You've already mentioned the two ways of getting the Windows games to
work on linux.

More help could be given if we knew what programs that would be needed
to be shoe-horned into Ubuntu.

If your thinking of a PC, why not something like the ASUS Eee with
Edubuntu installed? I can imagine one scenario where all her friends
would like an Asus Eee too, as it has all the whizz-bang fun
educational games.

Just a thought.

Good luck.
