Hi Victoria
A (somewhat belated) warm welcome to the forum...
I suggest to install Wine and install these games on should be in the repo, or, enter this in the console:
sudo apt-get install wine
if I'm not mistaken...of course, Synaptic is nicer to use...enter "wine" as search term, checkmark it and go!
An other way is to install VirtualBox (should be in the repo as well) and install your (legal) version of ***dows and...then install the games there...
I tried that once, this...does work....
Good luck, and happy gaming
