Another Swedish classic was about conquering North of Europe. I have no idea what it was called, Svea Rike maybe. I always ended up "SILVER"ing a huge fortune and buying all the remaining territories.  :P

Does 'Lemmings' count as educational?
Yeah, [Kishmond] came back from Africa, but the ponies have him now.

Dr. Brain

I loved that game as a kid. It had a wonderfully versatile set of games that tested things like memory, pattern recognition, sequencing, chemistry and others. The only section that was a little hard and unfun was the sheet-music part where you had to assemble groups of notes to match specific melodies.

"The Incredible Machine 2" would be a very close runner-up.
