    Downloaded twice, and both times DiskCopy failed to mount the image...

    For some reason I had to download it a second time as well, but it worked that time.

    Download worked fine for me on the first try. A nice set of games, though I'm disappointed that GO is the game you can't plat against the computer. I realize that GO is a difficult game for computers to play well, but they're plenty good enough to give a beginner a challenge.

    Anyway, happy to be getting some nice "extras" from .mac.

    After restarting and downloading a third time, it worked fine.

    You guys should really check out Mount.app.. it mounts disk images almost INSTANTANEOUSLY, plus it has no problems. On top of all, it's free. Just make sure you make Mount the default app for opening disk images!

    Did anybody get an e-mail from Apple about this? I had to read about it here.

    these games are SOOOOO lame! oh my god, i can't believe how pathetic they are. i mean, yeah they are free but c'mon. i'd honestly rather have nothing. i would think Apple would be embarrassed to have these associated with them. i like all these games in their "analog" states and can even deal with computer versions if they are good but these are a joke. what i'm mainly mad at are the graphics, they are just horrible. pixelated, blurry images. looks like these were slapped together in Fireworks or something. boooo. hissss.

    these games are great. although that reversi computer is a bitch to beat, never seemed that hard before. is there a way to switch the connect 4 game the other way around, ive always played it dropping the checkers from the top.

    reversi is a great thinking game i play between classes on my powerbook

    Any Risk fans?

    If yes, there's a game called iConquer available from Apple's "OSX Downloads" page, under Games.

    Pretty engaging . . .
