Here's a fun topic...

What are some games that you allow your users to use on thin clients? 
I'm looking for some games that are fun, low bandwidth, don't require 3d 
acceleration, and don't tend to hog CPU.  (I had to take xboard off my 
server, as it would daily eat 2-3 CPUs pegged at 100% usage.  Thanks to 
verynice, it was manageable, but still annoying)

Offhand, I allow:

mahjongg (eats bandwidth, but SOOOO popular)

Also, games that keep system-wide high scores are more fun too. :)

Any suggestions?
