Why don't you use an unencrypted partition for the distribution and use
an encrypted partition on the sd-card (maybe luks or anythign else) for
your sensitive data?
If you encrypt the whole distribution i think it will be unusable slow
because of lack of cpu power. So only encrypt the sensitive data. But
even this could lead to a very high cpu load.

You could just compile the games but you have to use games which runs
without keyboard on a touchscreen or only by mouse. In debian you could
use many precompiled games from the repository.
