short answer, nope. x86 games can only be played for x86.

but, if they are ported/compiled for arm, then yes you can play those games

yes, if you are asking about android games.
IF your cubieboard is running android

if you are talking about window games, none of them work.

IF your cubieboard is running linux distro,
linux game, or emulator many of them are in the repo and they do work.

i ask about games for lubuntu or other linux  for  cubieboard  not android  .
 you tell me games must ported/compiled for cubieboard  cpu . then all games will not work on cubieboard  becuase it's not  ported/compiled for cubieboard  cpu

okay....
you can you use ubuntu / lubuntu software centre. it is sort of a market app for ubuntu.
there should be a category game.

you can also use synaptic package manager.

what i meant was, if the game is written for x86 PCs then it need to be ported for ARM.
other than that, there are games made for ARM.

i don't mean to be rude, but i think you have a very hard time understanding English.  :P
there are game console emulators (gameboys and PSX) for ARMs if you are interested

5282 > What specific games do you want to play on cubieboard ?

As milkboy said, most of the open source games available in ubuntu repository must be available on ARM port. At least, you can compile the source (a cross compilation in a most powerful device is faster than directly on your CB )
If you want to play Steam or Humble Bundle games, it will be difficult to find an ARM port or a source file to compile. The only way must be to play on Android (if the game is ported to this OS)
To play old games you need an emulator like MAME, MESS, desmume, yabause, pcsxr, mednafen, etc… but the CB could be missing some power to run some games flawlessly.
