The art work was pretty good considering the limitations of graphical displays in 1992.

Hexed? On screen 10, I think you mean Avalon Hill hexagonal (six-sided), not hexadecimal (base 16). Anyway, thanks for the memories!

I remember this one - it never ran. I even got a new motherboard with a faster processor in an attempt to get it to work - no luck. It never ran. I still have the original box and disks and all - it's in the large pile marked "these games beat me." Most are from the DOS era. Privateer 2 was another never-ran, Daggerfall took forever to figure out how to get it to run, and it occasionally crashed anyway. I have boxes of games that "ran" in DOS that never actually ran; a common failing of earlier games; of course we weren't spending $60 a pop then either, so the failure was less costly at least in monetary terms. But buying, trying and troubleshooting was a passtime of its own, back in the day.
