Just got home from a search of 4 software stores for The Sims and Livin' Large. Plenty of copies of Hot Date and House Party to be had. Finally found them at Best Buy, the same place I got my (first) copy of the FotR DVD.
And when I finally got home, whiny kids in tow, Eldest kidling says, "You checked that it's the Macintosh version, right, Mommy?"
