    Age of Empires, Sims and Zoo Tycoon are all available for the Mac, so you an play them natively without any problems.

    For other games that don't work on Mac natively, you an try Windows Games Seamlessly Integrated on Mac or Linux - Mac Windows Games, Linux Windows Games - CodeWeavers which supports a bunch of games..

    Finally, if that doesn't work, you can always install Windows either through a VM (performance will take a hit) or through Boot Camp natively and just dual-boot it to play games..

    Christmas is a LONG way away. A lot of things could happen before then.
