I've got (obviously) KQ1 (twice)-6 (KQ5 in English and French, KQ6 in English and German), A first look at the upcoming King's Quest VII, and an interview with RW.
I think those mini-games apply to every collection.

....Sierra is weird... I understand what the crown has to do with KQ... but two swords with lightning? That isnt KQish at all... Swords never had much of a role, and certainly not magic swords... It probably wouldve been more relevant for the QfG series.... I never liked Sierra's marketing ???

I don't debate, I ramble with STYLE!

Just out of curiousity --- did anyone ever buy the Roberta Williams Anthology that had almost all of Roberta's games on it?

Never heard of it :-\

BTW there has been talk of people not able to run KQ on XP, now i know this thread has nothing to do with that (and i dont know if this has been mentioned before but) if you have trouble running them on XP you could run them through safe mode of XP :D, something new i learnt ;D

Its true. Disk one exploded and cost us a CD-ROM drive. I still have Disk 2 though. And I'm probably going to get it again...

I should of cleaned it first. Let this be a lesson to everyone, keep your CDs from disrepair and dirt and they won't blow up the CD-ROM drive.

Taking care of your stuff makes a difference -- --  ;)

I have found you need to really take care of dvds and in many ways they are more fragile than video tapes.

I have heard of CD's exploding in one of my "friend of a friend"'s computers. It literally tore through the entire computer. Reminds me of how frag grenades work...  :pokerface:

I've never seen one explode, but I've seen something similar.

I've seen CDs just snap, when someone applys pressure to both sides. One time, this was not the case.

I saw someone decide to snap a CD, and instead of breaking into two parts, flew off in all directions, in countless pieces.

Even the hard part of the CD, seperated from the film-like part.

Scary. :o
