I thought that this would be “Fantasy Pack 6”, as in, there were 5 other packs before this one. Some Googling reveals that the proper title for the set is “Fantasy 6 Pack”, which means that my set is incomplete since I only got 4 unique games. But deeper searching and squinting at the box image available on Amazon reveals that I do, in fact, have a complete set since one of the games actually counts as 3:

  • Disciples II (2 discs) — this is the one that counts as 3 games since this includes Dark Prophecy, Servants of the Dark, and Guardians of the Light
  • Prince of Qin (3 discs)
  • Robin Hood: The Legend of Sherwood
  • Dragon Throne: Battle of Red Cliffs

    Thanks for the link. I didn’t know work was being done to reimplement engines for those Living Books CD-ROMs (I have collected several).
