Hoyle's tabletop games have been enjoyed by many over the years, so why not continue the trend? Hoyle Board Games features an extensive variety of classic board games known to millions of players across the world. Games include Backgammon, Battleships, Checkers, Chess, Dominos and Snakes and Ladders. A classic collection, we’re sure you will agree.

To give the game a little personality, Sierra has included several 'get-to-like' characters that consist of an alien from Mars, a talking Dinosaur, and a sassy businesswoman. But if that’s not good enough for you, you can also create your own characters and customise them. You can even have a bald girl with a moustache if you’re in the mood.

As far as gameplay is concerned, each game will see you facing opponents up to three in number. Players should be warned that the opposition is very talented and often cunning and unforgiving. But breaking the opposition in any of these games is reward enough to continue playing. If you can’t get satisfaction from the computer players, gamers also have the opportunity to participate in a multi-player game. This is perhaps the strongest point of Hoyle Board Games: multi-player madness!.

Another good one from Sierra, then. If you wanna play board games but can’t be bothered to set up a real game, nothing comes close to Hoyle.
