Could you possibly support Hoyle Card Games 2005 and Monopoly 2000? I played these games as a child and wanted to relive the memories again. Is this possible? :D :D :D

ScummVM doesn't work by request, it takes many months, if not years, of hard work to support a single game. This would require someone who is very talented and is personally extremely determined to bring the game to modern systems. To expect someone to dedicate a significant amount of their life (unpaid) to the project would be unreasonable.

The reason some early Hoyle games can be played on ScummVM is that they were made using Sierra's SCI engine that was used in the 80s and 90s to create point and click adventure games (which ScummVM is designed to support) such as the latter entries of the Space Quest and King's Quest series.
