CHINESE CHECKERS
Version 2.1
November 1, 1992

Copyright (c) 1992, ImagiSOFT, Inc.
All rights reserved.


WHAT IS SHAREWARE?

Shareware is a beautiful concept that gives you a chance to
"try" Chinese Checkers and other programs before you "buy"
them. If you try Chinese Checkers and continue to use it,
please send us the $16.95 registration fee and we will send
you the latest Deluxe Version of Chinese Checkers.


BONUS FEATURES IN THE DELUXE VERSION

The Deluxe Version has the following bonus features which
are not available in the Shareware Version:
* Save Game Option
* Undo Last Move
* Animated Icons On/Off
* Sound Blaster / Adlib Music
OTHER BENEFITS OF REGISTERING

1. The Deluxe Version uses about 100K less hard disk
space. This is because it doesn't need all the
documentation files and uses a more powerful method
of compressing the graphics files.

2. We will notify you of major updates to Chinese
Checkers which you will generally be able to receive
for only a $3.00 shipping and handling charge.

3. We will notify you when we develop other new
products. Registered users generally receive a
discount when new products are introduced.

4. When you register, we will send you a shareware copy
of at least one of our other products to evaluate.
Our most popular product is MOVIES TO GO!, which is a
powerful, graphics-oriented video movie guide with
information on more than 4,000 of Hollywood's best
movies.

THANK YOU!

We at ImagiSOFT enjoyed creating Chinese Checkers. David,
is primarily responsible for Chinese Checkers. He spent six
tedious months working in assembly language developing the
user interface, and another four weeks developing Chinese
Checkers itself. One year later, David spent another month
implementing the most often requested suggestions for our
Deluxe Version 2.0. Russ spent a week on the artwork -- we
have received hundreds of letters applauding his talent!
The newest member of our team, Robert Allen, composed the
music. Our quality control people, Kathy, and Dorine gave
this program a thorough work out before they signed off.
Mike coordinated this project and wrote the documentation.

In June of 1992, Chinese Checkers was nominated for
"BEST NEW PRODUCT" and "BEST ENTERTAINMENT SOFTWARE" at the
Shareware Industry Awards in Indianapolis. We would like to
thank Michael E. Callahan, Randy MacLean, Bob Ostrander,
Jim Perkins, and other members of the nominating committee
for helping to make ImagiSOFT famous!

Of course, it is the financial support of our hundreds of
loyal customers which has Chinese Checkers possible. We
appreciate you most of all.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
