    I bought a used ChessMaster XI disc set for my pc. It only came with one disc. The box appears to be made to hold more than one disc and the instructions refer to inserting disc 1 to install. That would infer that there are more discs.

    Can anybody tell me how many discs are supposed to be in the set? If this proves that I've been shortchanged then any suggestions on where I can purchase the set or download on line?

    Thanks in advance, I'll appreciate the advice.

    I found it on 'Kickasss torents':

    Of course I would trust them about as far as I could throw them not to have included a little trojan gift in the bargain but it does show there are versions online and probably direct from the chessmaster folks too.

    Please don't even THINK about downloading ANYTHING from such sites. They are 100% poison. They make their living duping weak minded people into getting their computers turned to zombies distributing porn and such, also with such gifts as keyloggers that report your every keystroke to some assshole in Nigeria who gets your credit card number when you buy stuff online.

    This site, Ubisoft, SEEMS to be on the up and up, it points to such sites as Amazon as the place where you actually buy it:

    Where it points to Amazon, I see prices from 82 bucks to over 400! What is the real price for a legitimate copy? I can't imagine how someone would even PUT UP a game for sale as such an inflated price. Who in their right mind would ever pay 400 or more for a game that could be bought for less than 100 bucks?
