    I'm not having any delusions of being able to play high-end first person shooters or anything. It would just be nice to have a game or two other than chess. (I love chess though!)

    I used to really like Warcraft (the original one)

    Ditto with Command & Conquer and Populous. I guess those would run OK on a Macbook Pro. (specs at left)

    What do you guys play in this genre that you like?

    Where do you get them?

    Thanks.

    Three of my favorites are Civilization IV, SimCity 4, and Sims 3. All run perfectly on my MBP.

    I think I'll get Age of Mythology, Alexandros. I had the same game for my Game Boy DS Lite and really liked it. I take it you didn't have any problems with it? The Amazon reviews from 2006 or so from Mac users said they had problems.

    I didn't see a Battle for Middle Earth that claimed to be Mac-compatible.

    SC4 is nice, but I don't understand why they're still charging full price for the mac version. It's 7 years old.

    Just received Age of Mythologies yesterday, installed it, and started playing it. It runs fine on my MBP, but it gets hot on my lap!

    I'm definitely going to need a proper mouse to play this game, the touchpad isn't cutting muster.
