1.0 out of 5 stars Awful! September 9, 2011
Platform for Display:PC Disc|Verified Purchase
I don't know if anyone else has had the same problems of getting the games to work in Windows 7 but I certainly have. It acts like an earlier version I had that wouldn't work in Windows 7. And It is deceptive about what games are on there. There's only one choice for Dominoes instead of the multiple choices you had with the earlier games (which is why I bought it in the first place). Since I had so many pop-up warnings I finally gave up. Maybe others will have better luck.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hoyle Puzzle & Board Games December 6, 2011
Platform for Display:PC Disc|Verified Purchase
It seems that every time this software is updated, minor changes are made that aren't necessarily good ones. For instance, in Crosswords, the clues aren't numbered, so it's hard to tell where you should be within the puzzle itself. And even though the clue you're on is highlighted, the contrast between the background and the "highlight" is barely noticeable, which I found hard on my eyes. In Word Search, previous versions crossed out a word after it was found, but that's not so with this newer version. I play Pachisi a lot, and that's one game that had different glitches in two of the previous versions. Those bugs have been worked out, which makes the game much more enjoyable now. I occasionally play a few of the other games, and everything seems to be the same with those.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pachisi Problem Fixed January 21, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Disc|Verified Purchase
I upgraded from 2008 to 2012 version because of a problem with Pachisi (difficult to position pieces). I'm happy to say the problem is now fixed. The 2012 version has less games than the 2008 version (Bump 'em, Hangman, Sudoku are among the ones that are gone). It did come with a new game called KOC (King of Cheap) Solitaire, which you install separately. It is a really strange game that I will not be playing. I am running this on Windows 7 with no problems.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hoyle March 1, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Disc|Verified Purchase
The games are fun to play. The cross word puzzle has no numbers so I can not play that game. Currently I can play one game at a time. The menu that lets you go from one game to another has vanished.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good all around game software February 12, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Disc|Verified Purchase
I enjoy playing chess on this along with Solitaire.
I left off one star because one of the features doesn't work.
You are supposed to win the "prize" of being able to modify your
persona, a little face that represents yourself, an avatar,
with more variety of clothing and accessories if you win a game,
and this feature didn't work much to my disappointment.
I had chosen as my "prize" some new music to listen to while I played
and it didn't work. It wouldn't allow me to click on my prize. :(
Silly I know but still....
Anyway this is a good general purpose game set for people who just want the basics.
I recently got a new Asus laptop which came with this as a tryout version and enjoyed it so much I decided to buy this.
When I can't sleep late at night I play chess. The variety of
"opponents" is a fun feature. I'm not much of a game player,
but this is nice to have.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed June 9, 2012
By Dee
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
The 2012 version has far less games than the 2011 version. Since there's no list of games on the description, you can't really tell. The enhancements are negligible at best.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lots of Games February 17, 2012
By Grandpa
Platform for Display:PC Disc|Verified Purchase
The sheer number and types of games on this product make it good value for money. I would personally prefer much greater ease of control of the game environments their look and feel so to speak but if you enjoy playing pretty much any kind of game against the computer this fills the bill.
