OK, so I introduced my wife to Frozen Bubble as a way to encourage her to boot into the Ubuntu partition occasionally. For a while she was so hooked on the game that I started accusing her of acting like Penny on the Big Bang Theory episode ("The Barbarian Sublimation") where Penny gets addicted to gaming and assumes the on-line persona of "Princess Penelope".

Currently my favorite Linux game is Maelstrom, but I agree that Frozen Bubble is a great game, and hard to quit once you start moving through the levels.

I still miss the Spacewar game that we played on the SDS Sigma Seven at the MSU Cyclotron Lab!
