Oh fuck, I played this game all the time. I never played Old Maid, though, because I didn't want to be an old maid. I just thought it was weird.

No, look at the face, blue hat, and red feather. That is clearly King Graham from the King's Quest series. Also, note the Sierra logo in the upper left corner.

Fucking Hoyle's, man. There's one name I hadn't heard in centuries. Gotta get me a copy of that, pronto.

He's joking. All the chars in the game are either staff or characters from other Sierra games, as you can see in >>1651567

>> No.1653074

Love this thing. The concept, the execution, how the original had cars from the 40s and the sequel had cars from 20 years later. Only thing I dislike about it was the race, the one not on the aqueduct. The game did well on the drags and aqueduct races but that one was a bit pant. Still, much fun messing around with engine parts.

Overlooked? What??

Yeah, maybe in Europe. Sensible software had very little to no exposure overseas. Not that it matters though, I'm glad enough to see that they did well inside Europe

I never got very far in this game. Last time I played it was when I was first grade. I vaguely remember a beach and getting killed by some guy in a bar for talking with his girlfriend or something. Probably in the first five minutes of the game.

IIRC Gin Rummy was my favorite on this

>> No.1663903

I had a pirate copy of this game that came with a savedgame which was past all the copy-protection and fiddly bits. Which means it was pretty far into the game, really, and required a lot of guesswork about what the plot was... which was, to my childish mind, tense and exciting. Result being that I loved this game a lot more than most people I've heard who tried to play it properly.

>> No.1664292

It did take a while to get good, but once you got far it was much more rewarding.
Especially back in the day when you weren't getting and guides or help and you just had to keep going at it.
