I am so glad I posted this game to see how many love this game. And I have the new version, and it is still in the box, waiting to play it later, but reading how many people enjoy this game, I am going to load it right now.

A lot of people are having problems playing it on XP, I don't have XP, I just hope it works on WINME. Has anyone played it on WINME?

I think it's only the Game of the Year edition that has 400 puzzles: red box, unlike both the old box and new DVD-style box, much harder to find.

Hi All........MacDee and I having spent the last little while looking for a copy of the 400 puzzle updated version, I can verify that it definitely is the "Puzzle Game of the Year" version. However, we've not been able to find a copy for sale. Anyone have better luck?

Love, Witchen =O) smile

Cool, Betje.....That's great. I ordered it. Now we'll see if they come through, or I get an "out of stock" notice. Thanks very much!

Love, Witchen

Okay, guys......I ran into a little trouble with the wisconsinpc.com site. The order went through okay, maybe. frown I got a message from their ShopRite store host, later, that their "shopping basket" was not properly securing credit card numbers. I tried to cancel my order immediately, but no dice, all mail is getting returned. I don't know if the order took or not, or if my credit card number went into quarantine or what, but I'm sure going to be watching this one closely if the game shows up and again when I get my CC bill. I would suggest that if anyone is thinking about ordering from them, perhaps that's not a good idea!!! Love, Witchen =O)

Okay guys the game I bought from ebay comes in a DVD style Case, kind of red, with "XPLOSIV" big white letters on the side and says it has 350 puzzles from microsoft, I guess this is the new version. I didn't know there was an old version, with 400 puzzles, would like to get the other 50 puzzles thumbsup

Witchen, I'm sorry, I had no idea the site was unreliable, or I wouldn't have mentioned it. I tried to order it myself, but stopped when it turned out they didn't take international orders.

Hi Liz....

The newer version is called "Pandora's Box: Game of the Year Edition" and it has 400 puzzles. The game with 350 puzzles is the first game. It's still available at CD Acess. wink Here\'s the link for the 2nd version. The second version is very hard to find, even Microsoft doesn't have it. eek

Ok, I had it backwards. I was thinking if the new version was made after the old version, Why is not available anymore or hard to find?

You know that the older the game is, it becomes rare and difficult to find, isn't that just weird?
Humm.

Liz, both original versions by Microsoft are rare now. For whatever reason, the varied re-releases by Xplosiv and now Ubi Soft only offer the 350 puzzle version.

But let's remember, folks - 350 puzzles in a great game at a good price is still a pretty good deal. wink

Good point, Jack and I'll consider myself lucky to have the 350 puzzle version. It is a terrific game and I'm enjoying it immensely! wink

And, Betje, no worries! laugh Not your fault! I am working on getting my order backed completely out this morning.

--------------------LATER--------------

Just to follow up, I got in contact with the Wisconsinpc sales dept. this a.m. and was reassured that the site is, indeed, fully secured. (not sure I accept that, considering) But, in any case they are also out of stock on Pandora's Box 400 and there's no chance of getting more. I cancelled the order.

Love, Witchen =O)

You did great! I am extremely happy for you and that was one great deal. OLAD is at the top of my list of "Least Favorite Adventure Games!"

Love, Witchen
