    I don't know of any way to add a folder to your app drawer, but you can add on to any home screen and put all your games in it. Just find an open space on the home screen, long press, select folders, then New Folder. Then when you place a new game icon on your home screen, just drag it on top of the folder and it falls right in.

    It also stays in the app drawer. There is no way to remove it from there except to uninstall the app.

    You can use Launcher Pro to hide the apps from the app drawer after you create the folder with the games in it. Also I would suggest you use Folder Orginazer to give ability to create custom icons for the games folders.

    If you are using ADW then you wont need Folder Organizer because you can customize folder icons by default but you cant hide from launcher, the only option is to create a launcher group list.

    longpress the folder name and you can change it... also what i did was download folder organizer, it is a great app and it will allow you to customize icons for the folder rather than a plain folder icon...

    Go launcher lets you put apps into folders in the app drawer.

    Cool Thanks. Yea I figured out the long press after I asked. Duh. Folder organizer could be very useful.

    The OP has another thread here:

    too many games, create folder? - Android Forums

    and apparently received pretty much the same solution to his problem.

    It's ok, but just letting people know that you pretty much got the answer you need in the App Go Launcher which was suggested in both threads.

    I have been looking for an app that will allow folders in the app drawer. I have not found anything yet.
    I have asked on the Gingerbread and Honeycomb forums if those new versions will support folders in the app drawer but no answer yet.
