$100,000 Pyramid computer game...
« on: September 20, 2003, 07:20:31 PM »
is there a place on the internet where you can download a $100,000 Pyramid computer game? i have the Sierra game, but i don't like the lack of a $100,000 tournament.

even if the game is just the Winners Circle, i'd like to sample it. If you can help, please do so. Thanks in advance.

 I don't know of any Pyramid computer games with a $100K tournament feature, as the 1988 Box Office Software version doesn't have that feature either.

 I don't think the people who create game show programs do so in their bedroom, Whosahman.

   Here's a link to an uploaded copy I found of the 1988 Box Office Software version:

 It's not free of charge.  This site charges for membership.

And I don't make my games in my bedroom.  For that matter, I'm single, so I don't make anything in my bedroom.

OK, mind out of the gutter...

Then why was that site called \"Free Game Downloads\"?

It's especially ludicrous where they beg for money ONLY when you're ready to download the game.

 Since you're pirating copyrighted materials (and don't get into the whole \"abandonware\" issue with me...the bottom line is that you are pirating copyrighted materials, and you know it), I don't see where you are in much of a position to complain about them charging a fee.

And the 100k cd has a big time crash in it. Seems to happen after the winner's circle is played, but sometimes between the main game and winners circle.

I get that crash quite often on XP, even when running it in 98 compatablilty mode.  95 mode or Me mode doesn't work, either.  It only works correctly on my son's Windows 98se machine.

 Why is it whenever someone mentions something you don't like even a tad bit, you change the subject?
