Have you had a look in the Software Manager?

Where did you hear about this game, and what sort of game is it? "Port" is a very generic name to be searched for.

I tend to read the Mint forum regularly and I remember seeing it referred to as port1 and port2. I am sorry about my short term memory loss (sadly I have some brain damage which causes some memory loss) and all I can say is that it sounded well worth playing. I truly wish that I could offer more info. However I do appreciate any and all assistance.

The problem is that "port" is quite generic and could refer to the port of a game over to Linux i.e. it existed on another platform and then was rewritten to allow it to work on Linux. Can you remember what sort of a game it was? Board game, quiz game, 1st person shooter, etc.?
