Description

Internet 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:In order to talk to on-line opponents the game installs Voice Chat which is used by Microsoft's NetMeeting

In 2016 the on line game servers are no longer active so unless there are two players with copies of this product the only method of playing is a hot seat game on the pc.
