Other Games

for Macintosh Plus and Mini vMac

The Fool's Errand 3.0

copyright: Cliff Johnson
mod date: May 23, 2002
license: freeware

My sister's favorite computer game. "A wandering Fool seeks his fortune in the Land of Tarot in The Fool's Errand and braves the enchantments of the High Priestess. This 1987 award-winning game was the first computer metapuzzle, a rare blend of storytelling, playful hands-on visual puzzles, and cryptic treasure map." See "http://www.fools-errand.com/" for info about planned sequel.

As mentioned on the linked page, a recent Macintosh version of Stuffit Expander will expand the archive correctly. Otherwise, just unzipping will give files in MacBinary format. If you rename the files by adding ".bin" to the end of the name, then "Stuffit Expander 4.0.1" running within Mini vMac can expand them. "MacBinary II+ 1.0.2" also will work. Thanks to Jason King for pointing out this issue.

"MacWorld called this 1989 puzzle collection At the Carnival 'more than a Fool and less than an Errand,' meaning lots of puzzles but no story or metapuzzle."
