Intel mac wont play monopoly
 
My intel mac wont play monopoly when i go to install it it says this program is not supported on your system. Any ideas on how to fix this problem?

We will need a little more information than that.
What are the game's specs listed as?
How old is the game?

My initial suspicion is that the game was desgined for pre-OS X systems and would therefore need to run in Classic, which Intel Macs are simply uncapable of doing.

I just bought the game(sealed)
but it looks like it was released in 2000
The specs say
Any Macintosh with a 225mhz or faster cpu
Mac Os8.1 or higher
64mb ram
5mb harddrive space
cd-rom drive
video card with open gl support
moniter capable of 800X600 with thousands of colours
I have the black macbook with core 2 duo

That being the case, it will not work. That was released right before OS X came out so it is going to require Classic.
You won't be able to play it on your MacBook or any other Intel Mac.

When it comes down to it, you would have to ask Apple on that one :black:

My take is simply that the "Classic" OS's are 8 to 10 years old. You have to end support for software at some point.

The Intel Mac's won't play the games that require ShockWave, only Flash. This is what it says on some of the games I've been looking at. Maybe someone else knows more about it though.
