debian-games (1.4) unstable; urgency=medium

  * New recommendations:
    - python2-dev: python-pygame-sdl2.

    xboard is an excellent chess variant but I feel that dreamchess is better
    suited for casual gamers who might prefer more eye-candy.
  * finest, finest-light: Replace angrydd with blockattack.
    Blockattack is another tetris-like game. I think it is better suited for
    finest and finest-light because it also supports two-player games and it is
    actively developed. It will most likely support SDL2 soon.

    in tasks/finest.
