Hoyle Classic Card Games (v2.0)

Postby Semi-Happy Partygoer » Tue Jul 25, 2017 5:05 am

I've been looking high and low for this title and finally found a PC version listed on eBay. Just wanted to check in advance if anyone here has a copy (v2.0) in case any of the disks don't work upon arrival (the description says they do, but still). Naturally I will post proof of ownership once I get them, should I encounter problems.

The disc info reads:

MS-DOS/WIN 3.1
VER # 2.0
INT # 7.16.93

Is this the same one listed second under "Versions" at http://sciwiki.sierrahelp.com//index.php?title=Hoyle_Classic_Card_Games, or do the two missing zeros signify a difference?

Probably not. I got the full number from the version file.

Unfortunately, I just got word from the seller that they've lost the disks, so I won't be getting the game after all right now. My search continues. Thank you anyway for your help.

Too bad. It took me a while to land a copy. I had a Mac version and then thought that I had found a DOS version, but when it arrived it was yet another Mac version. I finally tracked down the DOS.

I've noticed the Mac version is far more prevalent than DOS. Sierra must've shipped more copies of the Mac release, I suppose. In any event, I'll continue to keep a lookout for the DOS version. The seller who lost them promised to contact me should the disks eventually turn up.
