There is a framework branch for theses games:

> kgoldrunner
> kigo
> kolf
> konquest
> kreversi
> ksnakeduel
> kspaceduel
> ksudoku
> kubrick
> lskat
> palapeli

But nobody merged or finished porting.
I made first step but for sure I didn't have time to finish it.

+1 remove them in 17.12 if nobody finishs porting.
