Here are two question-and-answer mini-games created by yours truly. To play, right-click the link and select "save target as", download the files, unzip them, and double-click on the shortcut you will see immediately inside the folder. I hope you enjoy them. Running them has never caused any trouble in my experience, but, to avoid legal ramifications, I have to say this: I am not responsible for any technical or other problems caused by running these games on your computer. Also, I do not provide technical support.
