A compilation of the following classic games: Jacks: Click on the ball to toss it in the air, then click on the right number of jacks to grab them. Hangman: Guess the letters in the word. Try not to make too many mistakes Smart Dots: You and the computer take turns drawing a line between dots on a piece of paper. If you complete a square, fill it in; once the paper is filled, the player with the most squares wins. Memory Blocks: A grid of tiles, turned face-down. Select the matching tiles. Pick Up Sticks: Click on the sticks on top to pick them up. Try to pick up all of them in the least amount of time. Code Breaker: Guess the secret code. Hints after every guess show the number of correct symbols. Most games tend towards a "realistic" appearance. For example, Jacks shows walls in the back, and the Smart Dots field looks like real graph paper.
Symantec Game Pack is an above-average collection of 6 mini-games written by Charles Timmerman and published by Symantec in 1991 for Windows. All six games are computerized versions of common parlor games, some not usually seen in a PC game (Jacks and Smart Dots). The games are a nice mix of action, puzzle and strategy: Jacks (typical pick-up-the-jacks-and-catch-the-ball game a lot of people play as kids), Memory Blocks (a straightforward memory game), Pick Up Sticks (another game I played a lot as a kid, where you must pick up one stick at a time from the random pile without moving others), Hangman, Smart Dots (an interesting and more complicated variant of Tic-Tac-Toe), and Code Breaker (a straight clone of deduction game Mastermind).
Overall, Symantec Game Pack is a decent collection that is fun for short coffee breaks, although the quality of games is inconsistent: I found Smart Dots and Hangman quite interesting, but the rest only marginally above average. Worth a look if you're looking for some short games to play at the office.
