Guides on emulating older games

Big Bang Board Games includes Chess, Checkers, Reversi, Tic-Tac-Toe, Mancala, Backgammon and 4-in-a-Row, all sharing common integration with Apple's iLife applications. Each game lets you play and manage iTunes songs for your soundtrack, and support "play by e-mail" functionality through Mail and Address Book. What's more, you can invite buddies to matches using iChat, share pictures with your game opponent using your iSight camera. (Macworld, Oct 26, 2004)

The games in Big Bang Board Games were also available individually from the publisher. Freeverse no longer exists, so it is not possible to purchase this product any more.

DL #1 contains all 7 individual games v2.3.4 PPC-only year 2004, are unregistered downloads from an old Freeverse website. These tested do not work using OSX 10.3.5 or older, possibly because of the aforementioned integration with iLife.

DL #2 is v2.5.8 year 2008 Universal Binaries.

DL #3 is v2.3.4 year 2006 Universal Binaries and all unlocked so that registering isn't needed. This bunch tested working in OSX 10.4.8 and later, not working in 10.3.5 or older, the status of OSX "10.3.9" wasn't tried. This very package was found on an oem grey install disc OSX 10.4.8 for MacBook2,1 and is registered using the name "Apple OEM". Included is a comprehensive user's Manual in PDF, English and Japanese.

Other registration, if necessary, for one game, effectively registers you for the whole package. Details:

I have Big Bang Board games 2.5.8. I test my version in mac os x 10.4.11 and mac os x 10.5.8.
Only problem is Big Bang chess crash in mac os x 10.4.11 and mac os x 10.5.8. All the other games works in both os x.

mac games Store has this game for sale for $24.95. This version is 2.5.9 ? I think this error by mac game store. I found out they make all error posting games on their website. 1 error is they list mac os x 10.6.8 is universal and mac os x 10.7 is universal and mac os x 10.8 is universal. That is error.
Universal should be mac os x 10.3.9 to mac os x 10.5.8.

mac Games store system requirement is mac os x 10.5.8
CPU type universal
CPU cores any
CPU speed 400 Mhz
Ram is 256
