Question looking for a link to an old online set of games

I've seen it posted a couple of places over the years, but cannot now remember the name and google has not been my friend in trying to find it again ... Does anyone remember a downloadable set of small games, like 12-15 single-player games, called "somebody-or-other's favorite games"? It included a 4-color map game, a finish-the-electric-circuit game, some block-moving games I couldn't figure out, a crossed-line net-pulling game, and so on? I feel :dopey: that I can't remember ... :scratch:

I know exactly what you're talking about. I may have something somewhere but it'll take me time to find it.

Dear lisarea, one of my combat boot socks went missing from the drawer, leaving me with an odd number of them. Can you tell me where the missing sock is?

I was hiding socks AND making brownies. :highfive:

(I remembered that game set, so I just searched Synaptic for puzzle games and refound it is all.)

Aha! :detect: That's IT! :idea2: I was almost going to say "Simon somebody," but whenever I was searching for Simon on Google, all I got was "Simon Says"

:thankyou:

A new type of Loopy puzzle has been recently added - the 4x5 Compass-Dodecagonal - Hard

It's no harder than the other dodecagonal loopy puzzles in my experience - usually possible to solve first try and with no, or very little, guessing-and-backtracking.

I'm surprised it wasn't in Yakima, Washington. Missing socks usually end up there.
