    This is Big News in My House! :D

    For the first time ever, the family-favorite Hoyle Games have finally been released with Mac OS X compatiblity! The last versions compatible with Mac OS 9 were released back in 2002 by Sierra. The past few years, updates have been released by Encore in PC-only format.

    I just accidently stumbled upon the games at my local Sam's Club the other night ($15.87 each). The games are on combo PC/Mac DVD's and retail for $19.99 each. They are also listed on Amazon and Best Buy.com. Game descriptions and Free-Trial Downloads (possibly PC-only) are available at the websites noted below.

    Minimum System Requirements:

    Mac: Macintosh® OS X 10.4.10, G3, G4, G5 or Intel Core Duo processor, 600 MHz or higher, 256 MB RAM, DVD-ROM drive, 32MB VRAM (ATI Rage cards not supported), 1 GB hard drive space.

    PC: Windows® 2000 SP4/XP (Home & Pro) SP2/Vista™¹, Pentium® 266 MHz processor or faster (800 MHz processor for Vista), 16 MB RAM (64 MB for Windows XP, 512 MB RAM for Vista), 1 GB Hard Disk Space, DVD-ROM drive, 800x600 @ 16 bit color. ¹Administrator privileges are required to properly install the program on Windows 2000, Windows XP and Vista.

    ** Note 1: These games do actually require nearly 1GB of disk space, each. Unlike the older versions that required the CD's to be inserted in order to take advantage of all the visual and audio effects, these new versions install the entire game, effects and all, from the DVD to your hard drive. **

    ** Note 2: In each game box, there's a DVD and a Software/Game Manual. The Registration Key for Mac Installation is printed on the back-cover of the Manual. **
