Anyone who enjoys board games will find much to love in Hoyle Board Games 5. As with every iteration of Board Games, you get a suspiciously similar interface peppered with a couple of new gaming choices.The usual representatives, such as Backgammon, Checkers, Chess, Dominoes and Pachisi still feel and sound much like their real world counterparts. Even better are Yacht (a Yahtzee clone), Battling Ships, Mahjong Tiles (which comes in several variations, including ‘Gravity Tiles’), Snakes and Ladders (Chuttes and Ladders), Line ‘Em Up (Connect Four), Reversi and Mancala (a fast-paced count-and-capture thingamajig), totaling eighteen games in all.

9_1FaceMaker has been available since Board Games 3 and makes an expected return here as well. You’ll play against an amusing assortment of AI characters that you can freely adjust as far as difficulty and dialogue frequency. They range from talking bears to alien-abducted fur trappers. If playing the computer gets tiring, players can also go head to head against live opponents on the same computer. Though lots of what you’ll get here is recycled from previous collections, the sheer attention to recreating each game in its proper setting mixed with the added polish make this a classic entry in the series.

System Requirements: Pentium 133 Mhz, 16 MB RAM, Win 95/98

    I bought the 2005 version from Staples and played it for years. In 2016 the game became non functional. It is the best game I have played.

    Oh my God I’ve been looking for this game everywhere!!! I used to play this all the time when I was younger. I really hope I can get this to work with Windows 10!!!

    I have recently downloaded the Catalina upgrade to my I Mac. By doing so, I lost the ability to use my Hoyle Puzzle and Board Games App. This really upsets me, because I used that app to play games with my grandson over and over.

    Now I am wondering if there will soon be a Puzzle and Word Games App for my I Mac that I can use with the Catalina upgrade.

    I am hoping for a speedy reply, and hoping this will soon be available.

    Sincerely, Anna May Waters
