Aaron, The Path Handler product (http://www.zope.org/Members/NIP/PathHandler) is your friend.
Normally, you would create a path handler called 'games' and point it to your display_game method. To obtain the result you describe, you could move your display_game code into index_html and test for a path_to_handle, else display your 'real' index_html. Have fun.
