After the Fall is Over is not a book by Todd. It was the working title of the last manuscript Anne herself wrote. It was not accepted by publisher DelRey and I hope it will never be published. It involved connecting Earth with Pern again as part of a story with a rather weak plot and, in my honest opinion, would not have been a strong last Pern book by our beloved author.

Gigi's book is scheduled for later this year, October if I recall correctly.

As for the board game, there are two versions, both by Mayfair. They are regularly sold on eBay which I think is the best source for a reasonably priced copy.

I still have a copy of the Dragonriders PC video game. It's for Windows 98, I believe.

I think it can be played on a Windows computer, need not be Win98. besides, it was introduced in1999, so...

Problem is, Windows 10 is very limited on backwards compatibility. a lot of earlier software will not work on Win 10, as well as some hardware. I have a good webcam what will not work properly on Win 10, works fine on older windows. Bought it about 6 months before I upgraded to 10.
