I voted TuxRacer, but I don't use it. TuxRacer isn't in development anymore so I use the derivative PlanetPenguin Racer which has lots of new features like support for higher screen resolution.

I also like cube, wesnoth, kspaceduel, kbounce, frozen-bubble and enemy-territory.

Of these limited selections, Frozen Bubble. If the choices were a bit broader; then qGo would be my pick.

Armagetronad is one of the best. Crafty with either Knights or Eboard is also a winning combination.

BZFLAG! This game is awesome and can be played on a 600Mhz comp with limited or no 3D acceleration! Capture the flag, free for all, and rabbit hunt!

I am really dissapointed that TA spring is not on the list. I voted for Frozen Bubble. Cool game.

Frozen Bubble and SuperTux I play about equally, but I go with Frozen Bubble, just because it's so addictive and challenging.

Personally I'm into online chess these days but I have a friend addicted to gtkballs. I'd like to place an out of poll vote for Search and Rescue.
