Try the links now, it should work.

Hoyle Book of Games, Volume I. It was a Sierra themed card game. You could choose to play against various Sierra adventure game characters, such as Rosella, Graham, Roger Wilco, Sonny Bonds, Colonel Dijon, etc, and other other original characters (some based on Sierra designers, and their children) to play various games like Cribbage, Hearts, Gin Rummy, etc.

The characters would have conversations with each other, talking about their ancestral history,  where they came from, relatives, hobbies, etc.

Well, ya, King's Quest is on Earth. Daventry is very old city from a long time ago. It's in ruins now and people aren't quite sure exactly where it used to be. There are some archaeologists searching through the ruins, they think they know its Daventry. But its somewhere on Earth."-Roberta Williams http://kingsquest.wikia.com/wiki/File:Daventryisearth.ogg

Oh, very cool!

Unrelated question: By volume, what percent of the KQ wiki did you write?

Umm, I've probably at least edited each article in some way. I created many of them, many are just started so I could remember that the reference was made. Many still need to be expanded.

When I started editing, I think there were only less than 200 articles in the wiki.

The wiki is extremely impressive. The way you've collected, organized, and presented information is really quite excellent. You said that your profession is archeology, right? You seem like the perfect historian type.

Anthropology  and archaeology was my major. History was one of my minors.

I'm currently working on my masters in archaeology.
