After Hours

Dinosaur sightings: Empire Deluxe


For games that really hit my sweet spot I like to keep the box and all the stuff that came in it. However, for Empire keeping everything is very important for another reason. During installation the game asks for the first word of the third paragraph on page 155 of the manual (or something similar). Ah copy protection, what a quaint concept. Note the manual is 175 pages long - don't see that anymore do you.
