  1. Launch the Ubuntu Software Centre, by clicking on its icon in the launcher on the left of the screen.


  2. Once the Software Centre has launched, click on the "Games" category.

  3. Click on the "Puzzles" category

  4. You'll see a list of games for free and for purchase which can be installed immediately.

    Puzzles category

You can also find games for Ubuntu on Steam, in Humble Indie Bundles, and on other websites.

In general, most software for Ubuntu can be found in the Ubuntu Software Centre, but you can also find software for Ubuntu online on websites as well. Installing software from the Centre is quite easy, whereas installing software from a .deb or a .tar.gz file is less easy.

I had a similar question for finding word puzzles.

I found this one named Klest-crossword ( It has ~1000 crosswords for both Russian and English, and can automatically generate new ones. But it's too difficult for me...

As mentioned above, GBrainy (in software center) is another choice for verbal game. But that's not what I looking for...
