and there are many to perform as the aliens' terrifying plot unfolds. You'll have to watch your back, be quick on your feet and take the fight to them. . If you don't, humanity is doomed.
play the game of Go
GNU Go is a free program that plays the game of Go. It provides a text-only user interface, have a look at the cgoban or qgo package if you want to play on a graphical board. . Go is an ancient game originated from China, with a definite history of over 3000 years, although there are historians who say that the game was invented more than 4000 years ago. The Chinese call the game Weiqi, other names for Go include Baduk (Korean), Igo (Japanese), and Goe (Taiwanese). . In this game, each player tries to exert more influence on territory than her opponent, using threats of death, capture, or isolation. It is, therefore, a symbolic representation of the relationships between nations. Go is getting increasingly popular around the world, especially in Asian, European and American countries, with many worldwide competitions being held. . The game of Go is played on a board. The Go set is comprised of the board, together with 181 black and 180 white stones. The standard board has 19 lines by 19 lines, but 13x13 and 9x9 boards can also be used. However, the 9x9 and 13x13 boards are usually for beginners; more advanced players would prefer the traditional 19x19 board. . Compared to International Chess and Chinese Chess, Go has far fewer rules. Yet this allowed for all sorts of moves to be played, so Go can be a more intellectually challenging game than the other two types of Chess. Nonetheless, Go is not a difficult game to learn, so have a fun time playing the game with your friends. . (adopted from http://senseis.xmp.net/?WhatIsGo)
