Looking for Windows 3.1 Christmas Games

Post by Roger_Klotz »

I used to have some games on my windows 3.1 computer that were Christmas related. On one Santa would go around and drop gifts into chimney's and the others I can't quite remember. There were at least two, but may have been up to four of them on that computer.

Well, needless to say that computer died a long time ago and I've been searching for the games ever since. It ran as xmas93.exe. Does anyone have any idea what the games might've been?

It doesn't ring a bell.
I played mostly DOS games on Win3.1... oh wait, no I didn't. That required closing windows to do back then, hah. That is a hard thing to remember though. I remember playing Castle of the Winds, Pipe Dream, Bang Bang(but still played Scorched Earth more), and Chips Challenge.

With it being so long ago, I thought I would bump this and see if anyone has any idea what the title of the game may be.

Hi Roger, welcome back!

I suspect this one isn't the present dropping one, but in case it is: https://youtu.be/C-LCdxz7uLA

If you haven't already looked through it, I suggest giving the LGR Christmas playlist a quick squizz: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=P ... 11BDA217EF

I went searching for the filename and found your MobyGames forum post.

Someone posted a video of "Christmas for Windows '93" which is most likely what you're thinking of:

That is definitely it, Commander Spleen! Thank you for helping me with this!

I don't even remember posting to Moby Games. I guess it's just a sign I have been away from forums way too long. I can't believe the mystery is finally solved!
