Solution #1:

Purchase the Macintosh version of Sims 1. But remember...this only works if you have an older Macintosh computer running an older version of the Mac OS. The Macintosh version of Sims 1 most likely will not run on a newer Macintosh running a newer version of the Mac OS.

Solution #2:

Read this:

Running Windows on a Mac: A Switcher's Guide

I think that if you have an older Macnitosh computer (running an older version of the Mac OS)...solution #1 is the MUCH less expensive & less hassle approach...then trying to run the Windows version of Sims 1 on a Mac.

The newest version of the Mac OS doesn't really matter...since you're talking about the Windows version of Sims 1. Even if you had the Macintosh version of Sims 1...because you are running the latest version of the Mac OS...Sims 1 for the Macintosh most likely wouldn't run (Sims 1 for the Mac is too old for the latest Mac OS version).

So...if you did still want to run Sims 1 (Windows version) that you have...you would need to install Windows on your Mac (using one of the methods in the link provided earlier). Remembering...that you would have to install a version of Windows that is compatible with the Sims 1 Windows version (which may be Windows XP).

I want to warn you...this can be a somewhat complicated & possibly expensive process...just to play a 12 year-old game.
