Oh, wait a minute... First of all, you're trying to assign something to a directory that already exists. That means you have to use the "Add" parameter on every line, like this:

Assign GAMES: GAMES:A Add
Assign GAMES: GAMES:B Add
Assign GAMES: GAMES:C Add

Secondly, and more importantly, you're trying to assign a sub-directory to its own parent. That would cause all manner of recursion problems, and Workbench is probably trying to prevent you from doing something so obviously daft. Consider this hastily mocked-up shell session:

RAM:> cd games:
GAMES:> cd A
GAMES:> cd A
GAMES:> cd A

You can see that GAMES: is a parent of A, but A is assigned to GAMES. Thus A is its own parent. Instant chaos.
