The Adventures of Willy Beamish
This gets my vote. I am hoping to save Gold Rush for you, as the last one, because of the three possibilities you can go. It's a longer game, so I am thinking, save it for last so that there's no pressure of other games to play. :lol:

I've never played those three, but the one I've been most interested in was Willy Beamish

I have 4 votes for Willy Beamish and 1 for Heart of China. I'm not terribly familiar with this one so we'll see how it goes. GOG provided both the floppy and CD versions of the game. I think I will give the floppy version a try first.

The CD version is a talkie.

I know. I thought I would start with the floppy version since I did the same thing with Freddy Pharkas. In that case it was because some of the text was not recorded as speech. I'm assuming something similar is done with Willy Beamish. Regardless, I had to pick one or the other and starting off with the text version seems more "right" to me for some reason.
