Q: Are there any games on Athena?


Athena does not officially support games. However, a number of individuals have contributed games to the games locker. To get a list of games, just type:

	add games


	ls /mit/games/$bindir

to get a list of the games available.

To play a game that you find, just type the name of the game, after you've done the "add games". You can also see whatever documentation that is available about a game by typing man gamename after you've typed the "add" command.

You can also find some games in the "softbone" locker – you can access them the same way as the ones in the "games" locker. You may report bugs, though, to "bug-games".

Finally, please be courteous to other users. If another student wishes to work at a workstation, and you are playing games, please yield your workstation to him or her.

Thanks, and have fun.
