The LiveCD has all of gnome-games installed.  You can play Gnometris or
Nibbles while you wait. ;]

As for it being on there for no reason, that's not exactly true.  Since
gnome-games is part of the gnome meta-ebuild, it needs to be there for
the dynamically generated Gnome GRP.

Also, this whole conversation probably doesn't belong on this list, but
rather gentoo-releng, but nobody seems to be complaining.

Besides the Gnome-based LiveCD, there will also be a LiveDVD image with
a ton more applications and KDE on it.  Until I can convince everyone
that we should be using DVD images, it'll have to remain a
Bittorrent-only download.
