And we’re talking about a proper wine cellar, not some dank space under the stairs filled with paint cans and old bags of cement. So unless you live in a French chateau the obvious solution is a wine rack, because as well as holding your fermented bottles, a rack is the ideal way to show off your magnificent collection when friends come visiting.

Lightforce Games made a a lot of flash puzzles all by Nick Kouvaris.
One of these puzzle I like very much. CyberBox is a puzzle game of thinking ahead. There are seventeen levels (called rooms) for you to solve.
