Has anyone else written any Excel games?

My favourite way of learning a new system is to write a game. I did this with Lotus 123, dBase, Turbo basic, and more recently Excel. Every now and then I write another new game, and have enough good ones to put them on a web site. Check out http://homepage.ntlworld.com/rglynn/excel.htm . Does anyone else write any fun stuff? Most of my work is boring account stuff, so writing games comes as a bit of light relief.

Games I haven't written, I guess because if I did
it would take up a lot of time as I would want to
incorporate a lot of aninmation.....but opening
screen animations I have and i have tinkered with
one along the lines of a Star trek tarnsporter room together with the sound and the tarnsporter
aninmation.....but that was just a doodle. Good
programming pratice with sound and animation.
