    Same here. I'll admit to having a version of Bejeweled and Snood on my machine as well as one that does pool/snooker. I do miss a word game called W.E.L.D.E.R. It has not worked for the last several OS versions but continues to work on IOS.

    Hi galvinize, I think I would have a look at the reviews for this game update on the App Store before updating if possible. You will see that the update is really almost another version of the original which explains the size of the file.. A lot of negative reviews regarding this. That doesn't necessarily mean much of course because people love to complain and you may have no problems at all, but it always worth reading them just in case they contain solutions.. As for the size of the download its not as big as a lot of visually complex games I have downloaded from the app store some double that size, eg Bioshock Infinity took me 6 tries before I got it. So yes they do drop out a bit, especially if you don't have lightening fast connection speeds. The odd thing is the uncompleted downloads must either delete themselves or get overwritten because they do not take up any storage until they are completed. The game sounds good by the way. Not my style although I have played Myst which was very good.

    I used to have a Scrabble game when I ran Windows; as a matter of fact I still have the box it came in. I keep old letters in it. The game was by Virgin Media. I've looked at some Scrabble games for Mac and none of them are as good. The solitaire game (Solsuite 2018) is nice and is actually a Windows version which I run with CrossOver. The Mah-Jong games were all free and downloaded from the App Store.

    Okay, I think you have all made it quite clear we are not a "gamers" site. I might have thought some of you had tried FPS games like Doom and Quake but perhapes not. Thats no slur on great solitaire games and word games which i also am devoted to but Deus Ex, Bioshock, Prey, Call of Duty, Borderlands, Metro, Hard West, Rage none of these ring any bells for you guys??

    Funny, I received an email notification of a post on this thread but it’s not here.

    Probably a spam post to the thread that the staff deleted. Happens all the time. Spammers love to post their advertisements to older threads.

    Oh, no worries, that's the first time it's happened to me. It was a bit derogatory anyway.

    Maybe it the same folks in your area reporting the UFOs seen in your area???
