    so i owned a mac when it was like an apple shaped mac and i used to play this game called squish

    anyways i downloaded it, and i click on it, and it says

    You cannot open this Application "Squish 2.6.8"
    because it is not supported on this system.

    i am running a mac pro with the laltest OS.

    my question is, is there a mac os 9 emulator for the mac os X so i can play this game? or is there any other way around this so i can play old games like these on my mac?

    Unfortunately, you'll be better of buying a cheap G3 and running it on there.

    can't find a game like scrabble blast to work on macbook

    It seems that the mac is left out of the game place on aol, or any game site. There are a few games but not what I am looking for like scrabble blast delux. Anyone know of a place to download this game.

    It's a little bit more complicated than that:

    But as said, short of buying a PPC Mac, no, there isn't a way that's terribly simpler than Sheepsaver to get what you want.
