Atomix is an educational game designed for GNOME in which one has to build molecules, ranging from simple inorganic ones to some extremely complex organic ones, out of separate atoms.

The first levels can be rather easy, but added complexity always comes with the next level, so that several minutes (or much longer than that) can be spent on each single level.

Blinken is based on an electronic game released in 1978, which challenges players to remember sequences of increasing length. On the face of the device, there are 4 different color buttons, each with its own distinctive sound. These buttons light up randomly, creating the sequence that the player must then recall. If the player is successful in remembering the sequence of lights in the correct order, they advance to the next stage, where an identical sequence with one extra step is presented.

This package is part of the KDE education module.

CGoban (Complete Goban) is a computerized board on which you can play the game of Go against another player, view and edit smart-go files, and connect to Go servers on the internet. It can also interface with computer Go programs such as GNU Go that speak the Go modem protocol. Some sort of image converter is needed if you wish to use the utility provided to capture "screen shots" of a CGoban game.

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.

GNU Go는 바둑을 경기할 수 있는 자유 프로그램입니다, 이 프로그램은 텍스트 기 반 사용자 인터페이스만을 제공합니다. Gui 기반의 프로그램을 찾는다면 cgoban 또는 qgo 꾸러미를 보기 바랍니다.

바둑은 중국에서 시작된, 3000년 이상의 역사를 가진 오래된 게임입니다. 바둑 게임이 나온지 4000년이상 됐다고 말하는 역사가도 있습니다. 이 게임을 중국에 서는 Weiqi, 한국에서는 Baduk, 일본에서는 lgo, 그리고 태국에서는 Goe라고 부 릅니다.

바둑에서, 각 플레이어는 죽음, 포로, 또는 고립의 위협을 사용해서 상대편보다 더 많은 세력을 차지하려 합니다. 그래서 이 게임은 나라 사이의 관계를 상징적 으로 나타낸다고 볼 수 있습니다. 바둑은 많은 세계 대회 개최로, 특히 아시아, 유럽, 미국을 중심으로 그 인기가 세계적으로 증가하고 있습니다.

바둑은 보드게임입니다, 바둑은 181개의 흑돌과 180개의 백돌 그리고 바둑판으로 이루어집니다. 표준 바둑 판은 19x19로 이루어졌습니다, 그러나 13x13 및 9x9 바 둑판도 사용됩니다. 그렇지만 9x9 및 13x13은 초보자용으로 사용됩니다. 바둑에 능숙한 플레이어는 19x19 바둑판을 사용합니다.

체스와 장기(중국 체스)하고 비교하면, 바둑이 다른 두 체스 게임보다 규칙이 훨 씬 적습니다. 그렇지만 바둑은 어디로든 움직일 수 있으며, 그래서 바둑은 다른 두 게임보다 지적으로 더 흥미있습니다. 그럼에도 바둑은 배우는데 어렵지 않아, 쉽게 동료들과 게임을 하며 재미난 시간을 보낼 수 있습니다.

XBoard is a graphical chessboard that can serve as a user interface for chess programs, for the Internet Chess Server, or for electronic mail correspondence chess. It supports all major forms of chess, such as international chess, xiangqi and shogi. XBoard can also be used by itself as viewer for stored chess games.

XBoard uses the Helvetica font (located in the xfonts-75dpi and xfonts-100dpi packages) by default. However, other fonts can be specified via a command line option or an X resource.

The package is enhanced by the following packages: hachu phalanx

Crafty is the strong chess program played on ICC. It uses all of the search algorithms you have probably read about and performs better than gnu-chess in most positions. It has a reasonable set of features to use, and offers a great starting point to try your own new search extensions.
