Crazy Nick's Software Picks is a line of budget software developed and published by Sierra On-Line in 1992 for MS-DOS. The games were a collection of two or three minigames based on existing Sierra franchises, each selling for for $9.95. Although exact release dates are unknown, an advertisement suggests the first title was released at the end of the second quarter of 1992. It seems as though Sierra had intended to market a whole series of these games, however, only five were ever made, so they probably didn't sell very well. Most of the games are either very poorly-made action games or public domain games themed with a Sierra franchise.


When my cousin got the King's Quest: Collector's Edition around 1994, it came with King Graham's Board Game Challenge. We had a little fun with it, but it wasn't until many years later that I learned it was part of a larger series of games. Seeing that they were mostly public domain card games and board games, I never even tried playing them. However, in 2020, I tried them all out and beat most of them without much difficulty. I'm glad I never bought any of these games myself, because they're note very enjoyable.
