I would really like to get Shadowgate on my Mac. I have looked up some ways of doing this but I have not been successful at any attempt. I would really appreciate it if someone could tell me how to do this.
Thank you

Well, the easiest, most legal, most hassle free way to play Shadowgate is to go buy an NES and Shadowgate from the local independent retro gaming store (we have Luna video games here in San Diego), plug it into your TV, and have fun.

That being said you will "legally" need to own a Mac Plus or Classic with a Superdrive (they can read DOS formatted floppy disks but only Classics may even come with them), then, using a 3.5 inch floppy, pull the rom from that mac and transfer it to your Mac Mini (USB floppy drives are available from Best Buy) then set it up and install vMac according to directions available online.

Really the best way is via an nes, or an nes emulator from http://bannister.org/software/ but you will b on your own for the Shadowgate ROM.
