The Fool's Errand is a puzzle / story game which was originally built for the Mac and later ported to DOS. Your goal is to discover the story by completing various puzzles. The graphics are simple but effective and charming. Since the game offers puzzles of several different types and features a story to link them all together, it is generally regarded as a classic game. If you need help, you can consult a walkthrough, but only as a last resort! :) Note that you can enter any symbols at the beginning to start the game. A sequel to this game was released in 2012 under the title "The Fool and His Money".
