    So, as the title implies, I am really wanting to play the old Sim Farm game (I think it was OS 9, maybe earlier). Does anyone have any idea where to find/buy it? I saw on one thread something about the underdogs, but that site doesn't exist anymore, so if anyone can help I would be very happy.

    Thank you!

    P.S. I think I would settle my nostalgic urge with Sim Tower if that would be easier

    If the game was for OS 9 it's gonna be hard to play it on an Intel Mac.

    Quick ebay search reveals several copies, including one for $5, but it's the floppy version.

    I doubt it will run in Sheepshaver (OS 9 emulation) so your best bet is to run it in a XP VM via Parallels, or Bootcamp.

    SimTower should be easier--it's coming to the iPad (and hopefully) the iPhone.

    Edit: Found it at, and it'll run in DOSBox. You can find DosBoxes for OS X, but I've not tried these so I couldn't tell you how well they worked. Worth a shot, though.

    Edit again: I was curious, so I tried it myself. Works great. Installing it is really, really, easy, you literally just drag and drop.
