Sid Meier's Civilization
Start at the dawn of recorded history - 4000 BC, then nurture your society towards the space age. In the beginning, you'll labor to simply survive while building your settlements, discovering new technologies and fending off barbarians. As your empire progresses, you'll compete against other empires guided by history's legendary leaders like Napoleon, Genghis Khan, and Julius Caesar. Test your capacity for expansion and domination as you guide your civilization throughout the centuries.

Sid Meier's Railroad Tycoon Deluxe
Railroad Tycoon Deluxe is the upgrade to the award-winning, best-selling Sid Meier's Railroad Tycoon. In the upgrade to this classic game, players are entrepreneurs in the early 1800's and must compete against railbarons as they try to build their railroad empire. Six spectacular new areas to develop: North America, Eastern US, Western US, South America, Africa and Europe. Eleven new trains - 32 total - allow the flexibility to choose the right engine for the job.

X-COM: UFO Defense
As commander of X-COM, a covert organization formed by the world's governments, you must investigate and defeat the alien invasion. Intercept UFOs as they sweep across the Earth. Investigate UFO crash sites and alien bases. Plan a strategy for research and manufacture of captured technologies. Take charge of tactical operations in the 3-D isometric Battlescope display.

Heroes of Might and Magic
The realms of Might and Magic are expanding. New lands have been discovered and you must rise to the challenge of conquering them. Beware, for many warlords have risen to test your leadership and tactics. You must carefully manage all the resources at your disposal or you will surely be defeated. Recruit your heroes, gather your armies, and lead them to victory.

Conquest of the New World Deluxe
The Deluxe Edition offers the compelling gameplay of the original Conquest of the New World where players command explorers, settlers, and mercenary soldiers destined to survey the land, build new colonies, and protect their emerging nation. This deluxe version adds 10 preset scenarios, a game editor, improved diplomacy, sophisticated A.I. engine, and many new extraordinary discoveries to uncover.

Jagged Alliance: Deadly Games
From the makers of Jagged Alliance comes a multiplayer strategy game with more new features than you can shake a grenade launcher at. Play a solo campaign or go at it with friends & enemies via mode, LAN, or serial connection. Create your own missions with the scenario editor for infinite replayability. With 70 mercenaries and over 6000 lines of digitized speech you get even more "in your face" attitude. Lock and load: it's time for Deadly Games.

M.A.X. Mechanized Assault & Exploration
Your mission: Colonize new worlds on distant planets. As the Mission Commander, you and the Mechanized Assault & Exploration (M.A.X.) force that you lead are the first ones in. Mining stations, power plants, tactical combat vehicle factories, habitats - it's up to you to plan and construct them. Create colonies, mine resources and eliminate all rival factions trying to do the same. You'll have to push yourself to the limit to survive the ultimate showdown in strategic warfare.

Dark Colony
A futuristic real-time strategy game based on a war between a gray alien race and human colonists over the planet Mars. Choose between the alien's superior genetic technology or the humans advanced robotic and cybernetic technology. To claim victory, you must exploit Mar's hidden resources and discover the dark secrets of an ancient race.

For DOS/Windows (via DOSBox) [*Please review compatibility/platform sections in 'What You Get']


This item is for the original media, and includes only the media (ie. CD, floppy ...) UNLESS specifically stated above and/or in the title. If more than just the media is included, it will state which items are (ie. box, manual, etc ). Items that come in a sleeve refer to a generic CD sleeve (typically white) and will be sent with shipping protection to avoid damage during transit. If available, we will also send the front and/or back CD inserts if in stock. If these are important to you, please message us to verify we have them available to send. Please do not assume items are included other than what's stated. Again, ask questions PRIOR to purchasing if you have any concerns.


All images/pictures are stock photos and are for reference only, mainly to show the type of game you will be getting. Please read "WHAT YOU GET" for what is included with the media. Screenshots may vary based on your own computer system, video card, monitor, etc.


Computers are like people, each one is different. Unlike console games, a computer game may install and work flawlessly on one system but may need adjustments on another. This is due to a variety of factors, mainly the OS platform running, video card you have, drivers, protection software installed, etc. Many times manufacturers release updates to games to fix bugs and add enhancements. We would be happy to help get the game going on your computer, but ultimately compatibility issues are the responsibility of the buyer. We suggest going to Google and searching for the name of the game along with the words "system requirements" to determine if your system is suitable. Ultimately, we are not responsible for software compatibility problems or publisher's errors.


Stated within the auction is what platform the game will work on (ie. Windows, Mac, Linux...) This is a generic statement and specific platform versions (ie. XP, Vista...) will have to be researched by the buyer. Games that came out PRIOR to XP or higher will not specifically state they will work on that release, but only because they came out before those versions were made. Many, if not most, will work on XP or higher with a few quick adjustments. We provide instructions with all items purchased on how to do this adjustment using the Program Compatibility Wizard. If we find out that an item will definately not work on a specific version, we will state it. For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program if the Program Compatibility Wizard does not work.

64-Bit Windows OS Systems:
For 64-bit Operating Systems, older games most likely will NOT work due to 64-bit systems not being able to run 16-bit programming code (most games prior to 2000). For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program.

Macintosh Systems:
For Macintosh programs, most older games will need to be run in Classic Environment if you have a MAC OS X 10.0 - 10.4 version. Please research Google on how to do this, or send us a message for information prior to purchasing. If your MAC OS system doesn't support Classic Environment (ie. MAC OS X 10.5 or Higher OR Intel Macs), you will have to try running it using the free program called SheepShaver, but compatibility is not ensured. Please research prior to purchasing or ask questions.


Please verify you have the required hardware in order to use the specified media (ie. CD, DVD, floppy drives, etc.) If the item comes as a floppy disc, make sure you have either the needed 3.5" floppy drive or the bigger and older 5.25" floppy drive.


  • Ask questions PRIOR to purchasing an order to avoid any confusion.
  • Be patient if there are problems during installation or gameplay. Typically someone else has already ran into that problem and has listed a solution online. Contact us and we will do our best to help.
  • Be sure to update your video card drivers and search for updates to the game from the manufacturer.

    International buyers please email/chat with us to determine if you are eligible for shipping of a specific product. If you are, then international buyers not shipping to an address within the U.S. can expect their orders to take anywhere from 5 days to 4 weeks to be received, depending on how fast/well USPS is moving. Additionally, international orders typically have to go through governmental customs, which can delay the arrival process. Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to buying. Customs fees are normally charged by the shipping company or collected when you pick the item up. These fees are not additional shipping charges.
