Games to play
right away

This section originally offered a selection of interactive games programmed by Eric Solomon using the Java platform. They are in course of redevelopment and won't be back for a while, but I will soon be presenting some simple board and pencil-and-paper games. Meanwhile, you will find a variety of word games in, appropriately enough, the word games section.

Here are two to start with:

Knightcap A knightly tussle for two on a chessboard.
Numbo A nim-like pencil-and-paper game for two.
