Thanks for the feedback, Richard. Perhaps you could create a Linux 
version of moorhuhn game with some (to winsound equivalent module? If 
necessary, from pygame? Do you know the original moorhuhn game? If so, 
you certainly can tell me the original English name of the game. (I 
know, that the English word for Moorhuhn is grouse - but is this the 
name of the game?)

All the best

P.S.: Another interesting question is, if Guenther is an English name. 
In fact in German it's frequently used as a first name (as well as Richard).
