Nope. Intel Macs don't support Classic.

Newer Spiderweb games that run natively under OS X should run fine on Intel Macs, though.

You could always get the Windows versions and run them in the Windows mode. Although it might be a waste of money just to have them all on one machine.

Actually, the older Spiderweb games can probably run on one of the variety of Mac on Mac emulators available. That's cheaper and easier than putting Windows on your computer with Boot Camp.

Or, since no Spiderweb games use 3D graphics, you can play them with Parallels and play the Windows versions in virtual Windows on your Mac.

OR just get Windows. But maybe that's out of the question. :P

That's what Randomizer and I both said.

Today's Wall Street Journal has a review of Parallels Desktop. The Windows emulator currently doesn't support 3D graphics, but it should be upgraded in the next version for gamers.

Parallels supports Windows going back to version 3.1, Linux, and OS/2.
