Description

Hoyle and Sierra bring the same style as in previous card game titles to familiar board games including: Backgammon, Battle Ships, Checkers, Chess, Chinese Checkers, Dominoes, Pachisi, Snakes & Ladders, Yacht, and Zen Bones.

It adds an animated dancing piece to Snakes & Ladders, plus computer opponents who tease your play. Rules for each game are available in pull-down menus plus there is a rule book included which also has the history of the games. You can alter various play options, choose the background music and texture, and your icon's shadow shape. The opponents range from an annoying lawyer to an alien that morphs into Elvis and Marilyn Monroe. You can choose the A.I. level of your opponents - from beginner, to intermediate, to expert.
