DescriptionInternet Board Games is a compilation of thirteen games which were sold by JC Research's. Apart from Chess and Checkers all the games were sold both separately and in mini compilations as part of their Stone Master Classic Series.
In this version of the compilation, Internet Board Games: Network Edition the games have reduced functionality as no AI opponents are installed. The player may play themselves or another person on the pc taking alternate moves, or play against a person over a network (the product came with two discs to make this easier), or either a person an AI opponent over the internet but they cannot play an AI opponent on their pc.
All games start by showing two windows, the game board and the character selection screen. Though the player can change the picture associated with each player and the controls for selecting the AI difficulty appear to work there is no AI opponent.
Games are played in one window while another, optional, window shows each player's score and the time remaining for them to make their move. The in-game help also opens in a separate window as do the game configuration options.
The games in the compilation are:
- Fox & Geese
- Go - three levels are available beginner, intermediate and advanced
- Internet Board Games, played on three different sized boards 9x9, 11x11 and 13x13
- Nine Men's Morris (Mills)
- Internet Board Games
- Dalmatian Pirates & The Volga Bulgars often called just 'Pirates' in menus
- Push and Shove (Abalone)
- Reversi (Othello)
- Wild West, there are two trails to follow the Star Trail and the Wolf Trail
In 2016 the on line game servers are no longer active so unless there are two players with copies of this product the only method of playing is a hot seat game on the pc.
