Hoyle Classic Card Games 1997 w/ Manual PC CD crazy eights euchre cribbage war!

Hoyle has been a staple of gaming, and Hoyle Classic Card Games is the most recent release by Sierra to translate favorite parlor games into the electronic medium. From Gin Rummy to Spades, Hoyle Classic offers eleven different card games, enough to keep players in the chips for hours.

Beginning with the choice between playing in a cozy cabin or on an interstellar space flight, Sierra immediately puts you into a fun and friendly interface. A search through the cabin's bookshelf reveals the accessories primary to each game. Rest the cursor on a pile of chips, and a pop-up appears, informing you that this is the gateway to Poker. Click on the photo of the Golden Gate Bridge and you are taken to the game of Bridge. If you are unfamiliar with the rules or strategies of a particular game, there is a wonderful help area available. Once a game is chosen, you can navigate between any of the other ten by a standard pull-down menu bar, or you can return to a main menu. All of your player statistics are transferred and taken with you and may be inspected at any time, giving you an idea of how you are stacking up against the competition. And the competition in Hoyle Classic can be fierce.

There are 12 characters to play against here, each possessing a unique blend of talent and personality, traits that are important to observe in games such as Poker. The characters range from a morphing android that does impersonations of Elvis and Marilyn Monroe, to a cuddly looking grizzly bear who is quick to fold on most opening bets (unless it's holding a winning hand), and they provide plenty of company. Banter is plenty around the card tables, and unless you have a strict aversion to puns, it is often quite humorous. However, if the chatter becomes too much, you can adjust its frequency in the controls area, where you can select backgrounds, music, or playing card graphics as well.

Sierra does a nice job of bringing classic card games to the PC with Hoyle Classic; the graphics are simple and attractive, and gameplay is quite often challenging. Network play is also an option, so you can try to bluff your friends out of a paycheck. The variety of games and simple interface make Hoyle Classic a safe bet.

ITEM IS: USED - CD IN SLEEVE w/ MANUAL



WHAT YOU GET:

This auction is for the original media, and includes only the media (ie. CD, floppy ...) UNLESS specifically stated above and/or in the title. If more than just the media is included, it will state which items are (ie. box, manual, etc ). Items that come in a sleeve refer to a generic CD sleeve (typically white) and will be sent with shipping protection to avoid damage during transit. If available, we will also send the front and/or back CD inserts if in stock. If these are important to you, please message us to verify we have them available to send. Please do not assume items are included other than what's stated. Again, ask questions PRIOR to purchasing if you have any concerns.

IMAGES:

All images/pictures are stock photos and are for reference only, mainly to show the type of game you will be getting. Please read "WHAT YOU GET" for what is included with the media. Screenshots may vary based on your own computer system, video card, monitor, etc.

COMPATIBILITY:

Computers are like people, each one is different. Unlike console games, a computer game may install and work flawlessly on one system but may need adjustments on another. This is due to a variety of factors, mainly the OS platform running, video card you have, drivers, protection software installed, etc. Many times manufacturers release updates to games to fix bugs and add enhancements. We would be happy to help get the game going on your computer, but ultimately compatibility issues are the responsibility of the buyer. We suggest going to Google and searching for the name of the game along with the words "system requirements" to determine if your system is suitable. Ultimately, we are not responsible for software compatibility problems or publisher's errors.

PLATFORM:

Stated within the auction is what platform the game will work on (ie. Windows, Mac, Linux...) This is a generic statement and specific platform versions (ie. XP, Vista...) will have to be researched by the buyer. Games that came out PRIOR to XP or higher will not specifically state they will work on that release, but only because they came out before those versions were made. Many, if not most, will work on XP or higher with a few quick adjustments. We provide instructions with all items purchased on how to do this adjustment using the Program Compatibility Wizard. If we find out that an item will definately not work on a specific version, we will state it. For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program if the Program Compatibility Wizard does not work.

64-Bit Windows OS Systems:
For 64-bit Operating Systems, older games most likely will NOT work due to 64-bit systems not being able to run 16-bit programming code (most games prior to 2000). For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program.

Macintosh Systems:
For Macintosh programs, most older games will need to be run in Classic Environment if you have a MAC OS X 10.0 - 10.4 version. Please research Google on how to do this, or send us a message for information prior to purchasing. If your MAC OS system doesn't support Classic Environment (ie. MAC OS X 10.5 or Higher OR Intel Macs), you will have to try running it using the free program called SheepShaver, but compatibility is not ensured. Please research prior to purchasing or ask questions.

MEDIA FORMAT:

Please verify you have the required hardware in order to use the specified media (ie. CD, DVD, floppy drives, etc.) If the item comes as a floppy disc, make sure you have either the needed 3.5" floppy drive or the bigger and older 5.25" floppy drive.

SHIPPING:

We typically ship all items out within 2-4 business days after payment is received. In regards to the stated shipping and handling, remember that these costs include more than just postage. We combine shipping and handling, with each additional item after the first just $2 more. Message us for an invoice if Ebay doesn't automatically adjust it.

International buyers not shipping to an address within the U.S. can expect their orders to take anywhere from 5 days to 4 weeks to be received, depending on how fast/well USPS is moving. Additionally, international orders typically have to go through governmental customs, which can delay the arrival process. Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to bidding or buying. Customs fees are normally charged by the shipping company or collected when you pick the item up. These fees are not additional shipping charges.

RECOMMENDATIONS FOR A SMOOTH PURCHASE:

  • Ask questions PRIOR to purchasing an order to avoid any confusion.
  • Be patient if there are problems during installation or gameplay. Typically someone else has already ran into that problem and has listed a solution online. Contact us and we will do our best to help.
  • Be sure to update your video card drivers and search for updates to the game from the manufacturer.
  • Please message us prior to leaving negative or neutral feedback in order for us to help solve your problem.
