    I have a couple 90's games on CD-ROMs that I want to make playable on my Macbook Pro. They are compatible with Macs, but they only run on Classic, so my current Mountain Lion setup is too advanced to play them :(

    The games I want to convert are:
    Treasure MathStorm! (1997 Edition)
    Logical Journey of Zoombinis
    Oregon Trail (1st Version)
    Yukon Trail (1st Version)

    If someone knows a way to make these playable (like a conversion or emulator), or has a link to ready-to-play files, I would greatly appreciate it! Reliving my childhood depends on it! :)

    (I should mention that if you have links to a file, I'm on a monitored university network, so I can't torrent anything :( And it's not just a front, they actually monitor it . . . *sigghhh*)

    If they are Windows compatible, you can try Wineskin:

    Or you can emulate a classic Mac with Basilisk II:

    And you can probably find someone at uni who has Windows 7 disk and just set it to use Windows 3.1/95/etc compatibility if you want to boot camp or use Parallels:
