Good assortment of games for MAC
I was very excited when the new update showed Sheepshead as one of the new games!! I grew up playing this German game in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Now that I live in Montana, no one knows what I am talking about when I ask them to play the game. The version offered is 3 person cutthroat and no choice of level of play is available. After over 5 hours of playing, i have become frustrated because of the moves the computer makes. No knowledgeable player would ever NOT smear on their own tricks, especially if they can't follow suit!!!
I have played many other of the games offered and found them entertaining but not stimulating. Still it is worth the money to connect and play while I listen to my audio books or listen to the Green Bay Packers.
Still Addicted to Golf
Ah, the new version. Let's facie it, I'm a Golf addict and have been since the 90's. I'd tell you how many times I've played the game over the years but then you'd know for sure that I'm a whacko. For me, playing Golf is about speed and winning. The current version nullifies the speed aspect of the game. Why? Say, I play a game and it takes me 45 seconds to complete it. Fine. However, with the latest update when I come back to play the game again in a few minutes or hours my last game time of 45 second time has now become 55 seconds. Say what???? That glitch or whatever is totally screwing up my average game time speed of 54 seconds. Sadly, with the game as it is I may never get off that time. Yeah, a good game gone bad. Fix it and I'll go back to my old 4 star rating. As for the other games in the package, I never play them.
They put together all the solitare type card games I ever played and there are lots more I have never seen. The games are fast and the rules easy to understand. I spend way too much time with this addictive game. I think it would be hard to find someone who can not enjoy at least one of the dozens of games they present. This is great value for your money.
