While still in beta, this is a solid start to a much-needed OS X version of an enjoyable time-waster. The interface borrows heavily from the time-tested Classic version of the game -- that's a good thing -- and the whimsical sound effects are a nice touch. The only serious flaw is that a couple of the major rules of the original game are unimplemented. In the original, games are won by the first player to reach 5000 points over the course of several hands, while in this version, hands are independent of each other. In addition, MacBornes does not feature the extension rule in which players must hit 700 miles exactly, with the first player to do so deciding whether the race will continue to 1000 miles. The absence of these rules makes the game somewhat less interesting. The good news is that the developer is aware of these problems and has indicated that he intends to address them in a future release. In the meantime, as beta releases go, this one shows plenty of promise.
[Version 1.0b10]
