If you don't have Qfg 5 already and wish to buy it and you are having a hard time finding a copy, you might wanna try looking at Sierra's site, there's a link for Amazon's store where you can find a copy.

And also you may try looking at ebay's online store (for a used copy) :

Good Luck to you smile.gif

ADDED JUNE 2012:

The games (all the games, QFG 5 included!) are now available on the DRM Free (no digital rights management) game site GOG.com for $10 USD.

Direct link to the GOG page is here: http://www.gog.com/e...quest_for_glory.

The more links, the better... It's just a pity that the "used" prices are more than the game cost NEW. Oh well... that's what happens when a no-longer-produced game is still in demand.

<Agrees with Almirena> I was lucky finding a new copy of DF. Had to go the auction route to get my hands on GK2. You'd think Sierra would realize that the market would probably support a download site. Possibly charging a small fee to download games that they no longer wish to produce? <shrug> But then what do I know... wink.gif

Ah, I still remember when I got my copy of QfG5. 'Twas a hot day in December. (Decembers usually bring summer to us Aussies). I had asked the store about the release date for that game for about 3 months before it came out. I think they were starting to notice.

Then, on that day in December, I called the store *again* and asked if it had come in yet. They said "Yes". My heart beat a little faster. I asked them to put a copy aside for me and, as soon as time permitted, I rushed down there posthaste. Luckily, my copy was still under the table. I took it, paid for it, did a little triumphant dance, and went home.

Okay, so it's not much of a story. Sorry. <shrug>

There are many types of magic, but all require a sharp mind and a cool head. There is no puzzle I can't solve, no problem I can't think my way out of. When you feel confused or uncertain, you can always rely on me to untangle the knots and put everything back in order for you.

aye, and the blood of the Hydra was me green beer on St. Patty's Day! *imagine a little sarcasm with a cheesy Irish accent*

I got mine around the same time as well and remember playing it on my horribly slow and outdated system I had at the time that almost didn't even need fixes for timer bug problems. Go figure.

I got mine around 1999 too - I didn't know about the game till then basically and then I asked a friend who owns a software/game store and he ordered it for me cause he ran out of copies - I got the Collection CD with the Qfg 5 soundtrack in it a few days earlier (he had that one lol) at the same time biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

Got both games at the same time a few years back, buying both of them though the Sierra On-line store before they removed them from their product catalog.
"Mathematics, rightly viewed, possesses not only truth, but supreme beauty -- a beauty cold and austere, like that of sculpture, without appeal to any part of our weaker nature, without the gorgeous trappings of painting or music, yet sublimely pure, and capable of a stern perfection such as only the greatest art can show. The true spirit of delight, the exaltation, the sense of being more than Man, which is the touchstone of the highest excellence, is to be found in mathematics as surely as poetry."
