Easy playing board games

  • Summary: I have been using Hoyle Board Games for years, as they have a very good platform - once you have got rid of the irritating speech and music, though some may be amused by these. I bought these for a family member, even though they are not the most up to date version. Some games you play solitaire, but others are against computer generated IDs. All the usual ones, including a simple backgammon, which is actually winnable! Gives stats to see how you do.

Waste of money

  • Summary: I don't usually write reviews but am so cross that I have made an exception in this case. The programme would not install, due to a corrupt file, the tech support a Encore/Hoyle is abysmal. Can't even find an e-mail address to complain to.

  • Summary: Hoyle is always synonymous with quality and rightly so. comparison with the 2003 board games version it comes up a tad wanting. Nevertheless a good addition for puzzle enthusiasts.

Very disappointing

  • Summary: Very disappointing. Not nearly as good as the previous older versions. The Tile Games, Dominoes are much poorer in quality. The instructions are not easy to follow for some of the newer games. Very disappointing.

Loads of fun

  • Conclusion: Another DVD designed for PC - combines the 2 single titles of puzzles and board games into one. Updated content, enjoyable - easy to play - if you like this type of game - you really can't go wrong with this. Both myself and my kids love it. Entertainment and value - without breaking the bank.

Much better than the old one.......

  • Summary: Got a host of these game from hoyle - i updated as have vista now and the old ones won't work. Plenty of extra new content - and it seems a crisper / better layout somehow too. Not had any problem with Sudoku - like the last review states - only problem i have is that i am no good at it :-). Overall - for the price - i personally think you get great value for money.

Yes, it's fun but ....

  • Summary: I already have the 2005 version which won't work on Windows Vista, so I updated to this in order to play it on my bang-up-to-date new laptop. There's extra games on this version, and the disk in general is a lot of fun, but Sudoku keeps crashing and just won't work at all. My tame IT techie tells me it's a fault on the programme: I've emailed Hoyle but have had no reply yet.
