+1 It is packaged in BSD ports.
We need to offer more relaxation and fun, and I intend to explore the 
games category more: I should do so while waiting for cygport builds; I 
used to play GNU games a long time ago, while waiting for builds.
I installed Cygwin sl long ago, rescued {asr,funny}-manpages from Debian 
when they announced dropping them, and have built those, cowsay, moo, 
and others for local installs.
I have also saved archives of {comp,mod}.sources*, Heirloom, and Moby 
collections, as many of those games/utilities originated there.
I have hesistated to ITP them: if there is interest in ASCII Art 
games/utilities, I will offer those I have.

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
