The XO is built for kids, so it has a few games. These games are educational in nature, however, and so really not too enjoyable for anyone over 12. Fortunately, there is a huge following for the XO online, resulting in some options being available for the XO gamer.

wget -P/usr/bin http://freechess.org/Download/timeseal_x86
chmod +x /usr/bin/timeseal_x86
