"I would like to see the Laura Bow games first and also Conquests of Camelot and Conquests of the Longbow. After that, bring on the rest!"

I'm not familiar with the games but they look like they're good.

I had those things too, until I sold the game on eBay a few years ago - so am very glad I will be able to play the game again now. smile
