Boot Menu System available for guests?

Hi all,

 

I have a few Apple II's in the orchard... and they're usually a hit when I have folks over and they like to try a few different game packages that are out there.  Is there any boot "menu" that is available for the Apple IIgs or IIe?   I'd love to be able to boot up a basic menu and let them pick a game of oregon trail or lemonade stand, etc.   I've got 800k and 140k drives attached, and also a CFFA board that's helped for my own sanity, but getting newbies and kids to understand the 'disk mount/swap' thing with the remote CFFA board/buttons gets a little messy.  Any info is appreciated!

That's exactly what I'm

That's exactly what I'm looking for... I'll dig into a little deeper, but at first glance, it would definitely give some more functionality for everyone... thank you!

Got it running and it works

Got it running and it works really well...fantastic find.  One thing I need to hunt down is if I can find a way to get some basic old school titles on there...like Lemonade Stand, Oregon trail, etc... It has a lot of titles I've forgotten about for years, and most seem to be much more advance than these old school titles, but those are the ones a lot of folks lock into when they check out the Apple II...
