This link does not work! :-(
But you could always play ChipWits
inside an Apple II emulator! ;-)
See some screenshots:
ChipWits has been discussed before
in this mail list:

Very nice, indeed. This program is a winner
in the education category for RealBasic apps.
You could run Robot Odyssey, Rocky Boats,
Oregon Trail and hundreds of educational games
in AppleWin, an Apple II emulator.
There are some ftp servers (like asimov)
full of apps and games for this platform.
These games, with their almost abstract graphics,
are really eye and mind opening. Running them,
you remember what really contributes to
an engaging interactive learning experience
using the computer. It's not only about the
jawdropping graphics, like all game console makers
and many movie makers want us to believe...
Actually, i believe that for young minds,
these first games with almost abstract graphics
are most useful for their cognitive development
in many areas.
Ah, and they always require that you
read the instructions! :D
