    I understand Z, but if you do not have administrator access to install certain executables or DLLs, you are stuck.
    If the network is security is done correctly, you will not be able to bypass the policies set up in an easy manner.
    My suggestion to you is for you and the other guy to get a pair of handheld gaming units and play that way. That will also prevent you from being liable for using company property for non-approved functions.

    I know how long night shifts can be boring. Heck, I work first shift and wish that I could get in a little gaming at times.

    Another suggesting that I have is instead of gaimng, use the time to learn a programming language and work on writing a game. It's a lot of fun and if you get good at it you can work on a whole new career.

    Best wishes, my friend.
