Are you saying there isn't a Games menu item on the main menu? If so select Cassandra --> Preferences --> Main Menu and check Games.

Sorry if this is not what you mean; it's either a pre-coffee thing for me, or your question/post isn't clear. :)

If instead you are asking why the games aren't already pre-loaded ... I would suggest it is a good way of keeping the live cd down to cd -vs- dvd size.

Thankyou "newW2",what I meant was,when I first looked for the Games menu under "All Applications" it was not there,after installing "Gnome-games" from Synaptic package manager the "Games menu appeared under "All Applications. Thankyou for the tip for,"Cassandra->Preferences->Main menu",perhaps I should have done that in the first place.
Yes I agree with you that the reason for not loading "Games" is to keep down the size of the install.
