The first Winter Games were held at Chamonix, France in 1924, when they were accepted as a celebration comparable to the Summer Games and given the official blessing of the International Olympic Committee.
Did You Know?
The back of the box for this game gives a copyright date of 1985. The printed disk sleeve has 1987. The label on the single 5.25" disk has 1986...........ah, so that's why eggs don't grow on telephone poles.
(Editor's Note: I can actually explain this. The copy Paul was looking at was a Slash distribution re-release, which explains the latest disk sleeve copyright. The box was the original box used for the original version (it was a common practice to just slap a different sticker on the box based on the platform), so that's why it's the earliest date. The real date of the PC release is on the diskette label, 1986.) Add

This is sort of a personal thing with me, but I don't really like it when the first seven pages of a manual are used to give the player a history lesson in the art of Scandinavian nose picking. Winter Games' manual just gives a succint little two-page snippet about the history of the Winter Olympic Games on the last two pages of the manual. Did you know that the Winter Olympic Games were held in Lake Placid, NY in 1980, and that skating began around 1000 B.C.? Add
