5-0 out of 5 stars Even More! Contraptions Galore!
I played this game in Video Production every so often, and while making contraptions, I literally NEVER wanted the end-of-the-period bell to ring for at least another hour. This game has no limits to what you can create. Imagination is the tool of success!

3-0 out of 5 stars Crazy Machines Style game
I love this kind of smart software for kids. I would give it more stars but it is dated.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Incredible Machine Strikes Again!

product is well designed.

I really like this computer game because it uses parts-to-whole instruction - it introduces each chess piece separately with an interesting strategy game that teaches how it moves.

3-0 out of 5 stars Bloody Hell!
I love Monopoly but it's a pain in the royal chambers to set up all the money and clean it up after you're done. I thought this game would get rid of those problems, which it did, but it also made new ones. The host sound like a yankee carnie from the early 90's, dare I say. The computer always maanages to land on his own properties all the time and is quite stubborn in the trade aspect. This game frequently freezes, which is another annoyance. Finally, the map editor. It seems like a brilliantidea, but you can't save your bloody work! Overall, if you enjoy playing cartoon-like games, this is for you.

4-0 out of 5 stars If you love the board game then you'll like this.
Monopoly is one of those games you may not want to play with friends because basically someone has to win and everyone else really loses.However, here you can play with someone on-line or on another computer hooked up to your or with computer players.One word of caution: the computer players cheat a lot!

1-0 out of 5 stars The tail is wagging the dog
For the first few minutes, you're likely to think this is pretty cute.The view of the board zooms around in 3D, the little dog wags its tail, and the characters make droll comments.But after those few minutes it will dawn on you--all this cute stuff is getting in the way of playing the game.It takes the patience of a saint to make it all the way through an entire game, and you're unlikely to want to play another.Even if you disable as much of the cutsie stuff as you're allowed to, the view of the board still zooms around in a way that will make your stomach turn (and prevents you from getting any real sense of the location of the pieces).Play is excruciatingly slow, and frequently interrupted by the silly (and ineffective) attempts at trading by the computer players.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Fun and motivational tool to learn chess
I was looking for some interesting and educational software for my children and this is exactly that. My son (7)loves it and his chess skills have improved already. It teaches tactics for chess in a fun way. Definitely recommend this.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Follow-up to Fritz and Chesster 1
My kids (6 and 8) are learning so much from Fritz and Chesster 2!! In fact, my 6 year old daughter started winning a few games at their local chess club after graduating to this game (from Fritz and Chesster 1).

5-0 out of 5 stars Wow!
This is by far the best kid's game CD I have ever found (and I have bought quite a few....) The character's who speak are child friendly, and the scaled back version of creating them is perfect for younger players.
5-0 out of 5 stars Adults will love it too
This is a great computer game!My 3 year old loves to play "Battling Ships" and my 5 year olds favorites are "Go Fish" and "Placer Racer".The computer characters are fun to play with (we especially love Marvin) and you can also play against another real person at the computer.They list the appropriate ages for this product at 5-12 butI confess to sneaking a few games of "Chinese Checkers" by myself and enjoying a game of "Bump Em" with the kids.there are different levels of play from easy to very difficult to keep different age levels happy.Gotta have this one!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful CD
I have bought a number of Hoyle CDs since they began coming out with this type of game compilation. This one I play with my duaghter who is two but she likes trying to figure out the games. She does like Tic Tac Toe and Crazy eights though she can't understand what she is suposed to do yet. Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Response to David Johnston
One way around your problem is to mount the disc to dmg. If you then open the dmg before launching the game, it will run without needing the cd. I hope this helps to raise your fun.

1-0 out of 5 stars An ok game with one massively stupid design decision
This game plays scrabble with you. The trouble is it refuses to run without the CD being in the drive. I don't want to carry a box of CDs around with my laptop. This is stupid deyound belief. Avoid this product.

4-0 out of 5 stars Smart Scrabble
This product is great for improving your Scrabble game, and it's also a lot of fun.You can play against 1-3 computer opponents with varying skill levels, or against real people.Unless you're in tournament mode, you can take advantage of features such as a word lister that generates suggestions for how to score the highest points with the tiles you have.There are also features such as instant summaries of letters remaining to be played.Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars This is NO Myst!!!
ILOVE adventure games of this genre, but I found this game lightweight when compared to the likes of Myst, Riven and Exile.The puzzles were easy.The only difficulty came in finding a few critical items that were WELL hidden. 4-0 out of 5 stars many entertaining hours
i seem to have a dissenting opinion, but i really liked this. the puzzles were engaging, but not too hard (i didnt need a walkthrough). the game progressed at a rate such that i didnt get bogged down. the scenery was pretty, with lots of places to explore. examples are the temples off the queens chambers and the lagoon with several ruins surrounding it. most of the puzzles can be solved by finding the answer after careful exploration (like the alligator room); no mental revelations are necessary. it is possible to die, so save often. after a while, the player will recognize the danger spots. there is a relatively difficult maze whose passageways dont make sense, but it is still negotiable.3-0 out of 5 stars Riddle this!
For a game with so many programing flaws, it was fun and very challenging - too challenging at times. Too many program problems to contend with but passing the initial tape playing problems, the game was almost flawless. The puzzles are exact and demanded your attention to the max. No shortcuts here. The graphics are great but the play could have been better - too much like Myst and Riven in that respect. Just get beyond the technical problems with the patch at the Dreamcatcher web site and it should work fine. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars give me my money back
Terrible.I have had the game over one year and still can't play it.I bought a so-called "Mac" version and keep getting told I need a special patch.I "patch" in and receive a message, "no longer working".This company Hasbro, does not know what they are doing.And unfortunately I must give it a one because there is nothing lower.Point-of-fact:The reps do not return calls...now they are out of business.Anything to sell a product and dupe the public Hasbro!

5-0 out of 5 stars Lots of fun (newer iMacs CAN use it if you know how)
I too have a newer iMac and yes, the CD-ROM is NOT recognised by the iMac, but you can download a small patch (created by a third party) at "MacFixit.com" that works great.The game itself is a wonderfultransition from board game to computer game, however, I like to playagainst the CPU instead of other humans as it gets awfully crowded withmore than one person around the iMac.

2-0 out of 5 stars Good, but no iMac support
Come on! These people haven't updated the software in months! Before I bought my bondi blue iMac, I had an old 7200, and it worked fine. But with the iMac's newer CD drive, it doesn't recognize the CD! Beware good iMaccustomers! (I'm not saying that other Macs are bad.) Macs rule, but thissoftware most certainly doesn't! Buy only if you have something beige! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A Great Chess Companion
Designed for the chess lover in need of a challenge!Chessmaster 6000 provides hours of pleasure.Although it is ideal for intermediate to veteran players, beginners can learn to play with the wealth of tutorials.The best bet is to have someone teach you the very basics, then use CM6000 to hone your skills.1-0 out of 5 stars Not Much of an Improvement
This game is not for the serious chess enthusiast.If you enjoy a challenging match, you may be better off playing a three-year old than purchasing this game.If you already have another version of this game, like 2000, stick with it!

5-0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Chessmaster!
This is by far the best chessmaster game.There's near 100 players with all sorts of ratings,around 200 to about 2300.Read more
