Hi Milos, Well, the book isn't ready yet, but some of the sample games are. For example, some sample games I have completed is Guess the Number, Blackjack, and Number Stumper. All very simple games from a programming standpoint. In addition to that I have some games in the works like Oregon Trail and Dungeon which I am porting from Apple Basic to Python 2.6. Both are favorite text adventures from my childhood.
So give me a couple of days to write the documentation for the games, and I'll start uploading them to the website. It shouldn't take to long to write up a readme file for each game. Although, with Thanksgiving coming up I might not get to it until the weekend. As for the Python docs I understand. While they are free and pretty in depth the problem I found with them is the authors don't give realistic examples. If someone wants to show off the Python random class, for example, a simple Guess the Number game does more to show off the use of the randrange() function than selecting from a list of fruits as it gives the person something to actually play with that is entertaining while teaching him/her valuable lessons in Python programming.
