Hoyle's Official Book of Games: Volume 3 was the third volume in Sierra On-Line's series of computer games based on the officially licensed Hoyle rules and trademark. Unlike the two previous game, this one was made with Sierra's new improved VGA SCI engine, and focused on board games, where the previous entries in the series had featured card games.

Games featured were Backgammon, Checkers, Dominoes, Yacht (a takeoff on Yahtzee), Pachisi, and Snakes and Ladders.

Connection to the Quest for Glory seriesEdit

Ad Avis and Baba Yaga compete with the player and many other Sierra characters (from other franchises). There is no lore narrative however, characters only talk about game choices and rules (though given different personalities, and sometimes 'accents'; Ad Avis does make the occasional reference to things like Allah and Prophet, to give him Middle East flair). They give warnings, if a move cannot be made. Sometimes there are special animations for the characters. Especially if they get angry at the player's moves.

Characters Edit

Like the first volume, and unlike the second volume, this game offers Sierra characters as opponents in the various games.
