Can I install packages from the Slack CDs?

I already installed Slack, and opted to NOT install KDE or Gnome, but now I want just the games from the 2. I don't have the computer on the internet, so that's not an option. Can I do this (if so, how)?

Oh cool! What about dependent packages? Will Slack automagically get those too?
