Craig beat me to it. I've been using Quinn for a while now and it's great. Very handy when I'm bored in class ;)

When you are in Terminal, type this:

ls /usr/share/emacs/21.2/lisp/play

That will give you a list of the games.


To play the games, type in "emacs" (without the quotes), then press esc and x at the same time, then type in the name of the game you want to play.
