What Are You Playing This Weekend?

It’s the first weekend of the new year! How are you going spend it? Are you going to play something old, something new, something borrowed, or something blue? As for me, I’m going with something old…like way old. You see, when I was a kid, I used to play a ton of Taipan at my friend Chris’ house on his Apple IIc. I spent so many hours staring at the green graphics on a black background that something burned into my brain and it’s still my favorite way to look at word processor programs. The game thrilled me with its trading, inventory management, and high-seas battles. Recently, I downloaded the Android version of Taipan. It’s every bit as awesome as the original…though sometimes it feels like it’s running on an Apple IIc.

How about you? What’s on your weekend playlist?

  1. That’s how I remember playing Oregon trail and some game where Snoopy flies his dog house and u shoot at the Red Baron

  2. O.K. You’ve just convinced me to go back and play Lords of the Realm 2.

    Now… does anybody know how I can get it to work on my MacBook that’s running 10.6.8? Last time I played that game was on Windows 95. Emulator, maybe?


      1. That would require me to actually have the disk. I think it’s somewhere in my parents’ house, but trying to find it would be like trying to find another hit song in C-lo Green’s repertoire.
