I still love this game and have wished for a real sequel for nearly 20 years now

I didn't know they had a Canadian version of that game. We used to play Cross Country USA all the time in our grade school computer lab on Apple II computers. Good times.

Funny thing is that I thought it was a Canadian production -- I didn't realize there was a Cross Country USA.

Other epic games from that time include Below the Root, Odell Lake, and Number Munchers :)

But yeah, my sister and I played the heck out of Jones back in the day. Was a great, simple multiplayer game for its time. I never understood why it seemed to get so much hate.

Number Muncher made me the the king of math speed tests in 3rd grade.

I found a facebook Jones in the Fast Lane multiplayer project in the works. I tried it out but it seemed a little buggy. I like the more faithful flash version better.

I love the game, but there's only so many times I can play against Jones himself before it starts getting repetitive. The new flash version has online multiplayer available but there's literally never anyone else playing.

Yeah I don't like waiting for Jones' turn to finish, so I usually end up just playing solo and trying to either a) beat my record for finishing the game with maxed stats or b) try to have a ton of money, buy a ton of gold at it's lowest price, then sell for millions when inflation hits.
