Zillions of Games is a great collection of board games, puzzles, and assorted brainteasers. Take your pick from old standards such as Chinese Checkers, Chess, Towers of Hanoi, and Tic-Tac-Toe, or try your hand at more-exotic games such as Senat, Mu-Torere, and Fanorona. The suite includes 48 basic games, with variants on each so that you may be getting close to zillions of choices. You can play against the computer or against opponents on the Net. There's even support for tactile force feedback input through the latest mouse technology. Each game comes with instructions and strategic tips. There's piece animation, movement sounds, and optional background music as you play. If you're not satisfied with the extensive collection of games available to you, you can modify the game files and create your own variants. Reviewed on Feb 18 2001.
