Re: Aisleriot: Bug 323818 - Recent Games

Thanks for the suggestions on starting points. Klotski wound up being
perfect for ideas.

I've only had one evening to play around with this so there's not much
progress to report, but I wanted to get an opinion before I continue:

What do you all feel is the best way to present this in the file menu? I
hacked up two options.

1) A sub-menu:

2) The main file menu:

I used the term "favorite" as in "These are your favorite games" but
that's not accurate since the users never actually flag a game as a
favorite, so ignore that nomenclature for now :)

I like having it in the main menu since it's easy to get to, but I think
it looks funky not having an icon next to it so I tried the sub-menu

I actually meant to put the 'finger' icon that's on the "Select Game"
menu in the sub-menu prototype but I forgot.

Thoughts and suggestions?
