Brown Found PC game CoP ?!?

I was just looking at image results on google for pics of dragons from pern. I found a game called Chronicles of Pern. I didn't know there were any games other than the board game which I would love to find. Are there others out there too?

There's a PC game, a Dreamcast game, and I believe a game for the old commadore computers.

Yes indeed.... there is other games...like Sara stated above.

There is also one more game made from an Anne McCaffrey story...but it has to do with the *Freedom* books....called *Freedom the first Resistance*.

The old computer games Dragonriders of Pern by Epyx were made for Atari (5.25" disk) and Comodore computers (casette and disk).

The newer Chronicls of Pern game by Grolier (Red Storm ent.) is on CD and available for PC and Dreamcast.

The boardgame knows two edition too and is regularly offered on eBay and to be had for a good price (which I consider between 15-25 US dollars) regularly. To actually play I prefer the version that has the board made out of giant jigsaw puzzle pieces rather than the one with the folding board.

I suppose the Nova 'Which way' Thread-Fighting book can also be classed as a game. ^^ The one with 'the White Dragon' illustration on the front.

True Sara maybe we could say the Nova game and the two Crossroad Adventure books by Jody Lynn Nye (Dragonharper and Dragonfire) are "bookgames".

My family and I have that and love it. We're tinkering with making some modifications. My wife watched Ebay carefully and picked it up for about $25 US. She was actually searching for something else and had a flash of inspiration to grab DRoP instead. You can see why I keep her around. LOL

**Electricdragon, wives are great for many things, not just for looking for stuff on ebay. Just ask my hubby but then he thinks I'm a smartie*^@# when something like that happens so I shall try not too much if I find something new on ebay. LOL!
**For R'na, the commodore 64 game came as a single game and in a 5-game pack (I have the 5 game pack on my shelf but I've seen the single version on ebay occasionally), computer game was made by UBISOFT called "Chronicles of Pern-Dragonriders of Pern" and there's also a Mayfair boardgame (the pictures were drawn by Robin Wood who also wrote "the People of Pern" book). I can vouch for these as I have them as well as Dragonharper by Jody Lynn Nye but as for the others, Electricdragon seems to score something good by the sounds of his laughter above (with hip hip hoorays for his wife).
